    that oil problem rings a bell, but its been a while. needed a sump pan, extended pickup. some baffles wouldn't hurt either

    I put on a Gambler 500 sticker so the cops know I'm in a event and not just a weirdo.... Put 100 miles on it and filled it up with gas, time to load it I'm not sure there's anything else I can do..... Still have room on top for camping gear, I'm going to load that this evening then put it on the trailer... Starting to get jazzed up....LOL

    Wife just saw your front bumper. She says she wants one like it '''''''''' I told her if she hit something with it the car would go up and over it. She likes the idea of crushing cars with road rage drivers

    Well the Gamblers over for me and we made it home. The car layed down on us half way through the first day, we gambled and lost but it was still alot of fun.... The Gambler is one thing every car lover should do in his life, it's cheap and alot of fun..

    Sorry to hear that she gave up on you on the first day... Can you run the same car again next year, or do you have to start all the way over each year??
