Re: 2010 Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival Sept 10-12

Thanks Mike. I really wonder sometimes why we do this stuff and if I can do any more. Then I finally get some seat time and poof, no more wondering. I still don't have a good way to describe it to those that haven't done it.

Re: 2010 Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival Sept 10-12

Wow. Where do I start? Whoever said you can't have the highs without knowing the lows was dead on. I had them both, and was lucky enough to have friends and fellow competitors help me through the lows, and celebrate the highs. Thurday: To the track, register, tech, set up camp. Met a photgrapher rav...

2010 Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival Sept 10-12

To anyone in the area or willing to make a trip: I plan on being there all weekend and looking for mid-pack. woohoo, but I'm way outclassed in the VSCDA structure. Look for the red #33 yard sign, I'll hopefully be along the main pit road at the bottom of the hill, across the street form corner 5. It...

Pictures for the mix

Hi Chris,
I finally have some pictures that may be worthy. How can I get them into the rotation? What are the specs you need?

Thanks. Love the new look!

SVRA Vintage Grand Prix of Mid Ohio 2010

Wow. I just had to make the race as Datsun was the featured marque. First race in over two years, and I was still preparing right up to the last moment. But I had conversed with Paul Kort and Dick Tillinger who were willing supporters, plus a bunch of WI roadsters were making the trek too, so I woul...

Doubt it Ron. We'll just be getting back from vacation, but more importantly I don't want it's track test to be a zillion miles away. Maybe a late summer trip "out" if things go well though.

Thanks Ron. Pretty flattering coming from you. A lot of details yet to attend to as Bill can attest, but little by little. It looks good enough if it goes by fast! I'll start with a well oiled engine next spring.

It's Alive!

Dateline: 8/27/2009 Franksville WI At approximately 11:40pm Thursday evening, the lengthy saga of the 1600 race engine BUILD came to a load, nasty, narley end with the crackle of a pushrod 12:1 1600 roaring to life.

Thanks Ron. Always a WIP! Glad to hear yours is back together after those barrels jumped out in front of you. You'll have to come a bit farther north though, to Road America to run with my crate. That would be cool though, just like the BSR team (circa 67 or 8?), a 1600 and a 2000 at the same time. ...
