Default my yr 2010

well to all the good people I know and have meet that have given me help and kind words, just want to say thank you!!!!!!
2010 was a good yr for me, got a new motor, a new glide and finally , got me a trans brake!!!!
sense I was a lil boy I have always wanted to drag race, and comming from a non race car family and a dad who liked shinny fords, to me it was a dream and I also wanted to go 10.90 all motor, going 10.90 was something in my mind that all people dont get to do, they might get to bracket race there hot rods but not go in the 10's

well in 2010 with the help of all my friends encouragment, a very cool wife and a few loans and some 401 k money, I put a new drivetrain in my 12pt caged blazer, that everyone said , man that thing is slow and finally got my 10 second slip, in fact out of all the passes this motor has run its slowest pass was a 10.75
one dream passed:rock::rock::rock::rock::rock:

I also kept telling everyone, ya I am gonna paint this blazer white, and 4yrs latter, it also came out in 2010 with a white paint job and a new power plant , and also my childhood friend who is so very cool, also did the lettering a pic of slowpoke on tailgate, it turned out very cool, it makes people smile and laugh and to me thats whats it is all abought

2010 was a good yr for meloy racing , and to all my friends who have helped along the way thank you!!!!!!

I wish you all a very happy and fun race season in 2011

Kudoo's Spib. You are blessed to do what you do my friend. God willing, you will probably find a lower ET yet... now that you have drag disease.
