      Sometimes life just gets in the way of things.

      That, or maybe the F stands for Forgotten...

              Re: F Bomb

              I 've seen the F Bomb a bunch of times either at the storage warehouse next to the Automobile Driving Musuem, or at the HRM shop. The car some teething issues with the Nelson engine fuel delivery and some other crap. It looks like its getting work done on it, albiet very slowly. DF let it it sit at the.cjtv offices after balding the drag radials for sound for the F&F 4 movie. Then it sat at Nelson's untouched for two years as a business card for them.

              Then it headed back to hrm offices when they moved to El Segundo.

              Why it is being mostly ignored is a question for him. It seems to falling into the same fate as his Super Bee for the same reason. The car really isnt that streetable because of its issues and he is ignoring for the cars that he can get in and drive.

                    I dont know that for sure, but the car came back without him driving it anymore than before he took it there. David did get two free years of storage for it. When cjtv folded up he had 42 cars and 8 ran. He was scrambling to unload two dozen non-running cars in a bad economy. I guess he jumped at them keeping it indoors for him for free.

                      It was advertising for them, they did him no favor.......

                        As advertising for Nelson, it didn't do much. It would've done WAY more for him from an advertising perspective if it was driveable, vs. sitting around.

                        All needed was a fuel pickup or something right?

                          I think the point was that his life may have been pretty dang hectic at the time, and 2 years of safe, free storage for "one of" your cars was likely a good thing when that car isn't your top priority.

                          To many of us, that car would be our most prized possession... It truly is an amazing car. To DF, I'm sure it's special - but maybe it's just another car.

                            It is hard to focus on a car when you so many. I wonder happened what happened to his 73 stepside. He also had the 78 camaro with the erod LS engine., the crusher camaro, super bee, 67 impala convert, jeep scrambler rock crawler, two flat fendered jeeps, a total crapbox 68 charger and a buick skylark convert, and now it looks like he bought a Cuda.

                              I saw it run at the track, as a bystander of course, what they were calling a fuel pickup problem - seemed more to me like a ignition problem as they turned up the boost. I saw the video and the tach went crazy which is usually a dead giveaway.

                              I'd love to rewire that car, get it sorted out, and see what it'll do turned up. Maybe some day!

                              (At the same event CDMBill's car ran like a tenth slower in the other lane on the same pass as the F-bomb's fastest. Naturally aspirated on pump gas ;-) )
