Anyone else planning on going? Check it out at

I'll be running D/G. Like I didn't already have a whole bunch of stuff to do to get ready, I decided to put on a Weiand scoop. That was a trick since the mounting bracket didn't fit my 1050 dominator...so we had to fab it to fit. Here's what my car looked like with the old hood:



Here's a shot with the scoop on. I'll be putting on a 2" cowl hood that I had laying around. And, tonight were cutting the opening. I'll post some more pics tomorrow night.



Tuesday, April 21 and the hood is cut...just need to box in the opening and paint it flat black. Should be done in time for Dragfest.

We'll be there with the Dart--my engine is in now, but it'll just have a 750 vac. sec. carb and a tight converter to slow things down. I think Dale might be concerned about high speed handling with a 40 year old Dodge van front axle with drum brakes!

The classes include all 72 and older with the exception of nostalgia gasser and traditional hot rod which are both 65 and older here's their class designations:

I think eventually they want to limit all classes to pre '65, but not this year.

No problem! Dial some more caster into it! Dale doesn't need to worry about brakes, with the long shutdown there!
