That black wagon looks like Cajun Ernie's. I was visiting with him a few weeks ago at a show near my house. He has a procharged LSx in that thing.

The talk of the weekend seemed to be the cars at the race track. We stopped by the Holly tent and were talking to the rep. who had his own Chevelle and went to the track. He said that another one of the guys that came with him was having carb problems also. He said that they filled the tank here with the premium and the problems began. After taking the carb apart they found this white gunky film all over everything. Now we put gas in here, but not til after the race track.

Is he the one that had the number crossed off on his car? He thanked everyone for voting for him the past 4 years and asked people not to vote for him this year.

That was a really nice car. I remember David talking about it. I like that he wanted to let someone else take home an award.

Ernie is a great guy and I love his wagon .You should see what he drives up in at the Heart Of Dixie Christmas party. He definitely gets your attention.

That wagon won People's Choice last year. With a different, smaller LS engine...
And a Top Three winner the year before in a non-turbo version.
Owned the "Shovelle" for a few years before that...do a Search on that '69...very cool.
I don't know if you were able to talk to Ernie...I've been fortunate to know him for quite a few years now.
Definately a character...

I tried to talk to as many people as I could, but because of the set up of the event, it is hard. And no one wanted to stand out in that heat next to their cars. I was one of them.
