Thanks for all the help

Post  Cave Man on Mon 09 Mar 2009, 12:09 pm

As you all know my ride was broken most of the weekend. Thanks to all those who helped me to get it all sorted out. Too many to list because most of you all at one time or another offered to help or let me use parts off off your car (even OS affraid ) to get the Rocket home under its own power.

Fluff even offered to put it on his trailer and drive his car the 3.5 hrs home.

I changed the carbs back to the Dells, and got the Alternator installed, and all is good now.

And yes the next race it attends it will be on a trailer Shocked Rolling Eyes .

Cave, that Toyota you were talkin' about buying after gettin' rid of all the VWs (yea, I caught Cave at that point..) would make a good tow vehicle. Yep, when you put em on the drag strip, sometimes they don't make it home, except on a hook. Wink

Sorry I was a little bent out of shape there at that very moment. Ill be keeping the 62 and Im gonna get rid of the 67. And will be using the Chebby that I own, and my oldest son drives, to tow and will use a trailer that a friend has. May even trade him out of it and have one of my own.
