Haven't seen a FFW specific thread started yet so I thought I would start one to keep all the info together.
Can we come up with a gameplan. Wou is going? Who will show on which day? Should we show as a group? Who will run? Should we meet and cruise in? etc. :rolleyes:

I am "planning" on being there both days to show (unless work tells me other wise). It's $40 to show both days or $35 to watch both days, for $5 more you get good parking & can bring the cooler in, plus could possible win a award or door prize. I'm thinking about running true street & going for a index, probly 14.0 unless I miss a shift, then will go for 15.0. Closest to index wins trophy. Still deciding on to run or not.
No plans on what time I am getting there yet or cruising together with anyone yet. So let the plans begin. :thumbsup: :bounce:

I really can't decide if I should show or race, probably show being that I have the slowest Cobra in H-Town :rotf:

What do ya'll think? should I break something or show and :cheers: ???

I assume L means link?
Here is the link to the Fun Ford (http://www.funfordevents.com/) & here is the Houston Fun Ford (http://www.funfordevents.com/index.php?src=directory&view=Event%20List&srctype=display&back=Event%20List&id=437&submenu=Events&view=Event+List&pos=0,20,13&PHPSESSID=e905bf71686ab0482957f3572d8403d0)

No, I'm pretty sure I have the slowest Cobra in H town, vert NA 5.0 (heavy, no blower & lowest HP rating) & driver who doesn't want to tell the wife I broke the car racing :eek: :baby: :whipit: :spanked: :spank2: with over 122k miles to boot. What she does not know won't hurt her & it is easier to ask for forgivness than permission. :thumbsup:

I can't beleive all of you- Not one of you is even thinking of racing! It's a drag strip for Christsakes!!!!! You guys really disappoint me on this note!!!!!

And phil, You've been waiting what?- 5 years to go down the strip and run in FFW. :mad:


Larry needs to bring the '03- Break it and put a real rear end in it!
Larry also needs to bring the shelby clone out and show it!

Andy- That's not a drag car so- he should show it!

And the ladies- You need to run in True street and maybe get fetured or even you picture in a mag. ( women always get there hot rods featured!)

Yes, you can run anything you want except Full slicks ie: ( ET Drags, MT Drags, or any slick!) They do not count nitto's and BFG DRag radials as slicks!
You can even run the new MT Street Radial that is like a Drag Radial!

I have a set of Nitto DR's and will get them mounted up on a set of old rims
and enter True Street. Will that make you happy?

You can show and let me use the drag radials- That would be cool too!

But yea mount them up, come on out and run some instead of sitting on the side lines with the rest of the Cobra's!

I will show both days...have not missed one since 1999! :thumbsup: Although, my car looks like crap these days, and I have a real bad feeling this year I will go home empty handed....but, Its still a good time. And, I always enjoy seeing all the people again...

who knows...maybe my buddy Dennis will be there again! (Dennis Gage/My Classic Car)LOL.... Ive seen him about 4 or 5 times between there and Ennis.... Hes prolly pissed at me for not having drinks with him that time. :o

Kim, I will meet you and we can cruise up there together....Prolly be easier to meet on your side of town. I will find out if Tim or Dan are going. Steve will still be on the ship. :(

Looking forward to seeing everyone there...

Mephisto
04-26-2004, 09:23 AM
290 and Jones? Can we pick a spot that is more central. Is there any place to meet around I-45 and 610 or I-45 and beltway 8?

Do you want to meet at Whataburger on 290 and jones

04-26-2004, 09:31 AM
I agree with the Fu-Fu Buyer- Somewhere like beltway and I-10 or Even someplace like Beltway and 45!




I'll have the EZ-UP out the track if anyone is interested!


Also the have the 10x10's on sale at oshmans for sale for $59.00 - Offer ends Monday at close of business!

Just thought I'd let everyone know!
