    Love this bit:

    "That’s when it happened. Amid the polite conversations of tire ratings and frequent V-12 tune-ups there came a rumble that seemed to generate from well below the earth’s crust. We hot rodders in attendance recognized it as the sound of a high-compression big-block Chevy firing up. The rest weren’t quite sure what was happening until R.J. Gottlieb backed Big Red out of the trailer, clunked the Jerico into First gear, and slowly idled the surging, barking, bright red ’69 Camaro between the rows of shiny new sports cars"

    Love it :D

    Big red has been doing the rounds for a while now. I didn't read the article, but it's a monster and runs in a race called Silver State, something like a 150 mile run where many of the cars can complete it in just over an hour. Drivers get killed every year and much exotica is trashed!

    "Big Red destroyed the 94-mile course in 27 minutes, 54 seconds, for an average speed of 197.99 mph and a radar-recorded 222-mph top-end velocity. That was in 1989, and the legend of Big Red had just begun."

    1989 WOW

    OMFG!! I SO wanna go see this!!!!!

    The image of some cocky boy-racer standing on his Civic's brakes at 150+mph is just too comical. I only hope none of the numpties that try it get killed!!
