I'm in. 57grams. 2 cars. I can host and do two different heights on my track. You can schedule it around the LJLRC weekend and that will cover two weeks if you want. We can't do a double at the club but if I do two and the club does one it'll be three for the price of two. 


For those that will ask...Smitty can approve or deny....its his series!

we have [4] potential hosts... if we all run double headers [dadvbal and the johnnies want a triple] would be 9 heets... how many do we want ? . IMO. more the merrier....

we must decide if the hosts want to run Saturday & Sunday heets [1 weekend]...

or 2 consecutive  weekends  ? ............ let me know, I will post it...


  • I could run a doublr header in a weekend, Smitty...one track on Saturday, the other on Sunday — 72_Chevy_C10

 I got a '66 Ford Fairlane 4dr sedan. Could you push up the cut off year by 2? If not it's ok I'm sure I've got something around here. Count me in either way.

I found the '57 C I was thinking about... oops, I cut the roof of to make it a convertible a year ago... ouch...IT WAS A REDLINE...

redline base ...

C10, do you want it anyway ?


  • That's okay, Smitty...I have some Tri-5's around here...thanks though! — 72_Chevy_C10
  • I just really liked the crusty patina on that ebay '57...it sold for $7.00!! — 72_Chevy_C10
  • $7.00 American ? — model40fan
  • Yeah, I would have given a couple bucks for the patina, but I guess some guys really wanted it! It was $7.00 plus shipping! — 72_Chevy_C10

I definitely have one car for this race already...sometimes the cars go together so easy...and then, there is 'trying to make a fast pickup truck'!
