The hill climb practices are going now. So far I'm leading in the 400 cubic inch and bigger class
Looks like fun. This will be the second year in a row that I've missed an event in Nebraska. Always a few weeks late or early. Will be in Omaha the end of July. Not all bad I plan to pick up my Dayton wire wheels for my 16.
Keep the pictures coming.
Do you have any competition in your class?
How well does the K get up that hill?
Did you beat Humble Howard's time in Lucky 7?
Looks like it was HOT there today just like all the previous ones, no shade, sorry I missed it
95 degrees with a 20 or so mile an hour cross wind. The T's were about two seconds slower than the A's. Well run event but it was a shame that the timing device broke and only gave the e.t. and not the speed. But it was very accurate, so they got the figures right. They gave us readings at 60 feet and one tenth of a mile which is 528 feet.
We had a carburetor issue with a leaking float and so didn't get to make a single test run. So the first run was for the record. We only had two runs and no test because of our carburetion problems and no change in the rules for test runs. They run a tight ship.
The Model A through C engines had a lot of different classes for port, and head configuration, transmissions, and other things that the later four cylinder Fords did t o make them go fast. The T's only have two classes. Flat head and overhead valves. Cranks and other mods all run together. So a stock T runs against a C crank with a Z head with a big Winfield and nasty cam.
In most places, that's not a hill; that's someone's driveway. Even in our Gulf Coast prairies, the hill on Damon, Texas' salt dome, has more elevation than that.
Speed bump with traffic cones. :-)
Looks like a lot of fun though.
My driveway is just a little steeper than that and a lot steeper if you talk to someone else that has come up it!
That picture was doctored, here is the real hill.
