No, didn't get either of the cars done. Just me and the "pit crew".

But the big Dodge Ram keeps on rolling. Rolled past Halsley this morning around 10am. Honked and waved, but I don't think CJ and Linda heard us. We did see a large white antenna, new stuff for the HAM kit? Spending the night in Yreaka Ca, Reno tomorrow.

Rolled into Sparks this afternoon. The Dodge is getting 15.5mpg. Not bad for what is basically a 3/4 ton crew cab. I am really getting annoyed with the kickdown and OD. I shouldn't have to floor it to pass semis on 2 lane roads. Vegas tomorrow.

Made it to Vegas last night. We'll be heading to the track later to pick up our bands.

Spent a few hours at the track. Only 2 slant cars are present. Over all attendence seems to be down this year.

After a disappointing trip to Vegas, I find out that they are stopping drag racing at the Monroe Speedway. Bummer, on the other hand I am going to be a grandpa again. So everything evens out.

I just about have the tail lights mounted on the '68 Demon. Some more fiddling around the they should be good to go.

Sorry to hear about your trip and your home track, but congrats on the new grandchild.

All the best,
Lou

I haven't done much with the cars in the past few months. I did spend a couple of weekends futzzing with the tail lights on the Duster. Nothing like aftermarket sheetmetal and bent up tail light brackets. You get everything lined up, and then you tighten up the bolts and it is off by 1/8", or the tail light gaskets don't seal, or ...

Anyway, I spent the day bending fuel line for the Dart. Just need another 5' of 3/8 steel line and the chassis is done. It would have been cheaper to order a 20' roll from Summit, then 5' lengths from NAPA.

I spent the weekend welding up holes in the engine compartment of the Dart. I bite the bullet and welded up the bulkhead connector hole. Now I will decide on wither to splice the old harness together or buy a wiring harness kit. They all seem over priced for what you get, especially Mopar specific ones. If I get a kit, should I get new switches or use the OEM ones, Hmmm, the single speed wiper switch is about kaput. I get really nervous going out of town when it may rain. Which around here, is about the end of September to the 4th of July.

I don't know when I will get back to the cars. The day job has me doing system updates and application updates fairly steadily until the end of October. A lot of weekends in the office for a while.
