Not only is Sarge grumpy and old Rory, but he ugly too!
Beth looks much better behind the wheel.

Seriously though I have been driving the P/SA convert the last two races at Joliet and this past weekend.

Nope, just FoMoCo, NHRA, IHRA, NMRA, NASCAR decals or none at all. I am not fan enough of any "stick and ball" sport to deface any of my vehicles with their teams decals.

Thanks to EVERYONE for all the support. It was fun riding. Now maybe soon (next week or so) I will be driving. I have much respect for the car, the speed and the sport. Right now I am just in awe of it all. But now the ooohhhhs and aaahhhhhs will end and the education will begin.

Thanks again. More to this saga coming soon!
