I'm a motorhead...what can I say??  :laugh:
 
Glad you got a grin out of it...I tech inspected/ran pit-out/flagged a 24-hour Lemons race here at our local track http://www.hallettracing.net/...

Had a freakin' blast!  Got to black-flag the leader on the last lap (Race Control orders) for cheating by running a Spec Miata in disguise...race team wasn't happy to say the least and they stormed the flag tower...I just smiled and referred them to race control... :police:

I used to drive a 40s Dodge pickup on the road when I was 12-13 or so.. taking corn to the elevator to be made into cow feed, etc.  :grin: Naturally, I blew it up. After all, I was a kid.. <shrug>

No freakin way. The speed limit was 65, and I was doing all of that. In a beater pickup.. on gravel roads. To this day, "I can't drive 55."  :grin:
