    Sometimes you just got to do it

    You know we wrench on these damn things and pour enough money in em to send a bunch of kids through community college......so after wrenching the past few months....tweaking...tuning...more tuning....stubs...axles.....stiffy.... ....new trannie lines....balanced driveshaft....FE Alignments....balancing wheels....etc.etc.....and just going over her with a fine tooth comb....It is about 60f and the roads are all dry......about an hour of sun left...I took her out and just opened her up.....and let her climb....158mph.....windows down.....

    Damn it is worth it

    I got busted for 91 in a 65 a few weeks ago....just glad he didn't catch me a half hour earlier on the nice strait empty back road heading to the highway......130 did feel so good

    we all have had our rubs with jhonny law,i received me a ticket a few years back still paying for it,bet your ass that wouldnt go down like that again,he had no idea who i was or could have not even come close to catchin me,got on it at a light,some gal in a grand prix supercharged keep messing with me so I gave her a hole shot,left her sitting hit 45 let out she must have gone to 90 something cop went after her and let her go I pulled over thinkin he would go after her, he pulls behind me,then goes after her catches her and lets her go,give me a ticket for reckless ops,I will never stop again If I have the right chance. cop was getting gas and was out of his car.If i had thought he would have come after me I would have been in the next county before he got in his car.

    Had mine up to 100 on 287N coming to work this morning. Felt great. Gettin close to the wall and listening to the exhaust is its own reward.

    I made some 10 second pulls last nite,even with a passenger in the car,was worth the look on his face.those 120-130 pulls are fun,thanks again for all your help(you know who you are).

    I swear i got it up to 70 a few days ago ha ha. I need new o2s (says the SES light)

    I love a good "goose" every now and then as well...

    I think me and Sarge got it great...if i went home to the parents, there is nothing but a straight, dead road, i could do anything and no one would care. I could stop in the middle of the road, take a few pics, piss, get back in and do a burnout...still no one coming down the road.
