    This year I think I will be going with a smaller tire. don't know were they came from but it was all i had for last year.
    Did a lot of changes to the car last year and the pocket got a little thin.
    This year i will be fine tuning to keep the Shaker in my rear view.

    And you didn't even have the decency to comment on how douchey I was for quoting myself......You guys are getting soft.

    There will definitely be a Shaker vs Furious race during Meltdown 2016,and it shall be awesome!

    Also on my dance card are:

    -Okie Doker (obviously)
    -Tickety Boo (Norb's been busy,this will be one to watch!)
    -Ron G's super clean gold Charger
    -That blue 63 Galaxie NSS car
    -Yesterday's Child (always wanted to race Ric & Marc and get a few pics)
    -Wrenchbender's mean lil Willys truck
    -anything that looks like it would have been in the lanes with "SS" written on the window in '65/'66

    You better get after that tuning Bob.....Cassandra already made me up a tombstone decal that says "62Furious"...;)

    We could talk about lining you up with the Prefect as well... Similar style vehicles - good for a photo op or two

    It's not a "Hit List" Ricardo,it's more of a wish list of cars I've always wanted to line up with....the Gas Ronda Mustang is on the same list....And we all know how giddy I get any time that car is mentioned...lol

    You just have to be blue-collar about it,and turn C-code 2V289 cars into R-code 8V 427 cars,and 318's into 413's and 426's:)

    That's the only way a working man is ever going to be able to afford that stuff ever again.

    What is the name of this militant wing of the Salvation Army?
    I think I've heard of it...

    Was it "YOLO Moparo"....?
    They're notorious for scaring little kids and old ladies everywhere.

    Here's a secret spy photo of two of them taken with a telephoto lens from a safe distance.
    Our files list these two as "Mopar Bob" and "Ron G".....;)
