GT/CS vs. 55 Chevy

Nothing sweeter than beating a Chevy. He beat me off the line, but I got him on the big end.

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

Yeah, that was fun. I didn't spray in first gear on that run and this was my first run launching at 3500 RPM.

Good job Joe! Sorry I couldn't make it.

My GT/CS was my first car, still have it 43 years later. Paid $800. Featured in the May 1998 issue of Mustang Illustrated.

David, not to put any additional pressure on you but we're all counting on you to uphold the honor of the '68s!

We need a good photographer and camera person to take lots of photos and video of our races. Any volunteers?

this is going to be a tough race...i am now the underdog here...joe's car is a little bit faster...all i can say is i will try my best and i hope my car runs well and i'll need to pull a 1.68 or better 60' time which is really tough to do consistently

joe, im going to ask my aunt to video the race, but it would be great if those guys from motorgen are going to be out there..cuz their videos are great

With your photography skills, Tim, it sure would be good to see you photograph this event. You could come stay at my humble abode.
