Just got back from the speedster run in Spokane WA. Those guys can sure put on a great run! This was my first run as a driver in my own car and won't be my last. THANK YOU SPOKANE T CLUB
Thank-you Mike for coming over! The final numbers have not been crunched, but it looks like we may come out in the black so we'll have a few bucks to donate to charity.
Well worth driving 900 miles in 3 days.Only 170 miles in the speedster.
The Spokane guys really put a great run together; wonderful roads and scenery.....if you could take the time to look. I was fortunate to be in the midst of some very generous T folks when I broke a front radius rod late in the afternoon before the run. I was certain that my navigator and I would have a "spa day" instead of a fun ride the next day. Tom Carnegie stepped up and opened his shop for a fix to get us back in action. Thank you, Tom, for the skilled fix and also to Ted Alkier for initiating the fix-it process.
Tom and the folks from the local T club and Montana 500 folks did a great job this weekend. No photos from me, I was way too busy trying to drive and snagging some looks at the hills, forests, wheat fields, lakes, streams and occasional sage brush. It was a beautiful route with speed limits from 25 to 55 and one stretch of 65 for those who wanted to do that.
Great work Tom and friends!
Here is a link to the spreadsheet. Jilly should have some pictures up soon.
For some reason the formulas did not transfer over on the first spreadsheet that I uploaded. I have repaired the sheet if the one that you downloaded is defective.
Here is a link to Jillian's photos. These are not all of them as my wife's finger never quits clicking the shutter button. I'm sure she took 800 photos over the weekend. On Saturday there was a Civil war reenactment that some of the people went to, and these photos are included. Be sure to check back because there are more to be uploaded.
Link don't work for me!
Link did not work for me also!
First link downloaded the results spreadsheet - Thanks!
Second link went to Photobucket but shows the album is empty. Either there is an issue with the link or she didn't get them published there yet. No biggy, will check back later.
Jillian deleted them. They should be back later.
Good Job Rookie! A little slow on the first leg, fine job (2nd) on the hill climb and a little fast on the second leg. Mighty good results.
OK, the pictures are up!
I knew there was a good reason I needed to build a speedster.
Thanks Walt, means alot coming from you. My goal was just to finish as this was my longest drive in this car yet. I'm surprised I did as well as I did. I did not have time to prep the car with a speedo and my navigator was greener than me But boy we had fun!! If I was to pick a favorite point on the run it was passing our buddy Ray moore in overdrive on the road to the finish! Good Luck in Nelson BC.
Erich, you do need to build a speedster It has been the most fun I have ever had in a old car and the people are great too.
