Well my friend hearsetrax, I think it's safe for me to say that I know what car you definitely

won't be purchasing when you win. Yes Nod ... LOL

~~~

After thinking about this a bit more, the first thing I would do is take the car I'm driving now to the mechanic.  She's been a real trooper for me, and she deserves to be fixed the right way.  She doesn't owe me anything, and it's the least that I could do for her. Sad Cheers  She's a 1996 Saab 900 S, and I think another light went out today, but this car has been such a trooper.  I'll never sell her, no matter how much money I have. I owe her that much. No Nod I mean I haven't even had the oil changed in like 4-ever. Her windshield is cracked too. Skeptical I got stuck in the snow with her last year and I pushed and pushed and pushed the engine and just about burned out the clutch.  She's still running for me! Even went through inspection. I've thought of having her painted red when I win. Smile She's forest green. Her name is Sandy. She's from San Franscisco, and she was made in Sweden.  She's been around the block or two. Patriot

one of the best things our new gov. did was revamp our useless inspection system.

way to go big guy ! Thumbs Up now lets get rid of the front lic. plate.

    You sound like you wish you had one !!!  Anyway , thats your opinion , mine is a little different .

    Blackie, The only thing that I don't like about your car is that it only goes 185 mph. Green laugh

    I know a car saleman who took a test drive in a Corvette with a potential buyer.  The buyer lost control

    of the car and went off the road into an enbankment on a sharp turn. I'm not sure if he hit anything else,

    but he did quite a bit of damage to the car, and they both ended-up at the hospital as outpatients. TwitchTwitch

    The good news is that after all was said and done the man still bought the car. Thumbs Up

    But if you ask me, that was one tough sale. Oogle

      Thanks Karinda !!    Maybe thats the reason you have to prove you can buy one before a test drive and not out to take a joyride .

      Strange the guy bought that wrecked one and not a different one . I think when a car is wrecked it isn't the same car anymore .

       

       Good Luck,

      Blackie.

        Maybe they need to be sure that people can actually drive first. Idea The car was practically a brand new trade-in at a high-end dealership.  There weren't anymore vettes for the man to buy, at least not there. But kidding aside, that was one stand-up guy if you ask me.  He still bought the car! That was very decent of him. My cousin has a vette and when I see him I'm going to ask him what model it is again. He took me for a ride in it a few years ago. That car has A LOT of power. It's also an attention getter. When we stopped at a light there was a young woman in the car next to us that kept looking over at my cousin. Cool I was trying to slump down in the seat so she wouldn't see me. Wink His is silver. Thumbs Up

          They do attract attention Karinda .  Even after having 2 of them , i still look at them as they go past me or I go past them . Usually them passing me though . A lot of people take pictures when you run into a store also . You come out and people are snapping pictures with the cell phones . Silver is nice also . Black is hard to keep clean , also Metalic navy blue ( my older one ) .  You should ask your cousin to let you take a spin in it . You may end up buying one .

           

           Good Luck,

          Blackie.

            " save the wave " does anyone still say that ?

            when 2 vettes passed each other in oppisite directions, you always waved to other vette.

            used to have a 78 .

            best freind from way back has a 61.

            its a baldwin custom .

            it's been sitting in his  garage since 75 .

            he thinks possums might be livin in it .

              They always wave at each other Haymaker. Both of those are nice  even if possums took up residency .  They can be evicted. Should have kept the 78 . I dont like the 80's and some of the 90's

                  If I won the powerball and it was big enough, I would love to run a part time NHRA top fuel operation.  That has always been a dream of mine LOL.

                      interesting, i'm guessing this can be done for less than a nascar operation ?

                      used to race on the street,south philly back in early 70s.

                      i can remember them building the vet(stadium) at that time.

                      eagles 24

                      dallas 00

                      don't let up.

                      dallas is dangerous.

                        Cost to run a NASCAR operation: 15-25 million (Some as high as 30 million).  Obviously, much less if you have a sponsor.

                        Cost to run a full-time (23 event) top fuel operation: 3-6 million.

                        Cost to run a part-time top fuel operation: 1.5-3 million.

                         

                        Of course, if you can get a sponsor you can drop that cost by a ton.  I would rather run a part time schedule because a full-time operation would seem too much like a job to me.  You wouldn't be able to run for a championship, but I'll leave that to the likes of Don Shumacher Racing etc....
