  • Well I pulled the plug on mine yesterday

    Well I pulled the plug on mine yesterday, crank sensor issues and everyone is out of time and days off just took to long for me to wire in the new EFI

    We will be taking a DD car to watch everyone else tear stuff up. Hope there is time to get a Tee Shirt still

        Bummer
        That leaves more time to pick your brain.... glad you're going to be there regardless of what you'll be driving.
        There's always something new to learn.

          WHAT!?! Is this a late "April fools" joke? Doc and "Neil Peart"** both out? Mega bummer, Man!


          **Yes, some of us have figured out that "McConnell" is really a thinly-disguised Neil Peart from that famous Canadian rock triad, Rush . . .

              RUMOR: Hot Rod is renaming the Daily Driver class the "Holding-My-Spot-in-Next-Year's-Queue-Because-My-Primary-Car's-Not-Ready" class.

              (The SIM "cube hivers-in-charge" apparently rejected a renaming proposal from New York . . . . the "Only-Class-at-Drag-Week-With-Real-Racing" . . . . )

                    The skeptic in me suggests there may be some leg-pulling here from those jokers in KC . . . .

                    Or perhaps there's an evil "sand bagger" scheme afoot to deprive 1956NY150 of his "real racing" class win . . . .

                    (Which, BTW, according to the 2013 Rules, will result in the award of a Hot Rod Drag Week (tm) class winner jacket http://www.hotrod.com/dragweek/1308_...ag_week_rules/ )

                            I am sure you put the plug back in, then pulled it out, then back in until you were finished.

                              I will piddle till time to leave. I do want to thank Geek for coming in for his Labor Day Vacation another year. I want to go on record for what ever you hear it is nothing he did I just was not ready when he got here and wasted all the time still wiring the car. We ran into a crank signal problem and no good way to diag. it. Put the car together in my new barn using a gen for power and one florescent light this year.

                              Doc and I will be in his 67 Camaro with a LS engine in it. I am looking forwards to meeting more guys and seeing their cars this year.
