      Glad you didn't hurt your car other than cosmetic. Let me know if you want to fix that chin spoiler. We probably can get that done here in a few weeks if you're ready.
      Ben gone from Vortex for nearly ten years... I must be getting old, cause this style of putting Corvette wheels or what not and stretching tires is a style I do not understand.

      We had a little of that last year when my E21 group went on a similar drive up to Saint Helens. Caught on camera @ 0:26



      I wouldn't be surprised if you were talking about this same spot.
      This is what sarcasm and snarkiness looks like, with a smidge of displaced smugness, and justified jadedness

      That's not the same spot. The spot he launched off of had spray paint around the dip. Joey went through it in the eurovan then I narrowly dodged it in Desiree's car and then he nailed it.

      It had been so long since I was on here I could not remember my user name or password. Pretty sure my new one is better... Thanks DJM for putting this together with such class and style. I can also thank you for my seriously bronzed left arm!

      It appears you are having a problem with the internet, not just this site.

      That link you're trying to give us is one for organizing your photos, not viewing them.

      This.

      Then maybe people would start building cars to be driven, not just parked. I loved the hell out of the drive through the twisties. That's exactly what I've been building my car for, so it was good to put it to good use.

      Other than the rock chips this drive was definately fun, what is the point of a car that just sits there, have fun with it and keep it as clean as you can is what I say.
