      I'm only half kidding. Race what you want, that's great. But to me, a FWD drag car will always *look* silly.

      I rest my case. That's so wrong it's not even close to being funny.

      Would you rather see a set of traction bars like that.. used to keep the chassis loaded..or a set used to keep the bumper from dragging by controlling the front end lift? Like this... like it *should* be

      I just plain hate neons.

      Anyone, I didn't have a camera at the time, but last december in southern Wyoming, I saw a black Dodge Ram SRT-10 at a gas station, among the 2 feet of snow and the single digit weather.

      Ralph Kosmides is THE man!

      I saw him years ago at the SCCA ProRally in Prescott, AZ. He was hauling ass along these tiny beat to hell access roads.

      Or any other rally car that's not commonly used over here in Europe. They look so out of place to me.

      Because their image is of a supercar manufacturer. So at best, being exposed primarily to their non farm products, seeing a lambo tractor is a little weird.

      I have to say that these are cool. I've thought about putting a Rabbit body on what amounts to a pipe buggy chassis since back when you could still by the Rabbit new. (I guess I should admit that I was only in my early teens then)

      There's got to be a video of that somewhere.
