Yeah. We had no less than 5 car shows within a 15 mile radius all on the same day, lol. Most shows have banned canopy use just for this reason. Just so happens we picked the show that had them, and the one that got away missed every car in the lot except my fathers. Even missed mine that was parked right next to him. What are the chances? LOL

The real kicker is that I would have rather it hit mine, because I'm blowing it apart in the next couple months for another repaint anyway.

Sadly though, people suddenly became ignorant, no one would claim the canopy and somehow, no one else knew who it belonged to either. You would think real car people would back each other up and look out for one another.

Dad still having fun with the car. We did over 500 miles this past weekend doing the Goodguys event. 2 weeks prior he was back at the track and improved his best time.
Still gremlins to work out. Tried a new converter and the trans is now having a high gear slipping problem, but had some nice wheels up launches and 60's were coming down as he was getting used to the new converter. Despite the high gear issue he still managed a 10.87 at 123, the mph was down from what it should have been as one would expect.

Still uploading outside videos but here's one from inside my car with the go pro. This is what a stock 350hp looks like compared to 724 hp LOL

On a brighter note, after time trials I went on that day with my Formula to win all the marbles and took home the trophy in the trophy class. Dad somehow managed to make it to the semi final round despite his transmission issues, I won my semi final round and it was going to be a father son final match, but he red lit in the semi final giving away the win.

I saw the car at the Mcdonalds cruise in Chino last year that motor sounds mean!

I just sent the converter out to have the stator changed in hopes of tightening that up a pinch and make it a little more efficient. Turns out that was the problem, it wasn't coupled at all at the track.
