All in all a nice day at the races.. The laid back attitude and the fact that almost all the drivers knew each other made it even better. These guys take their racing seriously.

Like that Mustang! ^^ FE? Hard for me to think of Lencos as "old school"! ;D
Me too George, but I think Davy means the old style shifters, instead of the current single lever like a pro stock. Thanks so much Davy, for the excellent coverage. I REALLY like that Thames Panel!

 The air shifter and the lever shifter are interchangeable on the same transmission.  Jim

Ok,  so they 87 yr old owner probably just likes the old style individual levers..................  but to me it reminded me of the early 70's
