Hope you know I am just ribbing you ?  Pictures of the guys are just great.  Judging by the attire the weather must be pretty good ?  Hoping we will be seeing some pictures of the 428 cars in attendance ?  Brian

Former CJ engineers Dominic and Bruce talking about early heads for the winternationals.

Fantastic story. They should have wrote a book about it!

We saw it all at the 50th - hundreds of feet of gorgeous Cobra Jets side by side in the tent areas with many more in the pits waiting to run down the dragstrip. The event was well organized and I would like to be the first to congratulate Danny Truitt for having the imagination and the desire to make it happen. The CJ site (Scott Hollenbeck and Chris Teeling) promoted the event and made us all feel a part of the celebration. Thanks also to the many who traveled long distances to share their car and their memories.
Let's support the sponsors (like Ford Motor Co.) so there is a 60th!
