im in Havasu .... and not that you need any new friends....
i started dabbling in a vintage stockfull truck. Man would I love to pick your brain....... would be awesome
79 Ford... it’s been around for a while... anyhow if you’d be interested I’d be honored
We are obviously just racing the vintage classes (local deals) Norra is on the bucket list.
anyhow .....
if I could get ahold of my trucks big brother class 8 that would be cool. We would like to race them both in a few local venue.
come on loto......

sorry to derail the thread .... but it loosely ties into class 8
Go on about this stock full truck... I know of 2 in Havasu, one has been racing(old TNC/Barnett Towing Truck) the other we've (my cousin mostly) has been trying to see if the owner would sell back to us.

We still have our Nelson and Nelson class 8, that Dad and I run in 1450 in SNORE now. Still meets all Class 8 rules and yes, runs on race fuel. I agree with not changing that rule. Would love to see Class 8 come back as it’s own class, not merging with 1450! Excited to see where this goes
Nelson and Nelson.... does your dad happen to know a Ramiro Gonzalez (my dad)?

I'm pretty sure they were rubbing doors at one time.

Does Empty Pockets still have it, or did it move to another owner?

It used to have a green stripe. Empty Pockets Gary has this truck now (we also have paid trackside for picture, I just don't have it on this computer)

So the top truck was the Hailey truck and the bottom was the Truck out of Kingman, right?

The bottom was originally built by my uncle, then Merritt had it, then Scott Dunlap, it was later rolled at a TT250 (05?) and was rebuilt (most of the truck) by Rubio (TNC) in Kingman. We bought it from Dunlap (late 08), raced it for a few years, then sold it to Adrian Diaz who sold it to some guys in Havasu.

That's right, I couldn't remember Rubio, but I thought he was prepping or fab'ing on it when Manny was driving it. That's why I said Kingman. I liked that truck better than the Hailey truck.
