Let’s play a high speed, gearhead version of Brewster’s Millions, except this is BangShift Thousands. You’re walking down the street and a guy hands you $5,000, sticks a Summit Racing catalog in the other hand and a gun in your gut. He tells you that in no uncertain terms you have 10 minutes to spend all 5Gs on high performance car parts. How do you spend it?
There are certainly lots of ways to go with this one. From crate motors to turbo setups and wheel/tire combos, a car guy can eat up money like desperate drug addict…actually we know drug addicts that are probably more financially responsible than some of our car lovin’ pals. The Summit catalog is just a guide, if you know something that you want which Summit doesn’t sell, like say cylinder heads for a Cadillac flathead V8, you can buy those too. Vinny Two Fingers with the pistol doesn’t care what you buy, you just have the buy it quick!
Chances are, if high speed decision making is not one of your strong points you may be suffering from lead poisoning and a strong pain in your abdomen about 9:30 from now. Don’t delay, get to spending that cash in a hurry! What are you buying?
Question of the day: Given $5,000 and 10 Minutes to Spend It, What Speed Parts Would You Buy?
