Thanks Red! I almost thought I'd get old and die before I ever saw wheels up on one of my cars! '64 in two months, so glad it finally happened! And with a car I built from spare parts in my backyard!
Good going Vall!
Thanks Bruce! Had a great time, and huge improvements in the Falcon's performance vs. last year, and also my performance! The Falcon ran a full second faster in the 1/8th mile, and I cut some fantastic lights! In fact, I didn't win every race, but never got beat off the line! Last year I never beat anyone off the line! I cut one light I am really proud of at .050 sec. reaction time. And the real biggy for me was I got the front wheels in the air today! Not way up there, but people stopped by the pits to tell me I was lifting the front wheels 3"-4" at launch, and that's a monumental deal for me, as I've never done that before with any car!
I'm jealous Chris. its going to be a long time till mine can do that, but I'm working on it.
Good Luck Vall!
Getting ready to take off in the morning to the Billetproof pre '64 drags I Toutle, Wa.! Going to run my BBC powered '63 Falcon, and see if I can do better than last year! I couldn't get the Hurst slicks to hook last year, so it spun the tires the length of the 1/8th mile. Went out and found some spare 10" wheels, and mounted up my 10.5x30x15 Goodyear Eagles, so I'll have something stickier this year! Also made up a tow bar setup to flat tow it old school style. Hooked the Falcon up to my '69 Suburban and towed it all over town to see how it did. Very impressed with how well it follows, and how much easier it is to tow vs. a trailer and car weight.

In 2 conversations now I've heard the word "water puppies"
as in "he would turn on the water puppies to cool the engine till the next race."
is this a circulation pump? is it an old term? never heard of it, and
Seems everyone takes the summer off from their projects, and either drives them, or is outside doing something! I just spent most of a day removing the gilmer drive system off my Falcon, and returning to factory style V belts and pulleys. After going through two of those cog belts in a year, and the resulting black rubber dust to constantly clean up; I said "uncle!" A great big pain, and not worth it just for a cool look. These systems are junk!
Its been a little quiet here lately. If anyone is interested, I'm rebuilding my 69 FMX transmission with the help of a video I purchased. I've never been inside an auto before, but with the video (3 hours worth) everything is covered. With the video, the Trans rebuild kit and a few extra clutch parts, I've got around $150 into the job.
