Now, how does one get a 'title' and whatever that communication meme bubble thingy is by the avatar picture? I have no idea what the 'FNG' is below my pic.

However, I have always wanted to make a run down to Key West and ran across you guys. No guarantee I will do it this year, BUT maybe. About how many cars do you or have you had running down there? Hank
            Hello Hank
            I am keeping an informal list of folks - how many in your group?
            Are you thinking of joining us for the barbecue on Saturday?

              • Alrighty then, Thanks for the Hello(s) and Welcome(s). I see how this is, nice crowd, being the 'FNG', but I'll get over it. Not my first Rodeo, or something like that.

                Wagon Master - you can put me on the maybe list. It would probably be just me and my 69 GTO cruise mobile. It needs more miles on its original Muncie. BBQ, sure, if I go, kinda depends where. I am supposed to be fishing on Lake Ontario the week before, but with the latest virus restrictions in NY, that is out. I'm also supposed to be re-wiring my 65 GTO so I and son can put her new engine/4 spd in, to get her ready for some 1/4 mile action this summer. Soooo, at least a week doing Key West, (probably our only Texas week of spring weather), I'm not sure at this time. I will keep checking and thinking and will certainly let ya'll know. Also have 2 great-grandsons due this month, so, busy, busy, busy as we all are.

                    • Blue Cooler, yes, I just happen to have some pics. Now, before any Pontiac 'Purists' start my FNG trip under the Bangshift bus, this 65 GTO is about 1 1/2 years new to me (and co-racer son). Nothing was original concerning the drivetrain, perfect for our plans. It is an original 'P' code Iris Mist GTO (PHS documentation, we know, 1 year ONLY COLOR) 4-speed car, but the mostly Butler Engine, 700R4, and Ford 4.11 9" Rearend were already in there, so it's not like we are trashing an original car. Engine newly gone through by us and our favorite engine builder (now dyno North of 500 HP and North of 600 ft/lbs Torque, we are happy), Headers recoated, new Syracuse Autogear bulletproof N-Case 4-speed, to be new American Autowire, to be new Classic Auto Air for cruising only (hey, it gets hot in Texas), replacing our pleasure test-n-tune Chevelle racer (to go back to the street after we work her over and a new big block setup). Pics include 1965 GTO move from son's place to mine and the Chevelle in her 'storage' wheels/tires move to my son's place for safe keeping. I hope the pics go through. Hank

                      • pretty f'n sweet there Hank - both of them and welcome aboard. Watching Fox News last night and seeing Texas opening up I think Power Tour should just pick 7 stops in Texas and let 'er rip.

                        • The sun is shining and our snow is gone, for now anyways. I think the roads and highways need a good rain to wash off the sand and salt yet. We've been racing ho scale slot cars during the winter. Loads of fun with friends.
                          We're so ready for a vacation, can't wait to see you guys.....

                              Looks to me like you are well over 50% capacity in the grandstands but your corner works seem to be well spaced!

                                I love your car but I really want a 65 GTO convertible. That's the car that Mom and Dad brought me home from the hospital in when I was born.
