jimmy tooled thru the Pa. and the Ohio turnpikes --without incident :cool:
doing a peaceful 70 mph --somewhat back on schedule --
and none of his remaining 157 sausages were soggy :thumbsup:

but then --
(and this coulda happened to any of us red blooded boys- not just jimmy )

he heard --coming up HARD --from the rear & looking like a JET !!!
the tremendous sound that ONLY can come from a big // hot american V8 :-O :-O

...that ZR1 is an absolute beast!! Best Corvette ever built. I was considering it as my next car until I drove the Nissan GTR...It destroys the ZR1 in every performance aspect...still like the Vette though.

----------------------------------------

ok --so back to jimmys trip to the cali meet ::::::

we all know that indiana girls are sporty and generous -- :-)
the race began at 80 --at the bottom of a 2 mile hill

she gave him a 1/2 mile lead --
jimmy was ON IT !!!
with all 4 of his tiny pistons wacking away :w00t:

by the top of this same hill --she had done 4 doughnuts :lol:
and the poor old izuzu was 1 mile behind : :sadno: : :-P
-----------------------

but --was the race OVER ??
NFW says jimmy --as he blew by her --while she waited on the hilltop

' back in the day'

jimmy had earned a solid C+ in his 3rd grade science class -- :yes:
so he knew that rolling objects can often travel quickly on the long downhill runs
( even his 4 banger izuzu )

and he was smiling ear-to-ear as his speedo hit 143-146- 152 !!!! :w00t: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
--------------------------------

suddenly he heard FOUR simultaneous explosions
--his steering got tighter and his ride seemed lower :huh: :-O :huh:

the hottie flashed him at 188 mph --as he pulled into his pitstop........

FOUR FLATS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :thumbsdown: : : : :
---------------------------

was the race over ??
NFW -- :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

continued shortly

jimmy was discouraged :sad:

but --as all old brooklyn boys - there was NO quit in him :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

true --his dreams of wiping that show-off bitshe in the ZR1 were dashed :sadno:

but his much bigger dream --to drive his sausages to the cali meet -
were still alive :angelic: :drool: :angelic:
-------------------------

short of funds --but with plenty of time left ( 9 days )

he found a promising location --and set up his
SAUSAGES for RECAPS trade

(more to follow)

:drool: :drool: :drool:
yup --and that little rest-stop feast turned out be jimmys best move
on the entire trip :-)

the bad news was the cops kicked him off the big interstates :sadno:
you cant run recaps at speed -- :nonono:

so poor jimmy was still 2000 miles from cali --
driving west at 25 mph on country roads that havnt even made anybodies
GPS - yet : :lol: :lol:

then --like a godsend --his angel smells the sausages --
and pulls over

-----------------------

wait till you guys see THIS one :w00t: :w00t:
:w00t: :w00t: :w00t: :thumbsup:

QUESTION:

Is anyone else bringing a Lasonic 975? I would like to compare it with mine ;-)

Everyone is so floored over this radio and I personally think the 935 and 951 kick it's arse....so I am just wondering if mine needs some work or something :huh:

One of these days I'm gonna make it to a meet. Unfortunately, at the time you guys are meeting, I have a family reunion.

It is more fun for me to go to Cali when the weather up here is lame, though, just sayin'.
