Death once had a near Chuck experience.

When Alexander Bell invented the telephone, he had three missed calls from Chuck Norris.

My forth run is missing. At 39.948 it wasn't all that fast, but got me under the 40 second mark.

Some people wear Superman pajamas.....Superman wears Chuck Norris pajamas.

 I just wanted this out in the open so when my 2 student whip my butt tomorrow, you'll know it was meant to be. I think Confucius said it. Maybe Kung-Fu. Maybe I saw it in a fortune cookie.
82  General Category / Ask the Competition Committee / Re: Opinions on running by class on: April 26, 2016, 02:37:41 PM
This has been discussed at length in the past. It's the only way to take weather conditions out of the equation. Once the club went to a points system based on an index, I think it's the only fair way to run. I've run with clubs that would allow you to run outside of the heat assigned to your class, but if it gave you an advantage, your times were tossed.

  I have a contractor that "may" show up tomorrow to finish up some work at our new house. If he does, I probably won't make the event, but I'm going to try. Sorry for the late notice, but I really need to get this done.

I love all forms of motorsports. I've always held the opinion that it's all vehicular control, straight line, corners, water, whatever. Making corrections at 200mph plus, (at Englishtown, Bonneville, or Daytona), is something most of us will never do. I'm a real sucker for the LSR stuff, personally.

Like that video. Love the 2 car split at the 2:46 mark.
86  General / Open Forum / Re: Dyno Day on: February 25, 2016, 07:24:23 AM
 David, the Monza won't be there. Engine isn't ready, and if it was delivered to me today, I doubt I would have it installed in time. (ever gutted a bathroom?). Oddly, I was number 13 on the list, and that's the same number on the car. Well deserved, I might add. 666 may be a better number for it......

That's a great price on a great tire. If they were a little wider I'd buy them for my Camaro. Someone ought to snatch them up.
88  General / Open Forum / Re: Dyno Day on: February 10, 2016, 07:36:36 AM
Outside chance the Monza will be there. Many things left to do to it, and we're in the middle of moving into a new home, (what was I thinking???), so it's a long shot.

It's all fun and games until a chain comes off and wraps up a spindle. Still it's a motorsport I would watch!

 The Vega now resides in Hanover, PA. The buyer showed me some of his collection, including a dead ringer of Dan Gurney's old Trans-Am Cougar. The intentions for the Vega are to make a Vintage Dirt Modified out of it, to be used for shows and a few exhibition events. The buyer has the chassis from Bobby Allen's, Vega bodied modified, and plans to use this body on it.
91  General / Classifieds / Re: Chump car, Lemons racer, rat rod...... on: January 16, 2016, 08:51:07 PM
Nah. It likes the great outdoors. This poor little car never saw the inside of the garage, but my '73 Vega lives in there. So....I haven't freed up any room. I will be trying to sell my Monza IT/A car soon though. It lives in a trailer.
92  General / Classifieds / Re: Chump car, Lemons racer, rat rod...... on: January 16, 2016, 08:01:25 AM
It's official. Heading to Hanover PA next week to become a dirt modified. Darn sure beats hauling it off for scrap.
93  General / Classifieds / Re: Chump car, Lemons racer, rat rod...... on: January 15, 2016, 03:56:05 PM
Believe it or not......I think it's headed to PA to become a modified dirt car!
94  General / Classifieds / Re: Chump car, Lemons racer, rat rod...... on: January 15, 2016, 03:11:26 PM
It's like a Fiat except it rusts at a slightly slower rate. Or a slightly faster rate. I forgot. It could also be a Land Speed Record car, a dragster, a mini-stocker, a mud-bog vehicle, a rally, or rallycross car. The sky's the limit. You and Bernard have already put a GM engine in a Fiat, now put a Fiat engine in a GM product. Smiley

I'm selling a '75 Vega notchback. Pics are in Richmond CL, under "Chevy Vega". It's all there, but needs work. VERY negotiable on the posted price. Cosworth sway bars, KYB shocks, GT wheels.
96  General / Open Forum / Re: God is great, family is good, now I need the best body/repair shop in Richmond. on: January 14, 2016, 08:05:29 AM
 I'm glad everyone is okay. These days, almost all body shops follow the same protocol on repairs. They even have to, (according to a body man I know), make the welds weak enough that the "crumple zones" will crumple. I haven't needed a body shop in while, but I'll ask my nephew who worked for an auto paint company who he likes.
97  General / Open Forum / Re: media blasting in central va. on: October 25, 2015, 11:37:34 AM
I want to finish stripping the clearcoat from the roof of my old 4Runner. I've stripped everything I can, but the back of the top is a bit more detailed, and I keep gouging the fiberglass. Not a huge area, I spoke to a guy who uses a "wet" sand blast method, but he advised against it. His advice was to sand it, but where the clearcoat stuck, it STUCK! It's like sanding a mirror.
98  General / Open Forum / Re: media blasting in central va. on: October 23, 2015, 07:52:32 PM
No way, Justin. I've about got this retirement thing figured out, and don't want to screw it up by going back to working again.
99  General / Open Forum / Re: media blasting in central va. on: October 23, 2015, 07:15:30 AM
I've spoken with a couple of folks in Chesterfield who use a silica based media which they say is too aggressive. The soda blast method is shouldn't cause any damage. I'll do another search. Thanks for the replies.
100  General / Open Forum / media blasting in central va. on: October 22, 2015, 01:43:05 PM
 I am in need of some soda blasting on my old Toyota. I contacted Soda Blast in Oilville, but they can't get to me until the end of November. It's a small job, and my attempts to remove the paint/clear coat have caused more damage than I'd prefer. There was a guy in Chesterfield that did this stuff, but I can't find his number anymore.
