Upcoming Rock runs?

I know toolbox wants to run his car.

I want to see if mine will still stay together (although I won't be gunning for a 12 second run this time).

Oct is pretty much useless for us but Nov/Dec has some openings:

Oh and my car is still radioless after 2 ****ing months. Found another possible parts car with a proper dash. Once I get that it's on like donkey kong.

Still won't paint it.

Who traded their bird in?

BTW for the record. Tbird dashes are ****ING HEAVY!!

Got my replacement dash this weekend after a few hours of fun in the sun. Carried it on my shoulder (airbag included) since I wasn't going to make my father help carry it 100+ yards across the junkyard and then to the van. Needless to say the guys working there gave me a cold beer when I was done. And only a few slices on the hands.

I might go sometime. Not this time.

But i do have a question. I have an automatic. Is it pointless to drag with an automatic?

automatics are alot more consistant for racing. as the saying goes "you cant out-shift an automatic".

Sigh. I wish I would have known Aaron. I could have put a real engine in it...

Importskyline22-All autos. It's worth coming out.
