I just posted pics on the MTFCI forum, but it's easier just to link there rather than repost them all here...

Enjoy!

Derek,
I see a lot of the "usual suspects" who were in Lincoln this summer at the Speedster Reunion (including our own Mike Vaughn). Thanks for posting,
Rob

Mike Bender and John Steele are forum members here also. They both drove Nick's orange speedster, and John won the class, beating "Grumpy" Don Cusack for the modified T's.

Bill Devine's taste in clothing is impeccable.

Was a lot of fun, Thanks for posting.

Steve, I think you and Bill use the same tailor! His name might be... "Big Smith" :-)

Mike, I couldn't find your car in the pics. Could you tell us which one you were driving and how you did?

Gene - Here is my car, It ran well and I was able to do all 10 runs, I was able to improve as the day progressed. My best run was 14.003 seconds. It was the fastest flathead Model T Speedster but it was also the only flathead Model T Speedster. This past June at the Speedster reunion Fast Frank was the only one to beat me and he whipped me by a bunch.

Mike Vaughn won his class. Shaved off a lot of time and add 3-4 miles an hour on top speed just doing some simple things. He may be able to give Frank a run for his money come Lincoln in 2015. Mike left Northwood with the wheels in his brain turning a 100mph, (ah being Model T maybe it was more like 45 or 50mph) on how to shave some more time off. I 've got some pictures to share if I can figure out how to get them off my IPad. Nick's car is pretty fast. Mike Bender and I were Nick's pit crew (our excuse to go) referred to as Click and Clack. Given another half hour I think we would have gotten into the 9's. Nick knows how to build a car, but he needs some lessons on how to treat his pit crew. :-)

A little Maker's Mark Maybe?

John, if you buy "iCab Mobile" you can upload pics direct from your iPad and/or iPhone.

Sounds like you had a great time,

Rob

Jerry

I had to buy the Marker's Mark myself, something about taking care of the car owner. The biggest complaint I have is the first night we met up in Omaha, Nick made the arrangements for the three of us to stay in the same room. That turn out where the owner (Nick) got the master suite and John and I got bunk beds. Nick claims he didn't know but I think different.

It was great fun, but the next hill climb Click or Clack will be more involved with the motel plans LOL.
