Zappy, you only need to worry if we're playing cards for money - haha! 8)
Jack, thanks for remembering Tippy, he doesn't like to be left out. You should have heard him howling when we got back after the last round. The people in the stands could even hear him over all the noise and our neighbor's generator!! :oops: It was great to hang out with you and Sharon again and next time, don't forget to bring your hotdogs and hamburgers. :wink:
And Dave, perfect timing on the cart picture! Can't wait to see all the other great shots you took.

Nice pictures Jim, I like the one of Dave taking a picture of you. :mrgreen:
I have a good video of a certain someone having a temper tantrum when they saw the fireworks on the cart. :shock:

Darryl...contact ProZ and get him to hook you up with some "headlights" for that cart... it would just enhance the looks :wink:
Bullseye, I think you got it Billy. A little too much solid yellow, headlights would really finish the look. 8) 8)

I believe that events like the Marion County Nostalgia Funny Car Nationals are proof positive that the "old skool" Floppers do have their rightful place in drag racing -- (yeah, I know, I know, I've been saying this for many, many years, but it's the GOD-HONEST TRUTH!!)... There's nothing wrong with using the "N" word (Nostalgia) when promoting events like this one-- Lots of folks are hungry to see and experience "Nostalgia" themed racing events... One thing that I'm extremely proud of, is the way many of the Nostalgia Funny Car race teams have the ability to all work together with a sense of unity-- It's so good and refreshing to see the different teams who run all the different racing "combinations" getting along so well, and working together for the common goal of moving the N/FC movement forward-- Injected Alky teams, Blown Alky teams, Blown Nitro teams, all showing each other respect and exhibiting good sportsmanship towards their fellow racers-- I believe that's a big reason why the whole movement can enjoy the kind of success that was this past weekend's Marion County event... There's no room in this movement for blowhard hostility and spite-- that only results in disaster... When everybody behaves with mutual respect and integrity, that's when you get the kind of admirable results that you had at Marion County... It's also groovy that the Gassers, Fuelers, Altereds, Doorcars, and other Nostalgia themed race machinery were all in healthy supply at this event (variety helps keep the show interesting for the fans and provides an honest perspective of what it was really like back in the "old days")... I commend the promoter, track, racers, sponsors, media, and fans for making the Marion event one of the more positive events in this ongoing Nostalgia drag racing movement... Stick with it-- It can only get better with time... "The Doc" (Celebrity Drag Racing Authority & Visionary)...
