    I was talking to a friend last week who is my age & also raced. He mentioned that several of the guys our age have passed on. He said you know we have both done some stupid things in our lives & we are lucky to still be alive. I told him he was right but it sure was fun living on the edge.
    There are lyrics from a country song that I have lived by,"I'd rather be sorry for something I've done than for something I didn't do".

    The 57 Fury was a hot one, it could hold its own with the 270HP Chevy, (almost)

    In high school I worked in a shop for a Mopar guy. His son had a 57 Fury but I never saw a 57 that was nearly as fast as the Chevys in the 1320 or as fast on the top end as the Oldsmobiles of that time. Knew a guy that had a J-2 Olds. It was a big sled but would hide the speedometer needle once it got moving. The museum on Petit Jean Mountain has an original J-2 that is driven occasionally.

    We had one in town, Holman, Moody did some work on, did the mid 90s, think it had 2 4s, solid lifters.
    Had a few Tri Power Pontiacs that ran well.
    I had a 57 FI convertible that ran 98 off the floor, spent all my money at the drag strip.

    The J-2 was a factory Tri-Power. I remember the air cleaner was the size of a #2 washtub. I also saw some Pontiacs that showed others their tailights. The cars were fast for the times but faster & lighter cars have since been available from the dealers.

    Conversation overheard at a nitrous/blown drag meet. "That bump you felt was when you ran over the crankshaft".
