Rex, heck man I had to correct it as they are in my club. I had a spelling dictionary when I was engineering, spell check was still new when I retired, you remember the DOS system, man we came a long way since those days. How is the roadster coming and will you be at speed week in about 83 days. huh

Boy -- I think it would be hard to beat Teague, and the three-second (it seemed) shift into high gear.  I'll admit I'm prejudiced -- all the way back to the roadster doing sprint car things in the blowing dust of El Mirage.  Must be hard to walk around so bow-legged with those huge things in the way.

Glenn,
I will be there in August and will be driving my roadster. Trying to get it regestered right now but driving it with my son's 510 Datsun plate as it is not running right now.

Stan Back,
You are right about Al's car great to hear at the 5 mile but I don't think he ever ran 75% like Lindsley and Leggitt.

Rex

I haven't heard the Lindsey Leggit car make a run only in the pits.  Teague on the other hand was one smooth sounding engine from miles away.  Rex nice roadster.

Great sounds go with the speed, I have been so lucky over the years to time and see the many records set. Hoping yours will be on the list and record book this year.

The second place winner after Lindsley and Leggit has got to be anything ever belonging to Chauvin Emmons.  That man has never been afraid to "over tip the can".  Of course when you build your own heads, you can afford to melt a few now and then.  Now if he could only keep the car aimed at the finish line.............. grin

Nobody's done in one of the little restrooms since I've been on watch, and as for hitting a dike -- hey, this is a family forum.  Watch your sexual innuendos!

Some years back it was Gordon Hoyt that took out the crapper at Bonneville, Emmons hit the one at El Mirage right behind the timing trailer, he also went over the dyke on the salt. There are many old and funny things that have happened over the years.

Glen  -- I agree with you that they're funny in the telling -- after the fact that no one was killed.  I never understood what I heard was the SCTA's ruling to re-license him after he reportedly said he had the talent to "power out" of trouble.

That's the problem, if he thinks he can power out of a problem he is already in a loosing battle. evil

Loud sounding, thundering cars of the past:  Jerry Jones in the modified  roadster.

He was loud when thunder was still quiet.
