For the past few years, we have been running w/ the Southern Slingshots group, although not an actual member, they let us run as field filler, when they had low car count. They are a FED nostalgia group, and just got a new owner... Spoke w/ him today and... We are full fledged members now, they opened up the rules to allow period correct funny cars into the mix !! :mrgreen:

That is great! I worked with those guys a long time ago. Don't know if it's still the same membership but tell 'em hello for me anyway! bp

I'm home and still in one piece !! That was so much fun... I smell like spent Methanol and Testosterone, an excellent vintage !! I can see the appeal of the Front Engine Dragster now. I am honored that Carlo trusted me to bring his baby to life. Car has not run in 4 years, I had never seen it before, so we got a test light and figured out what all the switches do, primed the oil system, added fresh fuel, and Kaboom !! It sprang to life with a huge fireball... Fuel leaks and crossed plug wires... Not a good mix... Got it straightened out, and it runs good. Unable to drive due to split fuel line, but we made a parts list, and I will be back !! 😎
