Just to give you info on Jammie Jacksons drag race videos if you like to see the West Coast drag racing history on many video's here it is. Jammie did a few in depth video's on my Blown Alcohol P/M 57tbird and me and my dads A/FX Holman Moody 427 factory built 65 Mustang 4 time NDRA series A/FX Champion. Plus Half Moon Bay Reunion featuring the 57tbird and 427 R code Galaxie lots of history. And soon to come "Silver Bullet" history making tbird from grass roots begining to todays high speed low 9 second and soon 8 second history making performances. For you young guys this is a neat deal to see the way it was and how fun drag racing was and still is today



Look through the many west coast video files and order now you may remember Fremont and a few others long gone but not the memories

Which videos have coverage of your '57 Tbird and your dad's '65 Mustang? I looked down the list, but I couldn't find your names.

On a side note, when are you running your SC next?

Jammie Jackson

He and his brother Sony did two videos on the the A/FX Mustang from Fremont to Bakersfeild the 57tbird from Pomona to Infineon. The A/FX Mustang is in the Fremont last drag race as well. Jammie made them for the family they have real nice sound and color very well done. He has the master copies to make more. I also have the 97 Speedvision video of the 57tbird at Pomona that aired on TV "American Hot Rodder"

The SC we are looking at August 15th or the 22nd Medford got pushed back one week. This will give us time to work more on the IRS last time out it got a little wild at the 330 mark crossing the centerline we feel we got a handel on that now

We might go testing sooner Chuck has the IRS fine tuned with the Vari Quick Set 2 double adjustable shocks. We now set the limiters to 3" travel on the front we are fine tuning the suspension to pick up the 60ft and 330 he's been doing a lot of figuring out what it likes and what tune setup is needed on the shocks

Jim Waldo gave us some ideas with help from Total Control I think we have a good setup to run for a new record
