Low turnout. I think Saturday was better. Based on a car show along with the drags. Dave told me that Fred was there as well. I can only dream if he and Jim were younger what they would be doing in pro mod. Kickin some ass!!!

I overheard they were having problems with some bumps at the top end. Cars seemed to be loose.

I haven't heard that and I haven't been down it.

But I had recently heard that Packman killed off the long running Niagara Swap Meet. 1 and done.

The bump in the left lane, probably 100ft out, was killing traction for a lot of cars. Not all, but was hell on the short wheel base guys. Turn out was ok...Got tons of pics. Not sure how to post them anymore since they want money for my photosucket account.

Empire will run 1/8 and it's almost exactly in the middle of Buffalo and Rochester.

The problem with Lancaster is they need someone that knows what they're doing, not one that wrote a good resume. Reger somehow finds all the losers.

I remember not too long ago when this event was known as "The largest gathering of Gassers in the country".

It sucks to see what it's like today.

A lot of history cars and their owners and/or builders would show up. I met Barb Hamilton and got to know Ohio George at this event among others.

From what I understand, Jimmy didn't get an invite and there was no talk about the group getting paid, comp'd, whatever, so because of that no one was going to show up.

I wasn't there but from what I did see, it's good to see that some of the guys did show up just to have a good time regardless.
