I think we just found the answer to the proverbial question "Why?" :lol:

Anytime a vehicle is this extensively modified, it is not going to be driven in any rain. It was meant for straight line acceleration, and it does this quite well I would suppose. It is not intended to be an all-purpose ride anymore. Your comments seem to reflect a resentment for any major mods to the car. The owner knew what he wanted to do with the car and built it accordingly. Nicely done. A fun street car.

Its not bad if you behave. I had a pro street Blazer, for a while, it was my only car. I was able to even drive it in 6 inches of snow with no problem.

"Behave" covers a lot of territory? I'm hearing Tiny Tim singing "Tiptoe through the traffic..." ;)
I've seen a guy enter the E-way in the rain & do a loop in the middle of traffic because he got on it just a bit too hard trying to enter a hole between cars.
I'm glad that you had a better experience with the Blazer.

It is Talladega race weekend and the weather in Alabama is terrible right now :(
I live about 20 minutes down the highway from the speedway and on racedays, I can hear the cars from my house. What an amazing sound! Oh, and go Jimmy Johnson :)

im a car fanatic !
i know we are down under but over the last 70 years or so we have had the odd american classic wash up on our shores!:)
the lines on the old classics are just stunning ! my favourite is the 1957 chev!
our holden brand cars have come out with chevy engines since about 1968 0r so! wich i think was the hk holden monaro coupe with the 307 cubic inch chevy engine!what a sound !
now we have our holden monaro that you guys call the pontiac gto!
we have the 5.7 ltr chevy engine in ours but i think you's in the usa have the 400 ci !is that right.
if it was legal to marry a chev i would!
and in the nascars! go jimmy johnson.:)

I'm pretty sure the GTOs come in a 5.7 and a 6.0 or 6.1, and supposedly the 6.0/6.1 is a hell of a lot faster. They're boats though, way too heavy to even take the 400hp seriously.

Yes, they come in a 5.7 in 04 and 6.0 in 05/06.

The 6.0 is faster, but not that much.

Leave the sense of humor in another suit, did we? :rolleyes:

i just hope that the taladega series is shown on aussie tv this weekend !
i seen on last nights coverage that for about 15minutes the race had to be stopped due to a little black bird playing around up near the fence!
i could not believe how steep the track was from the bottom up to the fence !
could you just not drive through this little bird !
it's not a bald eagle !!:lol::lol:

Nice picture. Was that at Car Craft? I have not seen that car before.

yeah its a couple years old now. i found it in a folder and did a quick touch up.

i bet the owner of the corvette would love the comments but my photography doesnt get better from car comments. how does this one work?

It is pretty much a "snapshot" of an interesting car. It is darn near impossible to get good pictures at Car Craft or Back to the 50's. Too many people, too many distracting background, inconsistent lighting, etc. I pretty much only shoot details or panning shots. I have seen some great shots from shows at the fair grounds, but they are the exception rather than the rule.

ah that being true there are other things that play into presenting a carshow snapshot well. exposure, contrast, saturatioin and so on. i know what your saying but in this case everything besides composition and some lighting details are out of control. limitations can lead to exrtodonary photography. it just takes courage and patience to come up with something significant.

"how well have i presented this photo?" should have been my question for critique.

Jon.

Depends on how it is being driven. You want them about 15-20 PSI for street driving. Then drop them to about 5-7 for track duty. If they are "under inflated" on the street the week sidewall wears out in only a few thousand miles.
