Went to bed 1am

Probably late night again prepping for the weekend. Wedding tomorrow night, wake up crack of creation to drive 2 hours to the field, setup, play, drink more, probably not sleep sat night at all, then do all the bs again sunday and drive back.

At least I'll leave a beautiful corpse.

Seriously. You'd only want the V8 is possibly 3% of the time when driving. I'd make that call too.

I love the styling of the new challenger, I've said from day one that I would get a V6 also, I have no place to drive a V8 to its potential and I dont want to risk tickets. I actually drove the V8 version that my friend has and it is a blast, but like I said, no place to use it since all of my driving is city, and the V6 has enough power for that. Plus all the insurance and gas savings like you mentioned.

I mean yeah it would be cool, but I traded a higher payment for a new car, better gas and insurance. The savings on the last two cover the payment. And it still puts out 305 hp. It's plenty fast, I'm not racing people though as it's not a v8.

But if you had the V8 you could race people and make MORE money... Seems legit.

Now that's a rock solid argument.

I tried to race someone once.

It was the first time I had raced someone, up until this point I practiced my shifting in open abandoned parking lots. I wasn't great at it since I had only had an automatic before this.

We were lined up ready to go, I had laid down pink slips since I didn't have the cash. The 1/4 mile lasted what seemed like an eternity and I used all the NOS I had and some how he managed to beat me by a hair, but I was all smiles anyway because I almost had him, when no one else had come close before.

He wasnt to happy that I had blown the gaskets on the car that was now his, but I didnt care because I ALMOST HAD HIM!

I lost the car but I EARNED HIS RESPECT and that's what mattered more!


after that I was pretty much his indentured servant, so I dont race anymore......

Sounds just like Brian racing toretto in fast and furious. Funnily enough that's almost the exact same plot line.....

Was bored, good for a laugh.

The real time I tried to race someone I got a speeding ticket.

The cop told me if we had both stopped instead of just me he would have given both of us warnings, since all we really did was take off fast from a stop light and I was doing 8mph over speed limit.

My buddy figured it was the ol' "he didnt have to run faster than the bear, just faster than me" deal and kept going.

Lol that's lame on his part. Too bad he didn't stop and you both get warnings. Haha!

I've never raced a car, I was a dirtbike kid so I had my fill of racing by the time I was 16 so I never wanted to race my car. Plus, I don't like paying to fix a car for something I ****ed up by being stupid, so that played a factor I'm sure.
