They used to be street legal before we stripped them. The top car has a 302 in it. Front wheel drive. Wifes car 6 cyl..FWD. Friends car 8 cyl RWD but we welded the rear end to make it posi-traction. We actualy drive them to the derby. Its about 5 miles. We just put a vehicle in the front and back of the pack.


The dobie (bubba) is the biggest baby in the world. He turns 8 today. I have had him since he was a pup. He is very intimidating till you realize what a wimp he is [:D].
Best dog I have ever had.

My Dobie Sasha was the same way. People were scared as hell of her when they first saw her. All she wanted though was to lick your face and have a good pat. The biggest couch potatoe you ever saw.

Hmmmm, sayings hu....I got some of these off a google search:


Car service: If it ain't broke, we'll break it.

Dain bramaged.

Floggings will continue until morale improves.

Forgive your enemies...but REMEMBER THEIR NAMES!

Friends come and go, enemies accumulate.

Friends help you move. Real friends help you move bodies.

Gun control is being able to hit your target!

"Cat: The other white meat!"

"Cover me. I'm changing lanes."

"i souport publik edekasion"

Have you laughed at a Ford lately?

Warning: I brake for hallucinations.

Do Not Wash - this vehicle is undergoing a scientific dirt test.

Get any Closer, and I will eat you

Honk if parts fall off!

Drive it like you stole it.

My son is an honor student at the State Correctional Facility.

Honk if the twins fall out.

For where we run the cars FWD is an almost must unless you can get a car from the 70s. They go crazy wetting down the track so it turns into a mud pit. I have seem many people get stuck as soon as they drop the flag. When that happens the only thing they can do is sit and have watch everyone else. At least they have a front row seat.

I like the "Honk if parts fall off"

Also my friend is going to mount a camcorder to the top of his car. Can anyone tell me where I would be able to post the video so I could link it to here. Or is it possible to just post the video here without having to got thru a different site. Thanks
