2015 STARTS WITH A WIN
Feb 12, 2015

Congratulations to Jody Lang for wheeling his Wagon of Steel to the win in Stock Eliminator at the season opening NHRA Winternationals in Pomona, California. There was no luck involved, it was all skill, baby. 6 round wins included a stellar defeat of reigning Super Stock world champ Peter Biondo by a scant .003 of a second. Nice job, Jody!

We've sent a bunch of engine parts to Dan Dvorak in Waldo Florida. He is going to create a high compression 426 for us to compete with in 2015. We hope to be faster than ever before. The NHRA has made some horsepower factor changes to the Max Wedge which will allow us to run lighter than ever before and we hope to take advantage. Wish us luck!

We still have some calendars and 2015 racing schedules if you need.


THE DAYS ARE GETTING LONGER!
Dec 22, 2014

The solstice has passed and the sun will set at 4:21 today here in the Great North West. In a couple of days I'll be heading down to the Lake Tahoe area for my yearly Christmas break with my wife's family. It is always fun to see my kids frolicking in the snow and eat lots of good food.

Here in the shop I'm currently doing the final body work on my '68 Plymouth GTX project. Anyone who's done it will tell you, body work takes forever if you want it to come out right but it's really coming together. Hopefully we'll be spraying it down in January and putting it back together shortly thereafter. We've got the 440 ready along with the 4 speed and the big Dana 60. As the project sits right now, you'll have to drive it sitting on a milk crate but we'll get that fixed too.

The 2015 calendars are out so let me know if you want one at gaffo@wagonsofsteel.com or snail mail po box 1435 Vashon WA 98070 or call 206 463 5017.

Happy Holidays!
