The guy in that video isn't by chance you, hobo, is it?

posted by  Zalight

Negative. You don't think I'd do something like that on a public road, do you?

Thats why I was asking. :laughing:

This (http://www.goinpostalracing.com/videos/superdrifter.wmv) is a drifting VW. :wink2:

And this (http://www.goinpostalracing.com/videos/ouch.WMV) is a hurt VW.

That first one was pretty cool, you ever try drifting Hobo? (on a track of course). The second video is kinda sad, too bad it didn't show the car AFTER it was done crashing.

I've never done any official drifting in a car. On the other hand when I lived in California I used to race Speedway (mms://69.93.51.164/speedwayVOD/auburnnationals/event23bfinaledit.wmv) motorcycles. Does that count?

Its close enough lol, looks pretty cool.

Are they chanting something in the background or is it just me?

I posted that ferrari vid, like ...4 days ago.

Are you by chance driving one of those bikes?

posted by  chris_knows

Negative. That was the 2005 USA Finals in California. Keep in mind, I USED to live there.

posted by  vwhobo

Yeah...I wasn't sure of the year though...

Got any videos of you driving one?

posted by  chris_knows

That was 20 years ago before the average joe had a video camera. Besides, except for a few that slipped through untouched, my ex-wife destroyed everything of mine that looked like a picture as part of our divorce... Even stuff from when I was a kid.

Here's a scan of one of my cars that didn't get destroyed from about '86.

Sweet rims :hi:...kinda look like spinners :smoke:...

Rims? Please, give me a break. :banghead:

Nice looking Beetle you had there Hobo. Not sure about the 'bra' but I think the colour and the wheels go nice with the car. :thumbs: Too bad she's not still around (the car, not the the ex).

posted by  car_crazy89

Yeah, the bra looked like crap. It was early morning, cool and it just came out of the package so it was wrinkled as hell. By the time we got to Vegas it was looking preety good though. Gotta keep the rock chips off the fresh paint. That's why I don't show cars anymore.

posted by  vwhobo

Oh well, still looked nice. You can't stop the inevitable (rock chips in fresh paint) with a daily driver. Rather have a go anywhere daily driver then a show goin' trailer queen.

What? I like the wheels :doh:...

posted by  chris_knows

That background looks new mexico-esque there hobo. Where was that taken?

posted by  Zalight

Lame.

posted by  PontiacFan27

yeah, now you got it ... wheels.

posted by  windsonian

Ohhh...I got it...I don't find a very big difference between the two, :doh: but if it's wrong, I won't be making that mistake again...

Apple Valley, California.

man that vw crashing was a bit painful to watch.

posted by  speeder

Oh...That's what new Mexico looks like, Miles of flat land interrupted only by the occasional hill and tiny little juniper bushes.

posted by  Zalight

That's what New Mexico looks like where you live. Where I used to live in Clovis, it just looked like dirt and cattle.
