Autorama bound...

...Renee has decided to enter the Foster/ Stevenson Special into the Sacramento Autorama coming up February 19-21. This is a huge show that fills all thirteen buildings of the Cal Expo Center, home of the CA state fair. 850 cars, all types and classes... With my son TJ's help, we began the process of detailing every part! Fortunately for us - Paul & Zach made for relatively little to do ;-)

Robert Campbell's carburetor fix was tested on the road and Wow!... Rob - my ego is at risk of being shattered! Renee and I were neck & neck at the last airport drag race! How do I put it back to the way it was??

Renee, Having had to "ride the lightning" before I could carry a tazer on duty, let me get in place with a video camera first. I have seen "Gorillas" turned into crying little babies while riding the lightning. LOL Can you say YouTube. Tim, unless you want to find yourself on YouTube crying like a kid having his Big Wheel taken away, I wouldn't do it. LOL Mike

Tim,
Sorry! NOT!! But we can spend money on your cars!! I would love to have Renee's car for a week! Just a little fine tuning here and there. What a beautiful car and it would be fun to make it purr like a kitten and roar like a lion!!!

How is T.J.'s "big cam" sounding? That engine has some real possibilities. I have an Edelbrock Perfromer RPM sitting on the shelf? But do I remember you already have an intake and carb for it?

Rob

Boy Tim, To think you would "light someone up" just because they are faster than you falls into the "CS" catagory if you ask me, and CS doesn't mean "California Special"!!!! LOL
Sorry Tim, I think you lose this one all the way around. LOL. Mike
ps. why don't you just introduce her to the difference in cubic inches and challenge her to a race using one of your big blocks.

Tim,

I'm pretty sure you could still beat me since you are a much better driver than I am, but it would be an interesting race

Rob, I would LOVE to have you "tweak" my car anytime! I'll pay you with a great meal (but I'll stay away from the BBQ ) So when are you going to make another trip down here???

Mike, you and I both know that I would NEVER do that to Tim, but we won't tell him that!!

...Hey Mike, I gotta' get in all I can while I can! With your big block winning all the shows - and your "goldie" bein' prepped to deliver the blows... That leaves only Renee (locally) for me to stay ahead of!

But here I sit outnumbered..... AGAIN! Rob's no darn help either!!

So Marty, A 351C eh?
I'll try, but I think Renee will have me there too!
;-)

P.S. Boy, you guys sure know how to derail a thread!!

Rob, TJ's car is running excellent, but we're leaving it 2-barrel until Spring. I have a rebuilt Holley (2v) to replace it's tired Autolite 2100, but am missing the plastic disc (bolted to linkage) that actuates the accelerator pump. Are they easy to find?

Okay, you're right. Back to the original topic..The Autorama.
