Car gone as roller, now to sell motor, trailer and a ton of spare parts I’ve accumulated over the years.

A guy I did engines, trans & pitted with for a few seasons, likes work'n with Tony. Wherever Tony goes, he goes. Starting BLP. He won Div 2 S/Pro 2019 with a Tony Morris gas carb, I'm sure.
That was quick Barney. Guess you weren't kidding.

Wishing Mr. B a happy retirement. I use to love your Polara back in the day. You have undoubtedly contributed much to the sport and wish you the best. Sorry to see you hang it up.
Tony and I have been friends for years. He drove my car for three seasons. We talked about this carb on the way up to get my trailer.
Easily distracted by bright shiny objects.
Wife says I'm a new adventure every day.

surprised. Was this planned to be your last season?
Mount front end, hood and scoop
New seat window net

Little odds and ends here and there
I should've just built a new car lol. Its taken me five years to get to this point. Only thing old on the car is the body and chassis
On my S-10:
- Water pump
- Ignition box
- Fuel lines
- Freshen trans
- Delay box
That's all I can think of right now. Other than an engine swap a few months ago, the truck hasn't been touched since I built it in 2013. I plan to hit the road and go to some bigger races next year, so it's time to give it some love and put some better parts on it.

Yes sir, been kicking it around for the last couple years. Just wanted to make sure I could do it without regret and I did.
Was good talking to you this past summer and best of luck to you and Kyle.

Getting a trans after NY, and then get it wrapped.
You have to put in the effort, to get anything out of it.
Thanks Barney, you too.
Pull the car cover off, put a new master cylinder in to try to fix the soft brake pedal "thing".
Only 47 runs on it after finishing it three weeks from end of season. 1 -1/4 final. one semi-final and a Box win. I am liking the new S10 !!

-Finish bodywork (almost there)
-Get car painted (looking for someone to do this)
-re-wire car and install MSD 7720 (already have 7730 paired with a digital 6)
-Make new rear panels for interior
-Paint roll cage
-New carpet throughout
-New slicks (going from 28x10 to 30x9 I think, not sure what will fit under the new quarters so will have to see)
-New rear wheels (tired of the clearance issues I have now with my street lites)
-Retire and probably sell open trailer and get enclosed trailer tagged and updated for 2021
I need to get started to get it all done.

lets get some before and after photos posted
Well my 2020/2021 is a rebuild of the 509. Last race 5.754,5.756 then 3rd 5.80 got lucky 4th rd 5.90 all out lost 4 mph. But hey it still runs and all the parts are still in the block. Pulled it out the the trailer today and its full of nice sparkly glitter...
Now what to do fix it and leave it a 509? Or step it up a bit to a 565 or something.. Was an original Reher Morris motor that i bought use from Bruce Guertin who post here. 19 years old and still kicking...
