He will get better as time goes on.

That Hawk looks good.

Thanks for posting The race against the Ford Cougar. I have to say that lining up the car, waiting for the staging lights and hitting the throddle is a heart pounding experience. Lots of Fun!

Here's the stats from the slip:

GT Hawk >>>> Cougar

R/T > .026 >>>> .106
60' > 2.400 >>>> 2.273
330' > 6.589 >>>> 6.535
1/8 > 10.002 >>>> 10.032
MPH > 72.34 >>>> 71.09
1000 > 12.936 >>>> 13.047
1/4 > 15.427 >>>> 15.590
MPH > 90.51 >>>> 88.93

It sure makes me think about building an 63 F Body or a HT just for events like this...Caroline's car might not get that driveline after all.

Hey Al , you make it home OK ?

No problems what-so-ever. We woke up late check out of our hotel by 11:00 am, bought some VR1 oil and 2 wix filters, went for the Rooti-tutti-fruity pancakes at the IHOP, Checked out a craft show, bought some liquor, stopped for some gas, supper in Port Huron (Tried to keep up to the local Sheriff for 8 miles, who was showing us where to eat), and got home at 11:00 PM. Fantastic trip!

Bob, I am kicking myself in the @ss for not buying that NOS TT that you had for sale. Had I known what i know now it would have been sold when you asked me.

Glad you had a good trip as well. It sure was a heart pounding blast!
