Fellow Slanters and corner Carvers;

A few of us have registered for the Saturday edition of the BRR AutoX
https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/br ... dge-434081

Then maybe a drive to the back of the Dragon at some point..
From Marion Va to Tazewell Va.

other slanted shenanigans to ensue as well I am sure.

Greg

Well
Day one of the weekend shenagginas was a success - 3 Slanted cars at this event, a 4th slant 6 friend/ Driver was was there as well to cheer us on and give us years of autox wisdom too!

Tomorrow a Trip up the back of the dragon for the 3 cars, then for the VA Guys it's a quick jaunt back home, and for me I will be heading up over some more mountains back to PA.

Plenty of fun at the autoX, then cookout at my place for the afternoon/eve. Mark took a look at my bodywork on the 68 and gave some advice - thanks, Mark! Brian brought my dipped/stripped fenders and valance for the 64 Dart - thanks, Brian! Greg stayed over in the basement (separate bathroom and entrance). AutoX times were so-so, but plenty to learn about the car and driving. Both Greg and I still had fuel starvation issues due to carbs. I had not seen any on a full-zoot roadcourse weekend in November, but the transitions are faster in autoX. EFI coming soon for me, or I'll swap to a 500 Hly 2bbl for autoX since I know those work.

Today we hit Back of the Dragon from Marion, VA to Tazewell, VA. WOW, that is a fun road. Gotta do that again, likely both ways. Wayyyy more fun than the autoX and almost no traffic. After an early lunch, Greg headed north and Mark south. I took VA 61 back to Narrows, VA (more fun then hopped on US 460. Got home at 1:20 PM and just had a relaxing time mowing the lawn and weeding... The 62 Valiant, mostly stock suspension (stock tbars and no front sway, stiffer rear leafs and hotchkis shocks) was a beautiful terror on the mtn roads. Need to autoX that again or get it on a roadcourse. Might swap on a front swaybar (esp for autoX), but honestly it felt quite good. The car is very light, of course.

Lou

Began this Day's activities outside Marion Va on Route 16:

Back of the Dragon Was intense - Everyone was grinning ear to ear!

On the clearing / overlook where the BOTDPIX photographer sets up we pulled off to admire the road, the air, the countryside and slant 6 camaraderie.

The Fog Kept rolling over the mountain the entire time we stopped. Awesome sights.

Behold the view.

On the way.. stuck behind real traffic was the only safe place to snap one of these.
