Bakersfield NHRA reunion. Anyone Going?
« on: October 16, 2011, 11:10:02 am »
Well I'm about ready to head out to Bakersfield Raceway for the NHRA Reunion to re Unite the Cobra Jet with the Raceway that it pounded the asphalt 42 years ago. Late nights and finally have new rubber under the car, Charging system problems, Rev limiters and the old Sun tach still works after a tach adapter was wired in. 3,800 miles from FL . Hope to meet someone that remembers the car. Hubert Platt and Gas Ronda , Butch Leahl will be there as many more racers , Anyone coming please stop by and say hello. Starts on the 21st and ends on the 24th. Cars ready to pop some wheelies ;D. Photos will be posted when I get time at the room at night or when I get back.

Sure wish I could be there David.. can't wait to see and hear it in person. As always, any forum members coming thru KC better pm or email me in advance so I can meet you and share some great BBQ and a beer or two! I am 5 minutes from I-70 just a little east of KC.

Bob, Going up to I-40 and then straight across. going to leave Tuesday morning. Had a fuel presure problem today so I put a Holley pump on it. I just had the original Stewart Warner pump rebuilt.

     Just looked at where your leaving from. Looks like you're doing your own Cannonball run.;D Drive carefully.
