Chasing a SS camaro

Had some fun today chasing SS camaro down the twistes . Dude was doing a helluva job of driving , but i could stay 6-7 car lentghs of him , until the curves then be right on him, i'm thinking when he seen this he decided to step it up a notch . which almost cost him . he braked hard in this curve then gassed it hard . did about 3 seconds of drifting , over steered it and spun it , but kept it on the road i pulled along side . but he took off back the way we came . had to go get some clean undies i'm thinking

twisties in illinois you ask......few and far between , but there are a couple country blacktops that can give car and driver a work out.

when the dude spun the SS i thought " whoa ,, stunt driver " but when i got close enough to see his face , that was fear in his eyes,, ,,, he got lucky

Whoah!!! Don't knock Ohio for twisties... up near MI yes, Ohio is as flat as a pancake. But in the opposing corner of the state things are very very fun!

Check it out: Google Maps

The 93 between Logan and MacArthur is a pretty good run. It gets even better if you branch off around the state parks through there. Some of the roads leading to Old Mans Cave state park are intense.

Anyways, hope I'm not thread crappin'. Actually, I'd like to get a bunch of people together this summer to head on down to Deals Gap and ride the dragon!
