I bought a house in Washington state on a golf course this past summer. It isn't much to look at, but come spring time I'll have it repainted and the landscaping done up properly.
Yeah, I don't think an F100 would do a high 7 second quarter if you dropped if off of a 1mi high cliff!
Seriously, these profiles are worthless. You can only have one car. I entered my dragster time in long ago, but I'm building my F100 at the moment. A look at the "Member Timeslips" shows the data and the 256" WB RED being responsible for the times. I haven't ran the truck yet...and won't until after its painted, which means that it will have to wait until the tracks here open up in the spring unless I want to trailer it down to Arizona (though Las Vegas would work, too)...which is really doubtful. No sense in driving 2000+ mi round trip just to run a high 12 or something. If I'm going anywhere in the trailer before spring, it is going to be with the RED in the back.
All of the tracks up here (at least somewhat nearby) are 1/8th mile tracks. I haven't raced an 1/8th since 1981 in Texas...in a 427 SOHC '66 fastback...when you could still buy 104 leaded premium out of the Sunoco stations (for damn near a buck-fifty a gallon!) and drive up to the drive-thru liquor store and order a beer for the road.
...times have changed a bit since then.
I've thought about changing the oil pan and fitting the spare 393 in the F100, but then I'd have to build extractors for it and find a transmission that will take it...and before too long, it starts sounding a whole lot like work...especially since I just got the 357" in it. No, better to sell it and just work on the new car for a few months.
