    IF I leave my Car just like last year is it legal in SB/NA? I dont know what a quick release front end is. Dave you saw the two pins that take the place of two core support bolts but it still has the 6 bolts at the A-Piller it came with. Its not any quicker than taling out two bolts at the core support, I need to know if it is I will just weld on two frame horns and put two bolts in,,,, or weld it up which ever you like

      I am also waiting with bated breath for the answer to #1. Bill, for #4 unless that rule has changed, the interior only has to be upholstered. I ran with a guy in 2007 who had no back seat, but had carpeted the entire rear seat area, and this was deemed legal.

        I think with the Power Tour going on we may not hear for a week. At least I think its going on now.

          Power Tour doesn't start until June 4, according to the HR web site. They might be on a magazine deadline or something.

            True dat. I talked to DF hisself yesterday and they are on deadline for the book and have an incomprehensible six page spread sheet of actions for the HRPT, but they are in close consultation on the rules issues and will respond soon. HRPT is still a week away as I should have known.

            BTW, the new SIM digs are impressive and worth a visit of you ever happen to be in LALA Land and can arrange a walk through the double airlock.

                    David,

                    Can ProStreet use a Mustang II suspension if bolted to the factory frame at the factory position? I am just looking to move the spindle inboard a couple inches on the Marauder. It already has coilover as factory equipment but Ford moved the spindle outboard 2 inches in 03.

                        I am wondering about running A/FX with my 63 Fairlane, the car is nose up with stock front suspention and slapper bars out back. It has a 302 bassed engine. If I am allowed to run A/FX will add some lettering. I will change wheels to slot front runners and steelies out back.



                        Tow bar brackets from way back

                        Here is how the car looked in the 60's at times running lower FX's classes when it did not fit into stock

                        Is this more the look intended? This was with the wheel wells cut out, they have since been patched. Would this make the car fit in the class?

                            Man, there is something about a real back in the day car, now updated instead of being a newly minted 'tribute".

                            It'll be interesting to see what makes the cut.

                              Whoo hoo! Glad you made it.

                              I don't think it's any problem having someone stay at your hotel room as long as they are not helping you compete. Anybody I know?

                              Talked to Dan at the pool last Sunday and the Edsel will not be there and his Comet caught fire and burnt the engine bay. Seems his dad decided to take a job and go back to work. Oh well, I can't wait!
