:Idaho Bob: Wet track would be bad but you know that. This has to be a disappointment for you. I will trade the snow coming down for your rain. :Crisy:

Joe won't make the 11's for sure, Hope to do a 12.70 maybe . Need more compression to really go faster, Maybe if I am still standing upright in a couple of years I will put some big dome pistons in it . But guess it is running pretty good for it;s weight. People that has any sence that races usally has a car that weighs 26-2800lbs .

Ididn't go out this morning, went out to the shop to pack up my cooler and warm the old truck up and it started raining and the wind is blowing around 30 mph . Would be a missrible day out there to race. So Im now thinking do I want to go out for the swap meet and take a look see. I think I may just stay in the house and relax, Im pretty tired right now. Feels like I may be catching a bug. That is all I need Smile

It's reallly hard to get going when it rains and especially difficult when you don't sleep well Bob...Sorry to hear your day didn't go as planned. I do hope you got some well needed rest Bobby.

I will leave Redsled loaded and ready to go, Friday night Drags, Club race #1 would have been nice if I had her tested and tuned but Thats ok. Smile Weather should be better I hope.

It sure would have been a misrible day out at the track, I think the rain had stopped where they could race but sure would have been cold. Smile

Hi Bob!
I like your racecar, your "Redsled".
You said that you go to the dragstrip, which ones?
I was just wondering cause I live here in Mountain Home, Idaho.

I once went to the dragstrip with my dad, I believe that it was Meridian Speedway.
I went when I was only about 5 or 10 years old, so I don't remember much about it, except for that it was loud. I think I must have complained or something about the loudness to my dad, cause I have never gone to the dragstrip ever since. I wish I had never complained, just I didn't know much better since I was only 5 or 10. Very Happy
Now since I know that my favorite car is here in Idaho, I hope that I can go to one of the races where you are racing! I would love to see your car, because I have actually never even seen a '58 Plymouth in person ever before.
By the way, my dream car is a '58 Plymouth Fury or Belvedere, just I haven't found one yet to buy for my own...

Thank you for sharing your photos of your car, Bob!

---Jackie.

Oh, he doesn't? That's too bad! Crying or Very sad
Idaho Bob was the only person that I knew of that lived here in Idaho that owned a '58 Plymouth... I was kinda happy that I knew someone else here in Idaho that had a '58 Plymouth... Now I guess, I will be the only one that has one, when I get one... Crying or Very sad

I am sorry, but I seem to have a tendency to not notice the thread post dates...

No problem Jackie...just didn't want you to feel bad when he doesn't answer you. Ron didn't realize either so I just figured I'd let you both know. Many don't see the post date as it is really small.

It's all good.

Ok, thanks. I appreciate it for you letting me know...

Oh, when you said that Idaho Bob doesn't play here anymore, did you mean that he just isn't on this thread anymore cause its an old thread, or did you mean that he isn't a member of this club anymore?

When I said he doesn't play here anymore that was just a "nice way" for me to say that he doesn't post anymore. It's sad because he was a really nice guy and a very active member. What are you going to do? It's inevitable that things always change.

I had too do a double take when I seen this old post revived. I thought Bob had popped in.

Would be nice to hear what he has been doing with his 58.

That is sad that he doesn't post anymore, I wish that I could have got more time to know him...

On your question "What I a going to do?", I am sorry, I would like to answer, but my mind doesn't seem to get your question... Could you please re-phrase it for me? Thanks.

Hi Brian!
It's Jackie.

I have found YouTube videos of Bob racing his '58, which Bob calls "Redsled". I am not sure how old the videos are, but I thought it was cool to have found them...
Would anyone like me to post the videos on the CCC's Drive-In-Theater page?
