The power of CF

This forum is the largest that I'm a regular on, and I'm curious of the power it might have. Channel 3 TV that serves Sacramento and surrounding Northern California communities has a poll for rating about 9000 businesses such as eateries, etc. There is a BBQ rib joint in Placerville (old name Hangtown) in the Sierra Foothills run by Kat and Jack, sailors from Hawaii that had a very successful BBQ place on the islands. They now cater to the local hot rod scene every 1st and 3rd Monday of the week during cruising season. For me a perfect mix, as I'm into sailing and have a hot rod. This is their place.....


That is a painting of my maroon Track-T on the left




Ok, if you are still with me, this is how the power of CF could benefit some former cruisers and current local business folks. Here is a link to vote for Hog Wild. Vote for Best Barbecue in the Sacramento Area - KCRA 3 A-List they are in 8th place right now, maybe some of the good folks here on CF can bump that up a bit.

Thanks.

Re: The power of CF

Why is a hot rod in the handicap parking space, when it doesn't have handicap license plates? Is that yours? Hmmm??

If you said truck camper RV and Chevy 3600 HD Dually I might bite!

No, mine is sitting next to this yellow shortened Chevy wagon.

The one in the handicapped spot belongs to a husband/wife team that both have hot rods. She is wheel chair bound and her ride has hand controls. Fun couple.

Re: The power of CF

Nick, it is a manual transmission, I guess you could.

Salty Monkey, its main claim to fame as a fun car is it only weighs 1790 lbs. At that weight a 100 hp would be fun, but like "Tim the Toolman" always says, " 'mo power". I have a Dart block 427 which dyno'ed 526 hp @ 5700 and 556 lb/ft @ 4400, so it is a hoot to drive.




PS, be sure to vote for Hog Wild here > Vote for Best Barbecue in the Sacramento Area - KCRA 3 A-List

Re: The power of CF

Nice ride deck officer, gotta love the HP to weight ratio. Course it can't compete with my 1 ton, '75 dodge caravan with a hopped up 318 it is up to about 326, dana locker differential, Grosses out at about 6,700 gvw, goes from 0 to 55 in about 15 minutes.

Re: The power of CF

captain58sailin,

It is my 1st experience in the under 3.5 lbs per hp club. Just got this engine in last month. Previous was a 383 stroker sbc at 320 hp, and the 1st engine was a 355 sbc circle track race engine at 386 hp. The extra 200 hp with the weight staying the same gives a whole new personality.

Be sure to vote for these cruisers turned business owners Hog Wild > Vote for Best Barbecue in the Sacramento Area - KCRA 3 A-List they are currently in 8th place but with the help of the CF gang, who knows.

I guess you will have to take my word for it, in this area they are the best. Poor Red's in my town of El Dorado used to be the best in the area, I ate there as early as 1961, but now that some cruisers have sold their boat and started Hog Wild, they are the best in town. Some cruisers (not me) are great cooks.

Re: The power of CF

This Memphis boy is scratching his head wondering what california knows about BBQ.
Memphis is the Meca of BBQ, and something that we take seriously. No matter for now, I gave ya a bump on the link. Good Luck!

PS. Nice cars, but I prefer 2 wheels over 4 wheels. Takes more balls to operate em!

Re: The power of CF

@ Blackoak I was thinking the same thing myself. From my part of the southern / east coast though.

Thinking we need more a field Q contest with portable trailer smokers. Love my brisket!

Thanks for the bump, and can't argue about Memphis, was just there last summer. But for our area, could you give a couple of fellow cruisers a vote in the poll?

Me on two wheels back in 1982.
The amount of lean might give an idea to the speed.

Re: The power of CF

I'll bet some of you have had Kat & Jack's BBQ ribs when visiting the Big Island. It was called "Billy Bob's Park 'n Pork BBQ", located in Captain Cook, Big Island, started in 1993. When I plugged this on the hot rod forums, we managed a climb to 8th place from 9th. I'm hoping the cruisers that want to see fellow cruisers make a go of it will vote on this poll for Hog Wild. Vote for Best Barbecue in the Sacramento Area - KCRA 3 A-List

Please.

Thanks
