Anyone going to Newport Hillclimb?

Just wondering if anyone on here was going to Newport this year first weekend in Oct. I am taking my 24 Olds touring and 23 Olds truck. Had a blast last year with the touring even though I had the second slowest time, but the car had the wrong spark plugs in it. It now runs slick as a whistle with the right plugs so hope it will do better but the hill always has the final say.

That 27 Chevy 1 ton was the only one I beat! That guy sure does know how to have fun with that old truck! I fired up the 24 touring yesterday and after cleaning out the fuel filter it sounded great.

I think I have a good video of the old flat bed for some years ago. he was dragging the drip pans and half way up the hill when he stopped to go in the granny gear every body did a Chinese fire drill, it was great.

When I get time I'll have to look for it.

This isn't the one I was thing about but here is one.
