fishslayer143@yahoo.com doesn t have to be really fast to look good ! tho, its good if you can have both..its nice to know what she will do ... if you can get in the 13 s , thats respectable.. My C5, on its best day, only runs a 13.20...Don t know exactly what my C3 will do now.. however,.. it is , lets say, "considerably" faster !!

PalmBeachVette76 Didn't drive the vette but this was a Pro event only. They had been here all week but the general public was allowed to come out Friday and Saturday. Glad I went friday since there were less cars running saturday night but the crowd was twice as big.

Luckily on February 12th, they're having Hot Rod Sunday. It's a car show and special event that entry in the show gets you one pass down the track, so a group of 3 or 4 of us are going.

I have a set of Stainless Side pipes ordered and on the way so I'll have them installed by then so the old girl should sound fast but I have a feeling the time slip is gonna throw me under the bus. If it runs a 13 I'll be happy.

Winter Warmup Palm Beach International Raceway

It's that time of year again. Most of the country is having winter and down here in South Florida we are in between summer heat waves. So, the boys from NHRA decided to come back to sunny, warm South Florida to test their new parts and setups. They opened practice up to the public Friday and Saturday.

I hit the track alone today to take photos and videos so tomorrow night I can go free of electronics to enjoy the show with my wife and another buddy from the forum.

It's been 20 years since I've witnessed the Top fueler's in person and all I can say is, this is what the true definition of the word "Awesome" is. Not something neat that happened and you overuse and incorrectly use the word. These cars leave you in "Awe" of what you saw, smelled and felt.

Here are some photos and video links for your viewing. Everything was shot with my Canon EoS Rebel T1i dslr camera except the sign at the speedway which was with my Motorola Droid X smartphone on the dash mount.
