A bit of fun at a "car" party last Sunday. There was a concrete pad, some guys with a water hose, and my car has a line-lock. You can guess what happens next. Everyone was taking a turn at wrecking thier tires, so why not join the fun?

My two kids were in the back seat. Ages 7 and 11.

I'm pretty sure it will be a memory that they will remember forever....And that is precisely the reason that they were included in the adventure!

Thumbs up

Very cool pic!!!

I like how the Impala guy removed his hubcaps- Don't you know someone could be decapitated with a hubcap flying off at the race track!!! LOL!!!

Time?

Not fast enough....due to a stupid vacuum modulator that had the car shifting whenever the hell it wanted to....or maybe it wouldnt shift at all. Nothing like being stuck in first gear to kill your times.

Replaced the 15-dollar part the following Sunday, and all was well. "A day late and a dollar short" is how my luck usually runs.

Even with the functioning modulator, it's still not fast enough. But the money tree has already been picked clean for this season. We'll have to see what we can do about that NEXT year....


The 1960 Impala is my friend's car. He's never had hubcaps on it. It has a fairly stout 454 under the hood.

Thanks for the words of encouragement

My times are low 15s right now.

More-or-less stock '73 460, C6 trans., and 3.50 gears.

I was going to yank the engine in the Spring and have a local 429/460 guru add some snort, but a couple weeks ago I ended up having to buy a new daily driver instead.

All the car got this winter was an electric fan. Gonna just drive it next year while I pay off the new truck as quickly as possible.
