500 members .. $1000.00 each ?
we can own a drag strip !
I am in for $1000
Its somthing to think about , It could be done id kick in 1000 . Thats a lot of partners,all 500 could move there and we could build houses and have a drag strip for the weekends lol
I'd look into the zoning first. The map show what appears to be suburban housing nearby, probably what got the strip shut down in the first place.
does it come with a Lawn mower?
damn, I shouldnt have wasted my money on ice cream tonight. I loved that dragstrip.
Last time I was there was 98, seems to me that the housing was getting pretty close.
No , what shut the track down was poor mgt
and, about 3 years ago, there was a bad riot, shooting on
The track was never able to survive that foolishness
Yea you better check into it b/c there fighting a few dragstrips around here that developments have surrounded. It's BS the strip was there first. If you dont like it doont build there.
guess you would have to check into the laws but I'm sure its still able to run as a track
If it couldn't survive before ,what makes you think it would now?
Looks like it needs a lot of updates..and some bleachers wouldn't hurt..
better bump that 1,000 up to 1500.
Let me see, 500 houses on 93 acres..plus pits,plus track and tower...
hmmmmm.... let me think about that one !
Texas drag strips are none too fancy ..
And I'm sure it needs some repair , yes
Like I said, there was a shooting there a few years ago and no one would return
Its just a idea, does not mean its a good one
Q: How do you become a millionaire in drag racing?
A: Start with a Billion.
OK, sorry, old joke...
Sounds intersting but I think if there's been trouble before.. wonder how many cars it had on any weekend?
It would still have to sustain itself financially..
everything is a gamble. I'm in for a g.
i was kidding about living there or building houses
before you start jumping in..there is a shit load of legalities for a partnership of 500 owners..
especially when it comes to death and divorces..
still sounds interesting..
can I come play in the winter months?..LOL
Count me in!!!..... 499 other equal partners.......I sure can't imagine any problems
We have just over 46000 members times ten bux each......Hmmmmmm.......King Ryan in the kingdom of HAMBsylvania
Don't knock that idea about having houses on the property..It's a GREAT idea..maybe not 500, mind you..but an area for racers will gaurantee participation.. $$$
Owning part of a drag strip.... sounds good
Geez, In SoCal 500K wouldn't buy a small vacant lot.
I could live there...really!
Put in a kart track to go with the strip......ooooooooowow
Where do I send my grand?
Big Dad thinks outside the box! Nothing wrong with that.
I 'll put in a grand if they organise the shipping to Sydney
Big Dad .. Big Dreamer
But man, would it not be the shit if we did it !
i'd throw in my tax rebate of 600 bucks when i comes in May
I don't know if you could run it as a 501-C BUT, if so its a write off
would it not be ?
Anyone know the legal mumbo jumbo with that ?
far fetched, big legal hassles, much less insurance nightmares, but just for a minute, close your eyes, your getttting sleeepy, verrrrry sleeeepy and you are going to dream of a permanent home for the HAMB Drags!
Add a stage, camp grounds, concessions, BBQ pits, motorhome hookups, fire pits...hmmmmmm
Shit, the phone just rang and screwed up the whole dream!
I like this idea MORE all the time..
any honest attorneys on the HAMB?
Can those be said without a lightning bolt hitting you on top the head ?
Kidding , just kidding ..don't sue me for slander
