what to do when you don't have a car...

Postby greenracing » Wed May 21, 2014 8:54 am

Since I don't have a Prefect replacement yet I'm going to be helping out on Steve Duber's new (to him) 41 Willys.

It's a McAmis chassis with a 496 Brad-headed hemi. The current goal is to run the NDRL 7.0 index class and some local quick 8's. The car's capable of way more than that, but we figure turned down it should be a nice reliable ride.

We fired it for the first time last weekend. I've got a couple bars to add to the cage to help with seatbelt location and have to make a tow hook of some sort, then we're ready to go.

We hope to be at Quaker this Sunday (5/25) for their nostalgia event / Great Lakes Funny Car Nationals to make a few shakedown passes. We'll be sure to pack a few extra sets of depends for the driver :shock:

We'll see some of you at Quaker.

We decided not to run the car - too much going on at that event to be running shakedown passes. But I'll be there, probably with the youngest crew chief. We'll look for you Wheelz - I'm assuming you'll be around that gold Mustang somewhere. :)

Yep, I think Rock has adopted Sharon as his female crew member???? I hope Bandit can make it too. See you Perry. Where's the oldest crew chief? In school? :D

Oh I forgot Heidi is the official female crew member but Sharon is just an honorary member. :D

Wow and BP's coming over too! You guys may have to introduce me to him again, it's been a while :lol:

Wheelz - Oldest crew chief may be around, but he's talking about going back to PA to hang out with some of his college gang for the weekend. Second oldest crew chief has to work on Sunday. That leaves me with the youngest, whom you will probably mistake for one of the older ones when you see him.

And I'm going to stay clear of the argument over who's the female crew member... :roll:

Thanks guys. I will be driving up on Sunday morning with Jack Redd in tow! Called Denny last night and got the word on it being a Sunday race. ( I was ready to drive up in the morning -- would have been quite a surprise!) I will have to leave early morn on Monday as I have folks coming over at 2 pm. Will be a whirlwind! But will be great to see you all. I will get a room at the alliance comfort inn or super 8. Whatever us available. See you there! bp

I have all my duties done except mowing the yard today and we are ready to head out. Looks to be a beautiful day
with old friends coming together. Doesn't get any better than that. I'm going to be looking for a tall skinny guy that
looks like half of BP... er excuse me bp. :D
