Default Hello From Texas

Hi all, Thinking about building another drag car, tired of spending quarters washing off red dirt from the track. Nothing fancy, just a average street/strip toy, my son will be 16 soon, figured I better get started early.

It's just worthless Woody with another screen name as usual.
Seems to always have a project but never post current pictures or video of them.
This time he brought his kid into it for sympathy so he can ask for parts like usual. Playing the broke man's hustle yet again.

This is the third new member I've seen you say these things about. Not sure if you're very accurate about it...

I read that whole thread to current and I did not see anything out of the ordinary. I mean besides his poor choice of recreational activities that is, but all else seemed normal. JMHO!!

I am not arguing the validity of your claim, as I couldn't tell you Woody from any other new member. I would just hate to see a member get confused and quit over a misunderstanding is all.

The guy trolls my posts here and on other forums. Has been doing it for almost 4 years now.

LOL That's a relief! There is a dirt track less than a mile from my house and I see tons of these cars headed to and from. I have contemplated opening an emergency G Body rescue! lol

No, I'm in Boyd (NW of DFW) Boyd Raceway just a small time dirt track that's very popular during the season.
