Me and S10 Greg did the True street thing this year.   I rode along.  A good time as always.
Lil truck is working well.  Drives nicely.   On thursday on the hottest day the truck didnt go over 180.   Friday and sat. it cruised at 160.     ;D   
I forgot how awesome the floor vents are in these things.   AHHHHHHH!

Truck bested 11.26@ 119.7   

We ended up last in our class.  11.50 class  [lol]      We just kept trying to go faster without adding any boost.
Any power adder will do.

I see Jimmer had the fastest time watching the replay. We did see him and some other gofast cars run while we were there. We left before it started raining

We also stopped by Walmart for Hot wheels event

 Good for Jimmer!  I worked with John Mayer last Thursday and he had a spot and was heading down Friday.   
 I had the '65 Skylark all cleaned up. We were heading south on 37, for Battle Creek, when rain started. We pulled off to put the top up. As we headed southeast, rain got worse and we noticed it was darker in the direction we were headed. Turned around, stopped at Red's and ate. Then went home. Cleaned the car, loaded up the Dakota with cooler, etc, then went to a party at a huge farm near Gun Lake. No rain there.

got a weather alert for Barry county when we were heading home around 4:00. When we got home sun was shinning and the roads were dry. Rained in Detroit after we left so we missed both storms.
