Kirk Wright apparently built a Model T engine that produced around 200 hp. Knowing this I asked him if there was a simple way to improve the performance of my Model T pickup. He suggested that I change from standard 3.63:1 to 4:1 gears.

“This has been on my bucket list since I was a kid,” says car enthusiast Jay Leno of driving the Hemi Under Glass, a 2,500-horsepower Plymouth Barracuda first introduced in the 1960s, with its massive engine situated in the rear of the car, surrounded by glass, known for the way its front end rockets skyward when the driver accelerates.
I’m not sure if anyone is interested but this is the day before the safety inspection and anyone that does participates can leave there car in the shop overnight
They don’t have to do the rally we can just have a small car show in the parking lot.
December 29, 1937 - February 20, 2017
Ken Hudgeon of Drumheller, AB, passed away after a brief illness on Monday, February 20, 2017, surrounded by family. Ken is remembered by his loving wife of 59 years, Anne; sons, Alfred (Maureen), David (Dena) and Kenny (Nancy); daughter, Tammy (Ode); grandchildren, Blair (Janine), Dylan (Krystal), Kyle (Tessa), Tyler, Adrian, Katelyn (Dustin), Courtney (Vance); great grandson, Benson; brothers, Bob (Norlene) and Don; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Ken was born in Drumheller and grew up on the family farm at Delia. After high school, Ken left the farm and joined Canadian Utilities/Alberta Power as a lineman and serviceman. He plied his trade for twenty years, spending time in Oyen and Coronation before returning to Drumheller. In 1977, he left Alberta Power to start his own company, Hudgeon Power Systems, which he led until 2009 when he retired and handed the reins to his eldest son, Alfred. Ken was also a successful competitive stock car racer for many years. He built and raced cars around western Canada with his friends Pete Benson and Dick Smeal. At the time, he was offered an opportunity to pursue his racing career in the United States, but instead chose family and adventures in the Drumheller valley. In retirement, Ken continued to pursue his passion for cars and could typically be found working on his latest project in his Munson shop or having coffee with his friends at Joe DeMott’s shop. Ken and Anne also enjoyed quading, camping and spending time at their house on Gabriola Island, BC. A Celebration of Ken’s Life will be held on Friday, March 10, 2017 at 2:00 pm at Knox United Church, 195 - 3rd Avenue E, Drumheller, AB. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ken’s memory to the Alberta Heart and Stroke Foundation of AB, #100, 119 – 14 Street NW, Calgary, AB, T2N 1Z6.
