Howyadoin,

Salem, Mass. checkin' in!

I sent up a trial balloon about a New England meet on caddyinfo, but there didn't seem to be much interest unfortunately. It could be a really cool thing. Maybe a meet near N.E Dragway, followed by a little 1/4 mile de-carbonizing treatment? Or not, maybe a nice park or something with a picnic ground... Swap parts, swap ideas, swap B.S., whatever... There's a lot of options available, but now would be the time to start planning because the good places get booked early. If we could get say 10-20 people, that would be fantastic.

Whaddyathink? Even if you think it's a crappy idea, say so. I work with musicians, I'm used to criticism :)

Hey Guy!

Another local here (wista'). We should start a local/regional (support group!)lol
Keep me posted on any meets. I was going to bring up the idea for the SummerNationals, that they hold here every July.
But sooner would be good too! We seem to have quite a few within (100-75 mi) radius.

:burn:

Howyadoin,

I took a look at NE Dragway's website, and their "Street Nights" are Wednesday and Friday nights. Gates open at 5PM, racing from 6-10PM. I would figure Friday to be the better night for all concerned. Any weeknight is going to be tough for people, especially those further away.

If you really want to get heinous, we could go to Hudson Speedway on a Sunday afternoon or evening (depends on the time of season) for the 1/4 mile oval "one-on-one spectator drags". These can be rough-and tumble sometimes, but they are an absolute blast! The run to Turn 1 can be an adventure... Gotta bring a helmet, a registration and have working seat belts, that's about it... If we talk to the track owners we might be able to have our own bracket, so to speak, and just run each other in eliminations. There's also Star Speedway, right next to NE Dragway in Epping, NH, they run Saturdays I think... Star's nicer than Hudson for facilities and such, Star and Hudson are both owned by the same guy last time I checked...

How about a potential date, like Sunday, July 18th at Hudson or Saturday, July 24th at Star? If we get enough response, I can talk to the track management about having our own bracket. Some sponsorship money (nudge nudge) would grease those skids a bit, too. Money talks, and some guaranteed income for the track instead of just my promising a big crowd would make life easier.

Any thoughts? We could have a meet prior to going to the track, or just meet at the track. There's a grass parking lot area up a hill from the track that's not bad, but it can be dusty, and I'm sure people will want to show off their rides before they get dusty, right? There's a shopping mall right off the exit from I-93 for Hudson (exit 4, FYI) with burger joints and such, nicely paved. That might work...

So that's my $.02 for the moment... Comments?

I will also be going to N.E Dragway this spring to race my caddy, planning on racin with my stock intake and then another run with my 100% custom intake in the works as we speak. Hopefully some improvement. I go to the dragway about once a week or as much as possible.

Sorry i've neglected this thread, i've been pretty busy. Im looking to get someone to cut out the old apron on my caddy which is pretty crunched in and weld a new one in. I figured some of you guys may know about it, cause its hard to find cadillac enthusiasts in the area. I remember when i used to get made fun of at my school for driving a "grandpa car" (till i showed them how much power it has =) ) but im slowly gaining more respect, and i want to get her back on the road. Once i get her running once again, i'll try to get something going at the Dragway. I wonder how much it would cost to get Loudon for a day? Wishful thinking. Imagine a caddy race? Keep this thread alive.

Havnt checked back to this thread in a while, but NewEngland Dragway is where i plan on spending much of my summer haha
At NED you just need a drivers licence...do those other places require you to be 18? cause in MA we have crappy JOL licences till 18 (time restrictions, increased fines if your pulled over, etc.) which is fine at NED but i dunno bout the other places. Shouldnt be a problem, but i'm not positlve. I'm definatly in on some drag racing up at Epping though
Gotta be after June 22 though (cause thats when i get my licence, haha)
Anyone who wishes to venture down to Chelmsford durring the summer there are some nice cruise nights around here (Kimballs which is ALOT bigger...mostly older cars, Spindle City Corvettes at Drum Hill which is ALOT smaller but more fun IMO. Kimballs would probably not let us meet on the show area, but SCC's @ Drum Hill would be no problem.....cause its just in a small parking lot behind Burger King.
I'd like to meet some cadillac forum'ers.
And btw to RBRaczyk...what town? lol
Wilton is where my cousins live, and yeah...talk about hick town. Chelmsford is where i live, not Lowell....
And yeah, I've been to Phantom fireworks in Hookset i think it was......but due to location, Alladins is where i usually have to buy.
BTW, in Amherst or that area a while back there was a little run down building with a few classic Porsche's outside....know anything about that place? Sorta odd seeing two old Porsche's in an old building and a silver 365 spyder outside.....
