Default Mart's Old Rusty: To the Drags!

So in a natural followup to my previous thread:
https://www.fordbarn.com/forum/showthread.php?t=261605
Here's Old Rusty's latest adventure, a trip to the VHRA Vintage Nationals.
We had a great drive there, lots of runs and met up with lots of old friends.
Thanks to Neil Fretwell and the VHRA for putting on the event.

Please let me know what you think, leave a comment, click like and subscribe if the fancy takes you. It's good to get feedback as it does take quite a lot of time and effort to make the videos.

Thanks a lot.

Mart.

Thanks for the ride Mart. I know well the work it takes to edit raw video down to something watchable. Looks like the weather co-operated and the old roadster made a good showing. Pretty sure you would beat my Merc in the quarter mile. :-)

That was a great video Mart. Looks like you were in the lead on your runs, not eating anyone’s dust!
