Re: Can somebody shed some light as to what these people are thinking?

Oh it definitely looks like fun. I guess i was just surprised to see it being done with nearly 100 year old cars.

Re: Anyone running a quiet 6v electric fuel pump?

I have my pump mounted underneath the car on the frame rail. I can clearly hear the pump over the car idling. Are the airtex pumps quiet?
