My daughter rode in the Javelin for the first time ever:

We went to a car show called the "Under Construction Show" for project cars.

Then at night I went to Portland International Raceway by myself for some 1/4 mile drag racing:

Where I ran into one of the clubs I've raced with and got in on their season-ending bracket race:

Whereupon I laid a beat-down in the first round:

I red-lit the semis (-.018!) but nailed my dial-in.

Drove ~135 miles, made 8 passes, and all I needed was a quart of oil, a screwdriver to adjust my headlight aim, and an air pressure gauge.

Today was good, really good.

I don't either. Probably have to be logged into the Google Overmind in order for them to show up.

That sounds kind of creepy stalker-ish.

There has to be balance. The day was so good that it used up all the good, so the image links are bad

That car is awesome.

I see Sgt. Shultz and a post card looking thing, but no car pictures...

Glad you had a really good day! We all need a win to keep us going.

Sounds like a great day, wish I could see the pictures!

I really like the "under construction" idea for a car show.

Dang, I forgot that show was this weekend.

Nice work putting some miles on the Jav!

Huh, the pictures are on my Google drive and set to public.

Maybe Knurled is right. I have not succumbed to Skynet so I'm not logged into the googles & I still can't see any more pics.

You'll need to log in to post.
