    cant seem to find it again, but if that was the same car--impressive.
    most impressive.
    Yeah the video is still on my YouTube. Mmhotrod41. I am over geared for the quarter. I built the car for 100-200 ft drags being we don't have a dragstrip. But at this point we have nothing again. If I put the 456 gears back in the rear I should be into the 11's again. Thanks for the compliments.

    This is the link. Go to 14:50 and thats the run against the Henry J that I cherished.

    Hey Mario that link was great! Cool match up between you and the Henry J!

    Also that was you loading the car on the trailer later in the video, correct?


    You stated " I could do a build thread abbreviated version of course." .... I think you should do one for us!

    Well I guess this is as good a place to start as any. On the evening of September 29th 2002 I got a flat tire right before an overpass which made it too late to go off the road for cover. I had to go up the overpass hill ever so delicately due to the tire down with posi and 456 gears. It was a crawl up the bridge without tearing everything all up. I kept looking in my rear view for cars coming at me and boy was I nervous.

    I finally got up on the bridge and went over to the right side on and off shoulder because I was scared to death to crawl down the bridge without getting plowed from behind. The bridge spanned over 10 lanes of roadway and I stopped the car at about lane 7 to give cars room to get on and off the roadway.

    As I called my wife to pick me up I turned off the key so I could hear her better and I watched a car come up the ramp from down below the bridge and make his way around to the top and saw his headlights coming in my mirror. They just slightly slanted left and then bang, he hit me and turned me over shoving me along the pavement about 20 feet. I couldn't believe what just happened to me. My son was in the car with me and he was hanging from his lap belt in his seat above me.

    I smelled gas and urged him to hurry and get out of his lap belt but I was in his way of getting out. I had to get out first and the door was pinched closed. I went through the window and my son came out right behind. I gave him the biggest hug ever and asked him if he was ok.

    And this is the start of my 1935 Chevy resurrection thread.

    wow..........good thing you are both alright.
    that really REALLY sucks that happened, but
    the important thing is that you are both alright.

    cars can be fixed or replaced.

    yeah youre right. It could really have gone bad as the impact sheared the gas tank cap off and the gas just funneled out all over when we were on our side.

    Yeah Vall. Any other night it would have been a Camry or a Nissan or a Volkswagen. Just a real fluke that a car guy hit me.
