  • Im out but will be there.

    Priorites I guess. 07 I went at the urging of 73 Fish.My Roadrunner was not ready so went DD in my POS.Glad I went.2010 I rode with Jeff and we were late getting to Indy(Damn that cars loud)Bummed rides the rest of the week.Last year I took the RR with my son and brother and had the best time ever.DW is addictive but Im on a limited budget.RR needs a motor rebuild,I need a car for work etc.Buy my first new car ever.A new Challenger. My dream car.Then I meet Bambi the deer and its totaled.Did I mention that I have lost both my parents in the last 19 months?They call me Lucky. LOL.

        Never a good thing when car meets deer. I saw truck on power tour met bambi's sister. Make sure and notify HOTROD if you are going to give up your competition pre registration spot. If a crate engine falls off of a truck you do have 90 days to install according to the bat lady!

            Don that sucks, but I fully understand priorities and family comes first. That's why I missed 2008-10.

            If there is anything any of us can do help however...

                    I think making it to DW is one of the hardest things to do. You are making the correct choice Don.

                          That sucks man. I'm still up in the air with no co pilot so it's iffy for me as well. I won't be able to swing it cash wise by myself. Last years flooding has left me very limited on funds. There is always next year. First things first buddy.

                            Sorry to hear about your car. I have been wanting a Challenger here recently- they have really grown on me. Fortunately, you are ok and cars are relatively easily replaced- you are not.

                            As for selling the kids- I have been trying to sell my 28 year old daughter for years. I thought I got rid of her when she got married, but 6 years later she came back- with a 1 year old! Now- 1 1/2 years later- I would still sell the kid, but the grandkid is NOT for sale!
                            Why think when you can be doing something fruitful?

                              Yeah... The 4yr old Grandson is a keeper!! My 24 yr old son still lives at home, but he pays the electric bill, cable bill, and water bill...so he is helping me afford dragweek!

                              ksj, How hard can it be to find a '12 Challenger with a 5.7, 6 speed, rubber floormats, radio delete?
