Hmrfph, don’t like these cars on short tracks. Boring racing and too hard to keep up with.
Nothing less than a mile and a half for me.
My team is ready...
I’m wonderin’ if Young Mister Logano is about to get an ass whupin’ from somewhere......
You need to go to Bristol.
You will love it!
Did Logano hack into thatsracin.com?
Well I would like to tell you it works for me but... I can not tell a lie. I will give Joey a call
Thanks for the work I.C.B. I.
We are almost at 15 posts and T.B. still hasn’t posted a photo of his new puppy. Shame. I think we should have a chance to name it too. My choice is “lug-nut”.
J.J. on the pole. Whatdayaknow..
I would name the new T. B. puppy T. F. .... The F. is for Factory. The T. is for the product they manufacture.
After the talk on the last thread about the new puppy and car, I was going to start including a poster update as well as a winner update... “and last week, we all met tb’s new puppy, and were jealous of mtnclimber’s new car.”
I second the motion... hearing no opposition I call for a vote
Happydogx2 also got a new car, couple of years old, but pretty slick and pretty fast (I looked it up). Mine is due to arrive at the Port of Houston May 20 so I actually have to live a bit longer than that to have a new car :( Tubebender drove some pretty cool drag racing cars over the years. We should all pester him to post photos until he has to post them.
Do you own the Mike Bliss car???
Instead of the Mike Bliss DNQ car, I would be interested in seeing the 1970 Chevelle SS454 and know what it ran!!!
Hey MC, if you had a 1970 Chevelle SS454 would you post photos?
MC...I have an old Toyota 4-Runner that I named Beyonce. It is not “really” Beyonce, but just an old 4-runner that yesterday had a spark plug that somehow got loose and blew out taking the threads in the engine with it. I was coming back from Colorado Springs to Golden and the meeting ran late so I was happy I got towing to a repair shop near my home at the late hour. So I have to get heicoil insert kit and a new spark plug after making sure there are not old spark plug parts in the cylinder or other cylinder/head damage. So, here I am, MC, with an Audi S6 on order, but an old dead horse, Beyonce, not moving much till possibly Monday. Buying 2 new cars in the same year? My wife wants a new SUV. The 4-runner Beyonce has only had 2 starters, 2 batteries and 1 brakes in 220K miles before this. I am chalking it up to jealousy.
T.B., I am wondering if your 1970 Chevelle SS454 is not really a Ford Pinto with a leaking gas tank that you had derams of being fast and not “cherry bombing”? Photos would help to clear up this mystery!
And my wife is asking how I drove Beyonce so hard that she broke. I am sure I can get some good advice from you! Not sure what to name the Audi when it gets here.
Hey, thanks MC.
Yes, and to you too Mountainclmbr.
Correction, the S8 engine is 512hp.
The S6 has a speed limiter that limits top speed to 155 mph. Audi says top speed would be 190 mph without the limiter.
Sold mine for a down payment on some property in 1972 for 22K which we sold in 93 for 185K. My SS was dull tan or gold color
Wow, sounds like you did well with that investment!
Lots of spins in the Nascar Truck race today. Should be an interesting Sprint Cup
Oh, I have a Pinto picture and an AMC Pacer picture that I plan to post as some of your drag cars if you won’t post any pictures!
My granddaughter had a 77 Hornet with a worked over 6 but it wasn’t pink...
Weather should be good. I’m ready for some more short track action.
It's loaded with all the goodies for her including the sport pkgs. It has the same 300HP twin turbo my 335i has; the dealer said they could put a different chip in it to give her another 30-40 HP. I told em not on their life.
Nice SUV. I am trying to figure out what to do about an SUV that I can haul the dogs in. We are supposed to have a big snow storm coming in on Tuesday. Will need to haul in more fire wood after the race today.
Them were the days.
Some really nice neighbors got a “free” black lab semi-puppy named Tess. That had an old Honda Civic and Tundra truck. Within 3 months of getting the “free” puppy they have had to trade in the Civic for a Honda Pilot (SUV) to the tune of 35K for enough room for the kids and dog. Shots and neutering + two carpet cleanings and this “free” dog has cost them a bundle.
Anthem was pretty good...VMI Glee Club.
Still think someone, somewhere is gonna tear up Joey Logano.
Checking in. VMI...coulda been better but still OK.
Hey,,, don’t nobody get down on them Pacers. Had one and it was great...except for opening the doors when parked uphill, LOL.
“PLEASE start your engines”....???????
There are a few running around town here painted up with the logos for the bball team.
They should keep “Drivers...and Danica...start your engines!”
Oooo...mrs p6 better not find this thread...
Yup! The passenger door was longer and with the I beam inside ...woooo....mrs p6 got a workout and big biceps...hehehe.
Are all those seats in the backstretch usually tarped over?
I remember you were taking your car down to run in Vegas. What kind of time will it do?
saw the set up piece an ole Logano was smartmouthin..
that lad needs a tooth adjustment
Oh, Danica! How many times do I have to tell you?
Right pedal gas, middle pedal brakes....
2nd picture in the left lane...
one of these days she is gonna get that depends in a wad and get pissed and do some racin
