Got a Demo-derby tonight

I can't wait to go. My friend and I have been working on our car non-stop for the past couple of days tryin to keep the hood down. We only get 4 strands of wire. No chains. So thats kinda dangerous for us. I'll have my girlfriend with me down by the pits while I'm waitin to line up, and my friends in the grandstands with the camera. I'll be back late tonight with pictures for you guys. It's my girl's B-day today so I wanna take home that trophie for her.

doubt it. It's nothing to really be proud of. It's already got frame damage, smashed up rear end (From the last derby I was in) and some other shit wrong too. Personally I'd just be happy to make it through the event. My tranny is DEAD.

My damn Lincoln took a shit on me when we were loading it onto the trailer (Wanted to drive it to get the feeling of it) so I took my back-up car that I had for next year's derby. 95 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme 2-door. It ran pretty damn good, considering I was up against a few full-sized 80s boats. But I got knocked out reletivly early. I have a few pics and some videos, but I don't feel like uploading them yet. Tommorrow after work I'll get them up for you guys. Still kinda pissed my Lincoln did that to me. I wanted to use that 5.0 sooo bad. Oh well. Get a used tranny and I'll be running it next year. I actually got bruised up a bit and smashed the f*ck outta my right index finger, and I have a crapload of scratches from working on the Cutlass, but besides that, and a bit of whiplash, I'm all good. Took home no money, no trophie, but I gave my GF a $400 bracelet today anyways. All in all, a good day. And I completely forgot to take before and after pics of the car for you guys. Sorry bout that. Pics up tommorrow.

Picture. My Cutlass just after I had to stop. Damn radiator...



Blame my friend Jack for how blurry it is. I got a few good hits off camera, and damn near lost my helmet. He did get a couple of good hits on camera. seemed like he was concentrating on a brown wagon though. Oh well. Videos and most/the rest of the pictures after work...
