    Fire Extinguisher Mounting

    An integrated fire suppression system is the ONLY way to go as far as virtually instantaneously snuffing an engine compartment fire out. 'Driver may not even be aware there IS a fire in a mid-engine car before the system puts it out! 'Would still be a good idea to have a hand-held extinguisher...

    Anyone got $420k laying around?

    Either way his wife now believes she knows how much money he spent building the car vs. what he may have told her he spent! 'Might not be good!

    2019 Formula 1

    Agreed. 'Usually no ROOM to pass even if one had the h.p. to do so. A race course that's only 10 feet wide ( case someone failed to recognize it) turns any race into nothing more than a high speed parade. 'Dullsville... JMPO. OMV.

    Anyone got $420k laying around?

    Sudden unforeseen financial/business/health/family issues aside, I have a tough time understanding why someone would choose to spend gadzillions of dollars building a more-or-less 'one-off' car (or having it built) over 'X' number of months only to drive it 100 miles and then turn around and...

    New Corvette to be released 7/18/2019 according to CNN

    Jokes anyone? -

    'Sent to me this morning: "I am truly perplexed that so many of my friends are against another mosque being built in town. I think it should be the goal of every citizen to be tolerant regardless of their religious beliefs. Thus, the mosque should be allowed, in an effort to promote...
