"The future is now"
i think this was the most enjoyable thread i've seen in a long time..
A classic example of where the term "bullet" came from.
Load up,safetey off, smoke 'em if ya see 'em.LOL
Dawn,thanx for the HHRR pics.
While we're at it anyone got any pics of the Champions Speed Shops/Sammy Hale antics?
Definately the wrong place to be in motion.
Sammy Hale at the 1999 CHRR
Not in motion and perhaps not old enough for here but probably the sexiest Comp coupe of all time.
Is this thing beautiful or what?
I like the stance.
So this thread gets bigger everyday,and some of the photos are interesting showing ingenuity in action.Here is some more but these were only last weekend in Sydney.One day these will be the classic shots that our grand kids will rave about.Keep on roddin'.
These cars are a little OT for here, but this is a video from late in November, of some local friends. The quickest of the bunch was the red and black camaro driven by my buddy Chris, it went 8.30's. But the ride of the day, was Chuck in the black 71 Camaro... I have no idea why he didnt roll the car over, or how he never hit the guardrail. It was crazy to see in person, and yes, I was one of the people hollering. -Joe
Cool video, I bet the guy in that 70 camaro had to chnge his shorts after that first pass!
