John,
Great to see that you and your check book are back at it!! Looking forward to the updates and the margaritas at Bville next year!

Rex

  It helps the check book when you reach the age  of mandatory withdrawal from retirement accounts grin

  Might have to get early payouts for next year to cover everything as a lot of parts got thrashed. Block is repaired but still need

  new cam and lifters,rods and pistons, some rocker stands, one head and some valves, oil pan and new sleeves.

  Cam and lifters are to be shipped on the 21st.

  Linda starts withdrawal next year but somehow I feel its Las Vegas time grin

  We took a trip to Vegas for Linda's Bday last month and had a great time grin

  Yeah Rex some of the best times are margaritas in comfort of back of trailer looking out when storming.

             JL222 cheers

  Planning on adding fairly large flap to spoiler for more down force

  We also have problem with panhard bar hitting on sheetmetal when springs are set as soft as we like so we had to adjust the

spring platform up to prevent  that happening,

 We have different bolt holes for bottom shock mounts and by going to top mount it will give more clearance and allow us to lower
platform for a lower spring rate and hopefully have the clearance we need.

  One year when track was good I was able to give more throttle than normal and I was thinking '' holy Sh.t shocked

                 JL222 cheers

Just read an interesting thought about the cost of racing. "The cost of racing has not increased over the last 20 years, it still takes every penny you have!" So true.

  Yeah...Don, and spending the whole weeks paycheck on a mag and catching hell grin

  But the hard part for todays youngsters to understand, is on 3 1/2 bucks an hr in 1963, we had a new house and Pontiac Gran Prix,still tough though being in construction.

  Sounds like we had similar lives, but I didn't run the gasser much.

  Hey Troy...forgot a pic of the new Crane pro roller lifters  grin

 Crane cam is made on special 9310 steel core with valve seat pressure at 352 lbs closed 811 llbs open. max rpm 8600. We'll never run that hi on purpose.

John, I was bored this evening so I got out my old Don Montgomerys Supercharged Gas Coupes book. I saw where Arley Langlo ran A/GS in 1961. Did he have a Willys or something else? I got a bunch of autographs in that book from the old gas racers like Cookie Cook and KS Pitman.
