That El Mirage dust will go where it can, hopefully not inside the car this time around. rolleyes

My choice would be the third-from-last -- but taken from the left REAR corner, and with good lighting.  I like the altitude at which you held the camera.  And the photo will be even better taken at EM -- not so much clutter in the background.  But then -- I've got my reasons for choosing, as you know.

No matter where you hold the camera, and no matter what the background or the lighting -- it's still a bomb-looking car.  Congratulations on building such a vehicle.

Do the foto with a white building, blank wall and a driveway as the foreground and background. I like the last shot. It will probably

not get too dirty at Elmo before the foto.

If u would like, I'd be happy to do some shots for u on the salt.

Slim, that comment a few posts back about BOMB - looking is probably an ill -chosen description as others in the family have a propensity for bomb-making

This happened right in front of us at Vegas. Arly is never boring, I have seen a few of his runs from the timing stand at the lakes. I remember when he hit a battery at El Mirage in Liggett's lakester.
Yeah it got everyone's attention. Arly was pretty calm and was worried about the car. rolleyes

Yrs truly meant nothing malicious in posting that picture, by the way. We all would LOVE to see that 200mph club member/drag race  veteran do well . It has become so incredibly expensive and complicated. I'd love to see single mag, single pump, no clutch management in Top Fuel.

Don't feel bad, my best buddy's A/Fuel Dragster ran in the 14 second bracket last time out and he's been doing the class since '91 or so. He drove the "Run of the Year " car in '92.

This ongoing fireball show, with Arlie pushing the pedal, is all made possible by his tuner: Jay Roach.

Not everything that Arlie drive gernades, but most everything that Jay tunes does.

He is a PhD in turning money and parts into noise and flames.

Thanks for the picture, haven't seen the new non paint scheme.  Oh and since you know my name, what is yours. wink

 Arley has the car and Jay the engines. Most of the parts that they have needed and now have are from Chuck Worshim's
funny car operation. clutch-timers-release and set up -ect. Of course threre's always something. At Vegas, Worshims pushrods
were to long so some shorter not as strong ones were used and they collapsed and the usual grenade.

Arley has driven for years and I am confident he has great skills. He has done well on the salt.

It's a shame that his drag race history includes a sterotype related to oil downs.
