    That's a shame. Opening it up to the Brand X cars didn't increase attendance enough?

    Very few if any of the brand X guys show up in the show field but a few do race. When they renamed it Muscle cars at the Strip they pissed off quite a few mopar guys that won't go back and now for the first time vendors lost money so it was a looser all the way around. The expense the track and staff is $30K a day so to show a car it was $75 for car and driver to help cover it.

    Oh man that is bad news. May be you can hammer it back down and weld her up with out replacing the pan. Mine had a hump in the back seat pan from where the exhaust pipe must have come loose or broke at one time was able to use a 2x4 pine board and a 5 lb sledge hammer with the handle sawed of short and beat it back into shape. Good luck buddy and hope you get her fixed. Russ. :kartman: Now where did I put that sledge hammer???? Mate.
