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. Info is here in the FaceBook group.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/badshoe/

 The old Falcon came through at the local nostalgia event! Ended up winning "Best Competition Car" at the show! Big surprise to me!

I know this is not under construction kind of stuff, but there has been no traffic here in a while.

went to a car show today and thought I would share some of it.

The video is a combination of a Cellphone on the windshield and a dual camera automotive DVR/GPS (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0083QOA3Q/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?i...). I used Camtasia Studio to lay the cell phone video over the Tachograph R300 video and to match up the time lines.

was the Navigator providing the readout speed & position or is that some sort of GoPro option?. that was a cool little set up.

Yes, the safety truck was setting the pace. It was a bit strange. No safety check, no helmet, no nothing. Just take your car on the track. I was behind a Tesla which was behind a Vette. The guy in the Vette said he was not all out. My Navigator was. From what I saw, I think my group went a little faster than some of the other groups. I watched a Mini with 4 people in it and the windows down running around the track as well. I know we all had fun.

Does that red safety truck set the pace? they wont let you go out and really open up.
