Car Details: 68 pontiac firebird coupe project car,my aim is a street friendly,lightly modified pro.touring style.
Lowered ,mild body mods,400 cu in SBC engine, Muncie 4speed, 10 bolt posi axle,disc front drum rear.
68 firebird convertible ( long term project) Stock resto/mod style ,400 pontiac th350
Apologies to all the club, but yet again I suffered the curse of Speedfest.
Got out on the road early, car running well, onto M25 and about 5 miles before Chobham services got clouds of smoke.
Slowed down and limped into the services, opened the hood and found lots of oil all over the headers and a leak from the valve cover.
AA saved the day,but 2 years in a row !!!
I suspect a faulty pcv valve built up pressure and blew a gasket, will check it out when I calm down...

See, said he had a good reason.
Home on a flatbed, two years on the trot, how unlucky can you get.

So Oddball & blackstar made it, y'all know why firebird68 and myself didn't.
Who else was supposed to be there? :eh:

Oddball, where were you located (in relation to last year)?
Tried to identify from pic but failed.
We were further down the main path from he main entrance, just before the Speed Dome and first stands, pretty good location :)

Sorry to hear that! Either rotten luck or shoddy maintenance ;)
