|We took a plain 'ol Healey 3000 from this state....||However, we forgot to allow for the effects of all this extra speed that we now could carry into the turns. This was brought to our attention as we entered turn 1.......|
|to a state of the art vintage race car....||As we started to earn the big $$$, we went out and bought the biggest and best transporter we could find. Unfortunately it didn't come with any ramps, so we had to again revert to Plan B1....|
|Once we had it setup properly, we then went racing. However, since we blew all our $$ on beer, we couldn't afford the entry fee. Unfortunately our enterprising approach to solving this problem didn't work quite as well as we hoped......||Some of earlier experiences led us to believe that we might be well advised to invest in some driver protection. After making discrete enquiries, a reference was made to somebody called "Snell". What type of a name is that? Were we going to depend upon tests carried out by some good 'ol boy from up North - no way bubba! So we embarked upon our own safety tests, starting first with a helmet test....|
|Sooo, we had to go Plan B, and sell some of our hi-tech body panels. This got us in to the track ok....||Then we continued on with our fire-protection safety....|
|As our skills started to improve, it became apparent that to win races we had to improve the aerodynamics, so when everyone else was on lunch break, we "borrowed" some bodywork....||Now that we were a first-class race-team we even could afford an award-winning Pebble Beach concours paint job....|
