I was down at Atlanta Dragway on friday for FFW (Fun Ford Weekend) unfortunately my cobra was in the shop getting some minor paint work, and work to the driver window system. I was hopeing it was going to be ready so I could make some runs but it wasn't to be. Was just wondering if anyone in the club was there for the weekend. If so does anyone have any good pics of the event?

:burnout:

P.S. Friday was dead. Swap meet wasnt going good, no show cars in yet, test and tune was fun to watch, and the pros were amazing. I've never seen so many cars break or wreck in one day.

Tim,

Be sure to come out to our Fall Drag Day as there are lots of members there all racing against one another and the car show is pretty cool, too. :thumbsup:

Unfortunately, I had a "honey do" list to do today so I couldn't make the "Big A" event. :(

I did not go to the FFW, but I will be at the Atlanta Dragway this weekend for the NHRA event. I haven't been to an NHRA race in 10+ years, and my wife has never seen the pro nitro-burning cars. I can't wait! Maybe I'll come back with some decent pics of that event.

Ok, does anyone else think this is just a little overboard for a pickup truck...

Waiting for a cleanup on lane 2 with my buddy Flint. 66 mustang fastback owner decided to see what his car could do with a set of borrowed slicks. Tires stuck, 8in ford rearend pinion couldn't take it and grenaded dumping gear oil everywhere.
