    Re: 173herd's got a trailer queen

    I ended up being one too on the way to Ames. Luckily due to the awesome help of the people I was running with and a GREAT Ford dealer, I was back on the road in time to make it to the venue. I'll post up the whole story and some pics later. I'm beat. ;D

      Mike - I'm sorry you need to rent a UHaul to carry the Chevy back to Texas... I wish you the best in the recovery and hope to see you on future PT...

        Bob, your troubles weren't due to the burnouts in Lincoln, were they?! :

          Nah, Linda, just a design flaw on that motor that Ford fixed the next year. ;D All is good now.

            Re: 173herd's got a trailer queen

            I was a Trailer Queen from Beatrice, NE to back home this year. Had to finish the tour in my 97 s-10 work truck. That makes the drives boring during the day. Nobody wants to look at a s-10 let alone wave at you and take pictures. But it was an awesome burnout on highway 36 at the Homes, KS BBQ that took her down. Now we will have to build a meaner engine! 8)

                      Good to hear Bruce. By the way, I kept seeing you all week but was always going somewhere and couldn't stop to blab. Maybe next year at the Autorama. ;D
