Nice kill. That would have been an awesome feeling

Well it sounded pretty good... Whatever it was...It was still a very clean example of a late 80's firebird. I will give him his respect on that...

.....i wish i had a ST.
Dude he was super pissed... He asked me if I had anything done to my car before we raced and I said... "only an Intake" and he was like "Ok cool this should be easy!" haha....

Then after... he's all pissed off mad at the world like... "Were you being honest with me that it only has an Intake???" all raged and shat...

Thanks... She was riding with him down the track during the race too! You know she was in the passenger seat just sitting there like... you are no longer a man.... you are a vagina.

It was fun... I tried to race some Vtec's that night but nobody wanted to run against a Focus... One guy did but turned Chicken S**T and backed out just as we were about to pull up to stage...LOL

LOL... I wouldn't ever want to picture myself as one...

And ya I wasn't really sure how bad I would beat him but I figured I would from the get go, having raced a 95-97 V8 Auto Firebird and one before as well... (buddy at work)

I'm going to try to get him to come out to the strip sometime so I can film that kill too... Closer race... but a good kill to have on Tape!
