I haven't been to the drag since my F-Body days back when I lived in VA. I'm like you, as I gotten older I've gotten more into appreciating all kinds of cars and enjoying the ride and unique experience of each. Although I still love to go to the cruise-in and BS with other gearheads.Juday wrote:I dont' take mine to the drag strip, as I have no desire to run it there. I've got nothing to prove to myself, or anyone else. I know it's fast and someone out there is always going to be faster. The ride, power and handling of my Z06 is what I like most. Occasionally I'll run someone on the street, stoplight to stoplight, but I don't even do that much. I just enjoy backroad runs with a club I belong to, just to show the Lamborginis and Ferraris that America can still hang with the best of 'em!
But back when I was in my 20's Camaro's trumped Mustangs. Until I owned a Mustang, then I got it. Then I had an Audi and I got the tuner scene some. I just love the automotive hobby.
I never understood trucks till I got into it. I think the guy who thinks only one type of car is the best, is selling their experiences short.
And mud slinging comes with it.
