At the 50th Indy I lost 50 lbs. to get to min. weight for class. People kept asking Patsy if I was OK, or was I sick.

If you do this for fun your not OK and your pretty sick.

New door glass both sides, thanks Jerry's Glass in Mayfield Ky. Can't run plastic glass in 15 has to be 09 and 10 DP only. Thanks John for saving me some grief and some scrambling next week at Indy. Now I can put dial on window. All support electrical systems work fuel, fan, water pump, lights front and back, and stop lite in the window. New battery for a new car. I still have to find some parts in some bar stock. With a little luck we could be smelling smoke tomorrow afternoon. After almost three years I will be ready.

I'm trying to get the car re-certified this week so I won't miss a qualifying run at Indy next week. I think I lucked out there is a NHRA tech in Benton IL. 75 miles away. Load up the car and let him check out my new, to me, car.
