Pontiac Motor Stand

By doug

I just completed a Pontiac Motor Stand... I got this big block motor stand for free the other day to put my Pontiac 400 on and when i got it it was really rusty and it wouldnt go well in my garage looking all rusty and dirty so... I decided to paint it with some left over engine Paint. Pontiac Blue engine paint to be exact. And i also had my brother-in-law make up some Firebird stickers to go on it as well when it was painted and done and this is how it turned out. What is so cool about it is that its The Only Pontiac Motor Stand That I have seen. IT is a real Pontiac Motor Stand and it doesent even have the engine on it Yet!!

New Years Mud Bogg

By doug

We had a blast at the Dallas Mud Bogg ther was tons of trucks i have not seen so many at one time.... People were overheating and breaking axles and drive shafts there was popped tires and tons of stuck trucks..... We took the jeep and the nissan out and had a great time... The jeep came back muddy on the under side but a little mud on the upperside.... The nissan on the other hand came back covered and when i say covered i mean caked and packed down to no end... The only problem was is that the trany started to not want to pull and she was beggining to over heat and on top of that we had lost our rear drive shaft and busted out the rear glass. Ooops... The jeep didnt get over 160 all day but the nissan i dont know how hot that thing got but... This is the story of how we busted the window the Owner of the truck got the idea to try to roll it over but after a failed atempt it fell into a mud hole that came up to the top of the hood.... NO LIE. We tried to pull him out with the jeep and the tow strap Broke and went flying into the back glass and it shattered one side of the window... If the Head rest was not on the seat it would have hit the guy in the head. How we lost the drive shaft i Dont Know but it was a blast.. IF ANY ONE HAS Video from this event please give me a heads up i would like to see if we were in anny video besides our own.. That was a blast its nothing like riding fourwheelers in the country i know that for a fact... I think i am hooked on a good time and will be going here again very soon!!!!!!!! Enjoy Some of these pics on this subject Thanks For Reading!

Dallas Dragstrip

By doug

Closed but not forgoten. the Southeastern Dragway will not be forgoten, the 1/8th mile track holds many memories and then some. it is now running silent, she has been deprived of her legacy. she has been beaten and no one is there to fix her. she needs to be reopend. WHY WAS SHE CLOSED? IT IS SAD EVERY TIME I SEE THAT DRAGSTRIP I CAN HEAR THE ROAR OF THE CARS THE RACING FUEL AND RUBBER, BUT IT NOW HOLDS NOTHING BUT MEMORIES.

All shall remember that dragstrip it is now just sitting noone to race on it. it needs to be fixed,

All the people that wanted it closed down got their wish, but we shall stand up and take it back because that dragstrip is what made dallas what it is today. It can be made better, reopen it within weeks and some hard work we can all pitch it and get it back running again.

Farewell GMC

By doug

Even though the GMC is gone now i am very happy that i got the jeep out of it because the telico trails are fun to ride around in it. and you dont stay cold like you would on a atv during the winter months. i like that the jeep is in the place of the gmc now because that was a little more work than i could do by my self. SO I LIKE TRAIL RIDING NOW!
