Re: You know current racing is boring when....

Attended a drag race a few years ago as the brand I sold was a major NHRA sponsor. We got the royal treatment, including getting very up close and personal. The girl's expression in the picture says it all. The sound vibration from these cars will loosen your fillings. :o

Re: Il Giro di Phoenix

The spoiler is a one-off of my own design. the original one I made was for my 70 and it didn't have the cut-out in the middle. I modified it to push air into the underbumper grill. The car also has one-off rockers and rear quarter rockers. Not just for looks....they actually work. 1032.JPG 997.JPG 1...

Re: Il Giro di Phoenix

Once again, John and I went rogue and headed off on our own. We tried to tempt others to follow suit but none bought in. Turned out to be a nice warm day for the drive to Saguaro lake.

It's that time of year ago for this annual event. Go to Phoenix sister city website to register. John and I did a different format last year that involved a drive to the country rather than the usual scavenge hunt. Will do something similar this year.

Re: Loud Backfire and then Silence

The first thing I would have check was the timing belt. A 72 is an interference motor. I hope you are correct about it being an electrical issue
