cool pics. how was the weather?
Yesterday was fantastic, sunshine all day. Started to rain about 9pm and didn't stop until 10 (ish) this morning. Thought I had p****d myself last night, but thank god it was my leaking tent :), spent an hour sitting in the car with the heaters on full blast to dry my socks and trainers out :(. It had stopped raining and they opened the track at around 11:45, but the wind was very cold, but had a good time, met up with some RnS'ers some I knew and some I do now, you know who you are and had a blast.

Cheers,

Stu.

Who's is the blue chevelle? Saw it at juke box fair at brighton. Blurry nice car!
No Idea, saw it, love it, snapped it :tup:

It was better from the front, but everytime I went to get a picture someone had to have a gander at the motor. :sniff: But if he comes and puts it on my drive I wouldn't argue :pmsl:

Cheers,

Stu.

A great two days for me, good to catch up with you Stu...and many others.

I ran a NPB of [email protected] yesterday. :tup:

A combination of skill and luck saw me through to the final of NSCC eliminations today where I met Ed Gasket (Shaun Wilson).

An excellent race saw Shaun win by 0.0415 seconds...yep 0.0415!!

His NPB of 12.22 (ironic?) @112.94 covering my [email protected]

I'm thinking there may be an 11 in the coupe...maybe if I replace my Edelbrock v/s 600 with the Holley 650 d/p kicking about in the garage I can find it.

It's possible that fiddling about with timing and a tune of the existing carb, improvements can be found.

If we can figure out how to upload it, Deb has a video of me on her Blackberry.

Dusty,

Well done on a great weekend.

I take it that was Shaun's revenge for beating him yesterday :pmsl:

We missed it as Travis was shivering so much we decided to call it a day.

Cheers,

Stu.

Any more pics and details of this. Looks wicked!
Yes, belongs to Eric, chassis was built by Andy Robinson in 1996, but car sat around without turning a wheel, car was updated & finished as a turn key Project last year by Andy.

Eric is a real nice guy, we went side by side last year at the pod, gave my arse a good kicking, I did have problem, still I would of struggled if all had been OK

Heres a link to youtube from the Mopar Nats last year
Think Eric PB was around 8.3-8.4/155mph, he may of improved on that time by now
