Default a video of me... when I was fat :(

I don't think that I've ever posted this one before. It's one of my many car videos and you can see me at :50, well actually you see my gut around :48 then I finally make it into the picture.

Mike you didn't look that fat, but then you were in the distance and I had a really hard time taking my eyes off the car, I am a huge Mustang fan and that one (though not as old as I want) is georgeous.

thanks. How old do you like them? I have a Reef Blue '93 LX 5.0 Trunk that was super clan. It was truly a badass car that I should have kept. I've searched for it for years and located it a couple years back. YouTube - ‪01gt46's Channel‬‏

Letting it go was one of my many regrets in life.

haha, post it up. The bad thing is when I quit drinking, the beer gut stayed.

I never could get a clean pass out of it. On slicks I would launch it too aggressively and it never failed that the track was poorly prepped and I'd blow the tires off. On drag radials I'd have to baby it. I went an 11.7 @ 121 babying it all the way down the track. The last time out, they weren't running times and had zero track prep. I have no idea how fast it went but it trapped on the revlimiter (6600 rpm) in 4th gear (which is 128 mph). I have video of that run and you can see white smoke coming from the tires when shifting gears 1/2 track (100 mph). The car was NASTY on the street. Not that I condone that.

The crazy thing is one of my worst track days (programming issues with the computer) I ran my worst times and slowest 60' times and still lifted the front tire (got video of that as well).

Whoa, that's some radicality there.

By prepping the track I guess that means laying down rubber first?

The Stang sounds awesome. Reminds me of NASCAR when they're in the garages working on the engine. You don't care much for following NASCAR do you? Not even Carl Edwards who drives a Ford?

I'm a huge fan of NASCAR. Jeff Gordon #24 and recently Joey Logano #20.

I don't dislike any of the drivers, except both Busch brothers.

They lay down VHT which is a glue-like substance. Frsh hot rubber from a big tire car helps too. I'm not big at NASCAR at all. I have some friends that are though.
