    We made it home safe and sound from the banzai run to NC.

    Not CRAZY at all, maybe a little wacko, but guaranteed fun Road Trip!!

    Also, we want pictures of you relearning......

    Funny thing, the song "Wipe Out" just started playing, be safe......

    Let's hope it has stood the test of time better than the student!

    Thanks. This one is for me not the grandkids! It's the bike that I learned how to ride on.

    Same here, pondering how crappy the weather is. Normally we’re still cruising until about Thanksgiving, not this year.

    Pondering if we are going to have a long cold winter. Highs in the 30s and its only October. Two days after it was in the 80s today.

    Well before I became a family man many years ago I drove my Big Block Nova 4-speed with a Hurst Vertical Gate shifter everywhere, ran flat 12's in the Quarter with a tire equivalent to say a M/T street strip tire. Yes it does take a little tinkering.

    Pondering how it will be 90* today when fall started a week ago. That's Kansas for you. 70 tomorrow. Two new tires new wipers and filled oil and ps fluid. Will see if car can make it across town and back. Gotta put gas in it. Cleaned a couple years worth of leaves out of the bed last night. Downtown car show is today in the park next to the court house.

    Slicks make a big difference. I bought used ones and ran them for a couple of years then sold them. Look for a used pair mounted on rims already. My orange R/T with a mild 440 dropped from 13.30’s to 12.60’s with slicks. Hopped up 340 Dart GTS went from 12.51 to 11.90’s.

    Well, in street trim - it isn't good! It doesn't hook at all with 60s in the low 2s. Quarter in the low 12s high 11s.
    I have always wanted to put some slicks on it and see how much that helped but its a bit pricey for a few runs and a bragging point that will either disappointment me or make others think I am lying.

    Also, be careful what you wish for. There is a LOT of maintenance associated with making decent power on the street in a vehicle that you actually drive places.

    The compression sleeve. I got two new ones at ace hardware for $.50 A lot better than buying a whole new kit for ten dollars. Like when I bought a whole set of crank keys just to get the two that I needed. Found the receipt and that was four years ago already! Time flies.
