Saturday, they had their annual Wings and Wheels event. This is their biggest show of the year with car classes that you normally don't see. This race had SK Modifieds (my personal favorite...and they race just about every week), ISMA Supermodified (the big ones), Valenti Modified (a northeast racing series that, as far as I can tell, uses SK Modifieds), Pro-4 Modifieds (mini-SK Modifieds...it was this car class' first visit to the 'Bowl), NEMA Lights and NEMA Midgets.
It was very entertaining and fortunately there were very few accidents so the racing was good.
|Well, except for this accident. That's an SK Modified.|
|They don't have batteries, transmissions or starters, so push-start only.|
|A little blurry, but you get the idea.|
As for the whole point of this blog, I unfortunately haven't done much. The bathroom re-model has taken longer than I thought and the family is coming back earlier than planned. However, I did replace the driver's side motor mount with an actual Spitfire one. The spares that I had, I quickly discovered, were not from a Spitfire, but it did fit.
|My spare engine mounts. That's a SpitBits sticker on the bottom one. Spitfires have only one stud, not two. Still fit, though.|
|New mount, all pretty-like.|
|New Lucas high- and low-note horns. Of note, the new ones are plastic.|
|The seat continues to soak. That white vinegar works wonders, though it's not too white anymore. Takes the paint off, too.|
