    Some of my parts are gonna be on pinks on May 5. I made some parts for my drag racing buddy at work. He's on a drag racing team that has a red 53 studebaker with a blown alcohol 540. I made a rear disc brake caliper bracket, valve cover nuts, and a fixture to drill the heads for an extra bolt hole. Too bad the car leaned out and burnt two pistons.

    It's gonna be one of those "all out" things with a 32 car field. I think he said they qualified 10th. Car runs 4.70-5.00's in the 1/8.

    Hey that sounds cool Ryan, I wish I would have pursued that from High School. Something I always wanted to do. Now I just have to sneak into the machine shop at work, and do stuff without getting caught.

    I found out yesterday that a friend of mine is registered for Pinks All Out on May 12th at Maple Grove PA. He has a mid 10sec Talon, street car. They'll probably pick something faster but hopefully he'll get some good exposure for his shop.
