Nice image. And look at the posture of Mr. Couch standing there in the sun!

The Hemi L0/B0 reunion at Carlisle went well. Had 11 of the 16 cars I had planned show up, wish more would have come but two of the cars I was supposed to bring didn't get done, so I brought a 68 Dart GSS instead. I want to personally thank Daryl for taking his car over to the Mopar Hall of Fame celebration Saturday night, thank you big time! Thanks also to Mark Janaky for bringing his amazing collection of photo's and prior owner text and setting up at the Hurst Reunion, and his presentation at the Hall of Fame celebration! Pics to come...

I like to thank everybody who participated in Carlisle and the cars that came. But what a disappointment it was as far as a turn out and where it was held. Everyone who owns a Super Stock Barracuda - Dart should have been there. What a disgrace even my friend Tony who did not go with his Barracuda. What a terrible job Carlisle did not even mention where the cars where over the speaker. It should have been in the same building it was 25 years ago and not on the outside of the grounds. Sorry Love these car but totally disappointed on the turnout and Carlisle

Seriously? If you missed Elkton 2006 and Salem Ohio 2008 you missed the boat sir. From what I gather 11-12 originals were there at Carlisle and that is amazing. To see one is a rarity. Two together, almost impossible. , You have a better shot at seeing bigfoot than seeing 11-12 together in one zip code. Liteweights car was there and it's as good as they get.

Sorry I missed it. Would have loved to bring my LO23, but it's extremely difficult to break away from work for that long. On the bright side, I did get my car to the dragstrip to try out the new 604 FHO hemi, and it is an animal! I gotta get used to the wheelstands, so I can do this car justice, but it is definitely a high 8-second car!

As you can see, we were dealing with "first time at the dragstip" issues, getting the suspension dialed in, slowly increasing the shift rpm, rev limiter, etc. It was running 9.5s at 142+ mph, and I wasn't even doing full-throttle passes, with a LOT of room left to go with the revs, etc. I expect to see an 8-second time slip my next time out.. so long as we get that suspension dialed in. As addictive as the feeling of the nose climbing skyward is, I want to be certain that the car is going straight up and straight down every time before I start really launching hard and staying hard on the throttle the whole way. Good Lord, I love this car.
