Bensenville Jalopy Race

Postby Junior » Sat Jun 06, 2015 6:28 am

Finally got to race the Jalopys last night and they were a blast! Looking forward to building another.
#15 & 7 are running on ShotGun Dave's patented brass highboy chassis design and the other two are plastic PCS chassis'.

Allright, this is fun to see. I guess it's time to start filling the field up with more.

Great job guys.

You'll have one to build very shortly Fred. I just need to finish up the castings and send them out. So you, Cheater and Norb will all have a car to build to run against Tom.

Totally Cool ... I am still waiting on the two 1936 Ford bodies I ordered way back when but still no word on when they will be ready to ship.
Oh Well ... one of these days I might even get to make a race. It's just so hard for me with my work schedule. Haven't been doing any Sat. racing eighter.
Thank God my track is still useable so I at least get to play in the middle of the night. I think that's a Billy Joel song ... LOL

The cars are supper COOL! ... J Y D
