Oh man... This is right up my cat-backs!
It's everything involved.
It's the surge of energy going through your body when you're doing 184 mph down a clean paved road on stock tires!
(10 miles in 3m 13s)
Yes... I know... Very stupid idea, but...
Knowing those tires can handle the pavement but feeling in the back of your mind that any split second could be the last second. ever!
- all it takes is just one small piece of pavement to give you one hell of a bad day.
The tunnel vision - I thought there was only one! Zoned Center!
It's how white your knuckles get on the wheel, knowing that no matter what happens, that wheel isn't going to get ripped out of your hands. As for
the rest of the car.....?
It's the growl of the exhaust! Oh man... Nothing excites me quite like the monstrous growl and spit of the exhaust on my cars.
Turn on some metal - I could cruise forever. As long as cruising means infinite gas, no tread wear and minimal speed of 100mph. The more aggressive
the metal, the heavier my foot.
It's being able to feel like you're part of the machine as you clutch, shift and throttle! You instantly become one with the machine.
Is it weird that I think my cars love me back? They're like plants. If you talk to them nice, they purr right on along. If you get bitchy with
them, they get bitchy right back. If you treat her like a dirty little sl... *evil grin*
My cars have also been more reliable than any woman I've ever dated. Though the 3 best gals I've ever dated loved muscle as much as I.
I gotta show them off...
My Babies... My Betty's
This was my first big step into sub 4 second cars. I've never turned back since:
2008 C6 LS3 Corvette (Betty)
- 436 HP (3.9s)
From there... I was instantly addicted to Horsepower and mad Torque so I made a few changes.
My Back B!%(#
2016 Dodge Challenger Hellcat (Swamp Cat)
- 707 HP (3.5s - This car does 60+ in first gear!)
My Side B!%(#
2014 Z51 3LT C7 Corvette (Betty) - And I swore I would never buy a C7
- 460 HP (3.7s)
My Daily B!%(# (Blueberry - or Blue)
2015 Subaru WRX STI Cobb Stage III+ (-TGV)
- 308 RWHP (3.9s) - Crazy fun All Wheel Drive
I have an insatiable hunger for a C8 Corvette. I will happily take any 3LT model.
Unfortunately I don't make that damn much money! But hey... Who knows. Maybe the prices will have to go down a good deal due to our current
Thanks for the post!!
