    Finished up the season with a semi final round showing at the NHRA Division 5 National Open in Kearney, Nebraska last weekend.

    Off season work begins right away. -Al

    This is a buddy from school. I was home on leave with no wheels and he drove my future wife and around. It wasn't made for 3 people so it was real cozy....that was good because he didn't have the top for it.

    He pulled the the 6 and the trans and replaced it with a 283 and 3 on the floor.

    Al- congrats on the good season

    Well....it had some peaks but also some pits.

    I squandered three opportunities to get deeper into the late rounds: in the quarter finals at Rock Falls, the quarter finals at Thunder Valley (that one hurt...would have been a bye in the semis to get to the final round ) and the semis at Kearney, Nebraska last weekend. Those three mistakes left several thousand dollars on the table. As tough as it is out there, those opportunities just don't come along very often, let alone three times in a season. Failing to capitalize on them exposed some areas that I need to address in order to improve.

    It's very similar to BR shooting....we're trying to be perfect in a game where's it's impossible.

    This was many.many moons ago.

    Al- I know there are ups and downs but you have the right attitude.....perseverance.

    It wasn't the ski season yet but we got a little snow the night before.

    Seems like an incredible bargain today, but then I remember that in 1969 I was making $535 a month as a project engineer for a major oil company. Shows how much the politicians have devalued our Dollar.

    Apart and making plans for the new season. Disassembly showed it was starting to hurt several lobes on the cam. This is an area we always keep an eye on as the square nose cam lobe profile, combined with the stout valve spring pressures, take their toll on the leading/trailing edges of the lobes.

    Good shootin'. -Al

    Two brother's from the Bay Area ran this car. We knew them so my son had a photo op. At the time he would back off when I fired up the Gasser ,so we moved him when they fired up the rail. He was fascinated by these cars and would slowly approach after they were running.
