Good to see I have not been shunned , would have hated to choke you all with my mind. Laughing

The TA is being prepped for the Tri Power Nationals ( it's a Pontaic thing) as we speak.

The guts were swapped into an IA block making a nice 13.5:1 485 cu in thumper.

Sounds nasty on the stand. Twisted Evil

Hoping for some single digit runs without the bottle.


Oh , started a new P/T job at Performance Years/Pypes as a tech advisor/sales.

Maybe I can get them to carry more late model stuff, They just did GP(1969-77) catalog and a"big car" one is in the works for next spring.

For the picture whores.

Oh here is my scooter, runs 10-oh @ 131mph. Need I say , all Pontiac power , no bottle.

Just remeber you ASKED for pics. Cool

[b]Bringing up my girls right


Still too young for the driver seat but got the racers attitude down!!


Customer car got the cover of HPP awhile back, 4300# car that went 12.50z


Shop car that is stripped for paint right now, may be selling as is. True GTO 400 4 speed


Customers 70 that got a 462 cu in upgrade


Lost my mind and put a 301 in a T1000. Guys at HPP loved it and invited me to a shoot-out. Instead of being part of the shoot-out they gave it a 4 page spread!


Customers Tempest that even fooled my kids that is was daddys car (same year , color etc) but mine was a LeMans.


Just another black 400 4 speed TA. Got my old race motor, just detuned.


X burgundy 301 Turbo car, now a Black 400 beast.


One of my favorite shots, too bad about the focus. This is right before it made it's first shakedown run at Cecil County. Ran a 9.40 straight as an arrow.



RARE non hidaway 4 speed Judge. Test driving a 100k+ car is a white knuckle ride.

That T1000 is like a little guy with a fat chick. You know it's wrong, but you just can't look away. LMAO!

Love how you worded the T/A. You know, it's just a common thing to find a 400/4sp combo. Wish I had a straight enough body for a black paint job. Those are some nice cars for sure. Beer

Back from the Tri Power Nationals.

The TA did not make it, ran outta time. Mad

Anyway did crew for Spotts FED ( pics above), he got a personal best of 7.13@ 192 mph using all of the track. One run the wheels were up over 100 foot out. His nick name is Iron Balls for a reason.

While we were packing the chute up pulled the Butler GTO that just ran the fastest et and Mph of a Pontiac powered car 6.23@222 mph if I remember correct.

I dialed in the wheelies bars on the FED, left straight but popped (we think) a headgasket. Not bad for it's first time out with a new combo.

By daughter had a blast and wants either a 62 or 64 Catalina to tow HER Jr dragster, I have created a monster!!

She got the royal treatment, hanging in the PY trailer, riding in the tow vehicle for Spotts, waiting at the line when he launched.

We even hung around with Arnie "the farmer" for a bit.

Now we just need to catch up on some sleep.

Here is a link to the 7.13 run, there was alot more drama from the box view!!

He is in the far lane.

Had a crazy day at Atco Phila Modifers race last weekend.

There were some wrecks early so after winning in the second round, they went round robin which was brutal.

Between packing the chute, unstrapping and strapping in the driver, towing to the lanes etc etc it usually takes 20 minutes easy.

We ended up turning [size=150]4[/size] rounds in under an hour!!!

We ened up leaving Paul in the car, stuffing the chute in his lap,towing back then packed it in the staging lanes.

At one point we were about to run out of fuel so here I go sprinting to the trailer and running back with a 5 gallon fuel jug on my shoulder. Get to the car, forgot the damn filler. I start yelling for a knife, some guy hands me his pocket knife, I cut the end off a water bottle, instant funnel.

We were all wipped out at the ended on the day, many people came up saying they could not believe we made the call each round.

We broke out running a 7.28 on a 7.30 dial , just missing the semis. Mad

Oh, my 13 year old daughter, got to warm up the car. Should have seen her jump when it lit off and the zoomie sprayed alcohol/flames over her head. Number 8 went out.

I asked if she was scared, " nope, I am getting one of these when i"m 16. "

Lord what have I done!! Wink

Here is setting the timing for the first run on a new combo/tune. Was way rich, went 8.08 on 7 cylinders.
Paul is in the black shorts, buddy Kevin in the white shorts, daughter Ali in the cockpit and me in the black jeans.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAp3-Tdl0Xw&NR=1

Hers is our one and only time run, again way rich

Watch the vega wagon launch, got him at the stripe

Sorry , it seemed to be beat up on Chevy wagon day :mrgreen:
