I took my '67 to the F-body shootout at KCIR on Sat. Below is before/after suspension tweaks. Thanks to Dragfab for passing along some suspension suggestions.

Thanks for the compliments fellas.

Andy-Glad to meet you in person as well. You and I would be a good heads up race! I ended up winning the award for closest to 10.0 with a 10.005. I selected a T-shirt which reads: "My engine runs......N/A.....Naturally Asskicking".

Yesterday we had 1600' air, a headwind and then I later found today that the o-ring had squeezed out of my McClintic valve which mean't my vacuum pump was doing jack! I wondered where that 2 MPH I couldn't account for went!!! One of these days I'm gonna get a good DA day and a track with teeth on the same day! Hope to post up some other new bests later in the year.

Pic 938 thru 942 captures most of the launch/landing. Eric did a fine job on the photography.
