Sounds like she'll be fun!!

(and if your Jeep gets lonely while you're spending all your time with that slut, the Camaro, she can come stay with us here in Florida... )

Its funny you bring this up...

The original owner had drag radials on it and must have been a great driver or something cause he got it down to 12.8 I believe. My friend (the second owner and guy I bought it from) only ran it for abotut 4 passes and got 13.8. I had a Z28 equipped pretty much the same without the shorty headers and I got it down to 13.2 with practice (I was on 18" Michelin Pilot Sport streeet tires, my buddy on 17" BFG's street tires) so I am guessing with some more practice and a really nice track day I could see 13.1 or maybe even a 13.0... if I am REALLY lucky I could squeeze out a 12.9...

haha I doubt she will get lonely... I have mastered the art of polygamy.

But okay... if she tells me she is lonely, I will ship her to you

Nice ride. I don't know how it is where you are, but in the South you are required by law to have a mullet if you drive a Camaro.

I would love a 1098 but i just dont think I can justify paying that mouch money for it if I dont plan on riding it ALL THE TIME...

I think I will go with a Monster... either a used S2 or S4R

And if I dont do that I will most likely get an early 2000's 996... Could be had for under 10K

Actually up until last year that law was the same here in Maryland. Some protestors got together to fight the power and now we are just required to have a Confederate Flag license plate frame... Pretty much changing our scarlet letter from Mullett to Confederate

Angry Protestors 1... state government 0

Yeah but camaros are associated with rednecks and white trash and deep south and mullets and confederate flags... We won the right to cut the mullet but still have to be branded some how... I guess driving a camaro itself is just not enough

I love the look of the Monster but just not sure how comfortable it will be for someone my size. I need to test fit one to see... I know the 996 fits fine since I had a 748 previously.
