My friend Mart and I drove to Detroit (and back home) on Friday... in the rain. It was a cool time, driving through small towns and people lining the streets. Every stop was a car show. On Thursday in Muskegon I watched a bunch of the Dyno pulls. A real nice Chevelle made 1337 hp at the wheels, I've never seen drag radials grow like a fuel car before. All I can say is WOW, I'm looking forward to doing more legs of the tour next year. I have some pics on my phone I'll download.

Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.

I watched for a couple hours just north of the state line in Tennessee, and then went up to Nashville for the evening. There was a 52 Chevy pickup with Georgia plates, a 572 and blower dynoing around 600 hp...
Sorry, I'm not much on packing a camera. I'll be with yall one of these years!

I would like to go, but the route has been a bit too far East for me for the last several years.
