    I'm on my way. It rained yesterday morning, but I'm sure the afternoon was great and the nitro cacklefest at 6pm was something to have seen and heard.
    Anyway, at least I can make it today. Last event of the year I'm sure.

      Nice, please post some pictures.The cacklefests' are always fun. I love smellin' that race fuel. They have a similar event here in Connecticut every year with the old drag cars that raced at Connecticut Dragway. Have fun!

            Beautiful weather, 1 1/2 hour ride each way...
            I have a Harley-Davidson V-Rod, but I love Ducati motorcycles! 20191124_131503.jpg
            Just one section of the parking lot
            20191124_132231.jpg
            I took a couple of pictures of some "other" brand cars...here's one, an early 60s Catalina 20191124_132140.jpg
            Tri-Power 20191124_132151.jpg
            68 GTX looks like a polished or chromed rear tail panel? 20191124_132341.jpg 20191124_132351.jpg
            I have come to appreciate the light weight and relative ease of building the mid-60s Nova II cars, and I think they look pretty menacing (forgive me)

            Nice Charger R/T. Paint looked great, had a purple-ish hue, like Iris Mist on my wife's GTO 20191124_133400.jpg

                  I've seen this BAD ASSED mid 60s Silver Plymouth Belvedere before!
                  :lowdown:Gen 2 HEMI, :lowdown:3 pedals! KICK ASS!!
                  Did I mention FOUR-TWENTY-SIX-HEMI?!

                  Local Houma racer/race team/Mopar car dealership.
                  Teuton family are local MOPAR legends! 20191124_141807.jpg
                  I wouldn't do this to a Viper if I had one...
                  There is just too many other "talents" a Viper possesses to tear one up, put a powerglide 2 speed auto in it, trash the interior, and make it strictly a 1320 track car. @vintage chromoly would be mortified! (I think...) 20191124_141814.jpg Quite a few accolades for going in a straight line-quickly!! 20191124_141826.jpg

                    The first (legal) quarter mile race I ever ran. 1978, LaPlace Dragway at 16 years old. Stock 71 Charger R/T 440 4bbl auto open:rolleyes:8 3/4, 3.23 R&P, AC, power steering and brakes...big Delta 60 Road Max tires (cheap local tire brand)...
                    So I pull up and stage, light goes green and I stand on it and just keep it floored.
                    Now I had been doing some street racing, and I probably managed low 15s to low 14s on the street? I ran a 15.6 that first time at LaPlace. My buddies were watching from the driver's side bleachers, and they said smoke was coming out of my car about the first half of the track. Well that was my ONE Delta 60 on the passenger side smoking the first 660 feet!
                    I got one of these for my Roadrunner, for old times' sake... 20191124_143443.jpg
                    Not my favorite body style, but the owner said it was "all original, numbers matching" 71 GTX 440 4bbl SlapStick auto...The interior bucket seats, dash, console EXACTLY like my 71 Charger R/T!
                    My Charger had BLACK dual snorkel air cleaner, but this GTX was orange???
                    I thought the orange air filter enclosure was 72 on?? 20191124_145415.jpg
                    And finally a few more of my beautiful V-Code. She's not perfect, but she is perfect for me, and getting better a little bit at a time! 20191124_145848.jpg 20191124_145902.jpg
