Looks like a blast! But, Joe! No over-the-shoulder vids this time?!? :cry:

Thanks Jim! No GoPro video this time. Got lazy.
Im planning on some upgrades this summer. Im considering a set of AFR heads with a roller cam and maybe another 1 inch lower. If that happens then I will for sure have some GoPro video next time!

My buddy Omar owns a 64 Cyclone that will eventually get the road race treatment. He’s a young guy and has the bug. You know them young ones always have their phone or camera handy. So here’s his vid of that last track day. Enjoy!

Found Omar's channel around this time last year when he was trying to get his FE together for the Galaxie.
It brought back a lot of memories for me, so I started binge watching. Got real pumped when he found his Cyclone!
Tell him to forget Tom Cotter and get the Cyclone built before the Galaxie :P :lol:

Thanks guys!
Yeah Omar has a few projects going at once. So he bounces around. His cracked 428 really bummed him out but I think he’s recovered now. His Cyclone is gonna be cool once it’s done!
