If any of you folks go to Sebring, make sure to let me know. Not that far from me. I would like to come down and be part of the cheering section.

I just posted in this thread, but we're tentatively planning to be at Sebring in May 2021.

Sorry to hear those guys with the '67 Valiant aren't racing anymore. Sounds like they're not real keen on wrenching and are having more fun doing Lemons rallies these days.

I would be into Sebring in May, if that happens and it is safe to do so. Will show up in a Slanted A-body with tools and racing suit/helmet, ready to drive, repair, buy folks BBQ, shoot $hit...

Is Florida too far from Pennsylvania for you to play, Greg?



Not really but I have other responsibilities that limits my fun time.

Greg, have you found a Lemons team to hang out with at Pitt? Lemons COVID restrictions make it so you have to be registered with a team as Driver or Crew beforehand; no spectators at the gate. I can help rattle the bushes if you want. There are some guys coming from the Chicago/NW Indiana area that are great to hang around as a Lemons newcomer.

No I have no solid team/ reason to be there.. except for a special delivery from Rick Covalt to you.

I have all the proper racing gear now 'cept a hans device but I have anchors for one in my helmet.

How’s about a ‘59 Silverhawk with a Slant 6...? :twisted:

I loosely compared the wheelbase the other day to Adam’s S10. The Hawk is about 120” and the S10 is a few inches shorter. I know a purdy good fabercater what could put them two together.... :twisted:

A silverhawk with a slant would be cool but probably horrendusly slow..

An omni tc3 with a slant is more like it!
