Default 9th annual IHSFR

Good times this year @ the IHSFR

although my day didn't end so well, after the awards I headed down towards placerville to pick up a c-series windshield for $100, I was on hwy 50 headed east just before cameron park, my Travelall was running a little hot, thought I'd stop get gas & check things out next exit, a few seconds later my upper radiator hose blew! I was about a mile short cameron park, thinking I wish I had more you guys #'s in my phone, I called aaa, g & o towing picked me up & dropped me off @ auto parts store just a little over a mile away, I thanked them, already had the busted hose in hand I headed into the parts store, 1st thing they asked if I owned the green Jeep? I knew this was going to go bad, but they let me go in back pick my own hoses (since they couldn't find my Travelall or even 1100 in the computer, asked if a 241 was a dodge motor) any way I bought 2 hoses cut & spliced, filled the radiator, sprayed the cap with wd40, it was a little hard to start but seemed ok once I got it running, drove around the parking lot of the strip mall, everything seemed ok, filled up with gas, still hard to start but everything evened out once I got it going, s I got back on 50 headed east, I didn't May it far at all & things got loud!, lost power, it felt like I was running on 4 or 5 cylinders, & started smoking bad, thankfully the next exit ponderosa, was less than 3 miles & I was over 2/3 way the way there already, pulled in to chevron backed up to the curb, shut it down got out popped the hood, valve cover is pushed out on the driver side (look close in the pics) 3rd & possibly 4th cylinders, called aaa back, & 20 mins later I'm loading my Travelall on the g & o wrecker for the second time today, only this time they took me home to sparks nv
haven't pulled the valve cover yet as it was 7:30 & getting dark by the time I made it home.
Possibly busted a rocker or a push rod??
So it was great seeing everyone & taking a weekend off, & winning the 1st place Travelall trophy! But my allergies kicked my ass all weekend I guess I'm not used to all that green stuff, I live in the desert!
As for the Travelall I'll tear it apart, if its bad I'll probably swap in a v8, just another project to add to the list...

Let's see some pics from this weekend!!
