Well my son and I tried to make it this morning. Cleaned the girl up yesterday and had everything loaded and ready to go last night. Get all geared up early this morning to head out,  fire up the motor and all I smell is gas fumes and lots of it. Look under the carbs and No. one is pouring a steady stream of fuel out the overflow tubes I put on years ago. Shut her down and went back inside, its still to dark to work on her at 6:00 in the morning. Hope you all had a great time today, I had a few cold ones and toasted to your event, so maybe the next time. Poor baby is in the garage ready to be stripped for carb removal. Thank god I love working on her, maybe she just wanted some more attention than what I gave her last night.

All was not lost, some other folks made it.  ;)

Those overflows may have just saved your engine.  :great:

Enjoy the cold ones. :beerchug: :beerchug:
