Bob and George are listed as TBD blog challenged walk ins.

I think George only has the one car and 'have you seen Bob E's cars....LOL"

Should net out at about 42 cars.

  

I'll send this to Bill Pinch so when you settle up with him (see rules) he will have the car count by owner list and then to Ralph Thorne for awards.

 

Ralph said he can do light colored T shirts with the cool 'Golden Commando' logo Floyd created ... about $20 + Shipping.  

 

This inspection line will stay open for posting of cars with place holders or walk-ins. Then it will become a readers choice pole ... award vote. Stay tuned.

 

This will be fun.

Thanks to all that are joining this year.

About the stock elim class for next year like I said somewhere in my rants is it out of the question to just raise the minimum weight of the cars to about 220g or something like that leaving G Bobs chevy still in the running because if Bill can build that hard body nova at 134g with a motor that weighs 35g lighter than a kemtron I'm sure you can build a hard body car that weighs less than 200 an extra 20g gives some room for detail then it can be an option if you want lexan or hardbody with lexan not being an advantage so much I also don't think it should be spec ratio not with motors that vary in voltage from 4v to 8v.

Don't try to bring them on a plane .... your cars will wind up on the 'no fly list'.

I don't know why but that just reminded me of my autoshop teacher and his antics. Mr. Birmingham, we called him 'Aunt B'.

What a great guy, good teacher.

 

Reminded me of how he would randomly connect and power up the Sun Distributor machine coil to the door knob after the bell would ring. If you got there late and grabbed that knob back down the hall you went. Oh yeah... I remember that well.

 

If he saw you smoking in the shop or out back he would take a bucket full of nasty water from the tire leak checking well, sneak up and yell 'fire' and throw that nastyass rusty water on us.

 

He drove a Land Rover to school daily and said he had a 70 LT1 Vette at home. As a senior he had 3 of us up to his rural house once, gave us beer, showed us his Vette and told many tall street racing tails. he was always 'teaching' us.

I remember standing in the door of that rickety old detached one car garage gaga over that car and he told us "garage floors are mostly level, always leave the car in neutral with the brake off. This way if you have a fire you can push or pull the car out and save it." IIRC he told us he learned that one the hard way.

 

He would love racing 36 volts. Heck, I wouldn't be at all surprised if he had. He was a teacher but he was a Punk.

 

A really good teacher like that would be in jail today ...

Floyd H.  drew that car 50 years ago in HS study hall.

What a Punk.

 

Ralph T. was convinced it was cut from an old slot mag.
