Like I was saying

I did a post yesterday about fixing up old stuff and making it better if necessary.
Here is a perfect example, here is and old farm truck which you would think is just another rusty relic.......
Notice the time on the board at the end and top speed.
This would be fun race against a foreign sports car snob.

  6. LOL, NOT the first one of those I've seen... There was one that used to show up at Pomona TOWING a race car, then get out there and turn low 11 sec times... The car was turning low 9 sec... :-) And none of the rice burner crowd wanted ANYTHING to do with that pickup after one race!!!
