SHOW CLASSES: #32 - 1994 – pres aurora/alero. Whoo hoo, our own class!
If they don't get 8-12 cars in that class, I could see them combining with "#33 1989-pres all models not listed elsewhere"
"The car show was reorganized in 2004. This is a judged car show using an independent judging staff with no bias to club affiliation or make or model of Oldsmobile. All cars will be judged on body, paint, chrome, engine compartment, interior, undercarriage and trunk compartment.
All show car classes - will be kept to around 8 to 12 cars. First and second place trophies will be awarded. If a class has less than eight cars, it will be combined with the next appropriate class. As the show gets larger, or if a large group of cars turn out for a particular class, classes will be broken into more years or hardtop vs. convertible, etc."

Got back last night late from Norwalk Raceway. Ran a best of 13.13 with the wagon in the quarter. I picked up a new set of 28" BFG Drag Radials and my quarters are just covered in rubber. I wear it like a badge of honor. ;D
I saw one classic Aurora in line on Sunday. Looked a lot like my car but with more miles... he had a time of 15.8 and that seemed to be where he was running.
Just for giggles, a tenth is about a car length in distance so for a rough estimate if I were to bracket race the above Aurora, my light would be green when his Aurora would be approx. 25 car lengths ahead. I'd then get to run him down and if we were close to our times, we would pass the finish line near the same time. The one closest to their target time wins.
The Olds guys were in force over the weekend. Norwalk set a attendance record on Saturday with over 600 cars for a non-holiday event. They were racing till 5:30 in the morning. It was a little rough getting up Sunday! The car was erratic in time on Friday and Saturday but I finally got it together on Sunday. My last 3 passes were less than 0.1 second, total difference. I got to the 2nd round and lost to one of the pros that I hang around with. If my reaction time had been better, I would have beat him. I never red lighted and I didn't break anything so I'm happy about that.
I've decided to detune the wagon and turn it into my tow vehicle so I can get my drag car down there next year (1970 Cutlass Supreme). If I can convince my wife to drive the Aurora down, I'll put that in the car show. They hand out NICE trophies! Then I can bracket race the Aurora too!
