PQ, if you weren't so huggable, or muggable, or whatever... I just wrote it up to being in one of your adventures...

I really enjoyed meeting up with you guys and meeting Becca... You have a wonderful family...

Mike, it'll be fun, but so will the Camaro Nats, and I still plan on heading to Sealy Sunday morning after my last run... Gotta see my H-town peeps... All of em... And those from out of town... Good luck to all of you...

Robert:
You going with a single parachute? Don't you need dual chutes for over 200 mph?

(I am going to have a single chute put on mine... for now.)

The chute is for a 4000 lb car at 250 mph... It's huge, 14 feet across, and it's a cross form

Nope, got home this afternoon, after I left dinner with PQ, Bonnie and Becca, I made it to Lake Charles and could not keep my eyes open any longer... I stopped and got a room... Had a wake up call at nine am and slept til 11... Still had five hours of driving after I woke up...

Talking

Robert I have but one question... Is the factory carpet big enough and strong enough to fill the hole where the spare tire compartment used to be?

Maybe you can pull the shoot about the same time Jaren and Skip say "I do". Kind of symbolic if you know what I mean. ROFLMAO

Seriously... I hope you get a little rest along the way. You work way too hard my friend.

symbolic in more ways than one...

As for the carpet, it is the same size... But the hole for the spare tire is no longer there... We cut it out and plated over it with aluminum... The nitrous bottles are bolted down to the aluminum. there is a big frame, 2" x 3" heavy wall steel to support the chute tube... The way is was done, we can pull the pin, pull the main tube, and bolt the license plate back in place... I'll have more pics in the next couple of days...

Better than sitting in a permanently closed restaurant waiting for service... And getting mugged...

Coco Loco for FTMFW.

And I was eyeballing the waffle house as I drove by it... I love those places...

Unless you got a waffle house in Cali, you got a long drive... Closest one to me is Houston...
