Pumpkin at the Strip

My home track is Mission Raceway Park NHRA division 6 in Mission BC CDN. We have a great Friday Night Street Legal program there sponsered by Mopac Auto Supply.

I have to admit the first year I was a bit of a jack -ss could not get Pumpkin to go faster then 13.91 @ 109 mph.

However with a few mod's and a couple of tips from from some forum member I did a little better and managed to make a fast C5 fast list.Photo by Larry.

Few more tricks for the track

My buddy Derrek and I set out to install MSD 2-Step, Shift Light and TCI Roll Control. Due to some un-forseen issues we were only able to get the MSD Shift light operational. Next year the will all be working for some visits to the track.

Looking good bud!!!!

How did you manage to drive your car to the dealer from the train yard??? I want in on that secret!!!

By the way, thanks for the hook up with Doug at Preston. He came threw and gave me the best price over any other dealer including Carters who my family has been dealing with for 20+ years and have bought 30 cars from!!!

Going to place order in the New Year. Can't wait

My car was stuck in Area 51 for 60 days. I knew it was in Anninacis Isle before the dealer did. They were not willing two call my bluff when I told them to deliver it by June 30th or keep it.

Pumpkin's 1st Show n Shine

Put Pumpkin in the first Show n Shine September of 09. Big hit, at the time there were not a whole lot of 2010 Camaro's around. It was a fun day , but very long. Full time job just watching and keeping peoples paw's off it.

Dinner with Scott

One of the weekends highlights was dinner with Scott the night before the show. My good buddy Gene had his car signed by Scott that night. As well some cool photo opp's. (BTW Colleen hates my shirt)
