Picked up a new hot rod this past Friday. It had to be in orange:
She's a blast to drive!
Nice! What's the ride I see reflected in the door on that second shot?
License and Registration please.......
Your court date is noted at the bottom...
Just get’n ya ready
Congrats. Nice looker.
Be safe in that beast and enjoy it.
One of these would be my pick of of the new US muscle cars, only just over the new mustang though, not overly fond of the new Camaros or Corvettes personally but are really nice cars none the less, none of which I can afford now let alone the amount of tires I would also constantly need.
Congrats on it and enjoy it, very nice car.
What's more expensive? The car payments or the insurance bill? Nice to know you can break every speed limit in the country in second gear. As my Dad told me,
There's ways somebody in front of you."
Still, cool ride. Enjoy it.
Well, one either leads, follows, or gets out of the way!
I'm betting @Nubs isn't a follower! Lol
Every motorcycle I ever owned, about 30 I had to see what top speed was. I would head out to a desolate desert area. I thought I was one fast guy on my BMW S in the Panamint valley one morning, one valley over from Death Valley and not a sole in sight. The needle swept past 140, then the whole earth shook as an F-14 or 16 roofed me from behind not more than 75’ off the deck. He rose up slightly after he passed me and dipped both wings to me. I think he rode. I was humbled and I was sure not the fastest man in that valley that morning.
Then he came back and did it again
Speed is fun...
Yes it is.
Love the car, beautiful
My teenage years were the movie American Graffiti, Friday and Saturday night was street racing for money or at Irwindale or Orange County drag strips running money bracket. My buddies cars were fast, mine was a dog so I ran money bracket with mine.
Where's the Jack Plate on that puppy? Congratulations!
Yep, never leaves the blood.
When I was a kid, we lived about a mile from Mr Norm's Grand Spaulding Dodge.
I remember mom saying to dad "why did you pay so much extra for the bigger motor?"
Dad always replied "Safety honey. You never know when you need the extra power to avoid an accident."
He would then give me a wink.
I listened to my dad I guess! Lol
Love to hear the whine of that screw as it comes at you. Then you hear that exhaust note as it passes. Visibly and audibly gorgeous. And love the color. Love the black accents.
Congratulations @Nubs , she's a beauty
Is that a Hellcat?
When I was 16 I was busted drag racing a friend's brother. His dad called my dad and my ride to school the next day was not what I was expecting. He was telling my oldest brother about it, how bad it was, etc. My brother's reply was " Get to the important part, did he win or lose?". That didn't go over well either.
p.s. I lost that one. Mom's 64 1/2 Mustang against his GMC pickup. He got me off the line. However, his dad told my dad what he should do to punish me. That saved me as no one told my dad how to raise his kids.
Awesome. And thank you for taking off the yellow edge protectors on the splitter. Drives me nuts when people leave those on.
I've had all kinds of fun cars over the years, and there will be another soon, I can feel it. I'm vacillating between another Miata, which is the absolute king of per-mile giggle generation and can make a run for milk an absolute blast , and a proper American muscle car. I feel like we're near the end of an era and the big V8s are one their way out due to regulation. There is nothing else like a big American V8. The Camaro is my least favorite aesthetically but is apparently a proper sports car in a muscle car body. The Stang is cool but to me lacks the burly presence. Challenger is definitely the most killer looking. We'll see!
