I was.

  • I parked next to another Challenger, HEMI Orange SRT 6.1
  • While getting tickets, a drag-racing mail truck crept on by. WAT.
  • Pretty cool toys there, of all sizes and ages
  • There was an insane Geo Tracker with what looked like 3 engines piled on top of one another. (Triple-supercharged? IDK) The car was orange, blue, white, purple, red, and probably some colors we’ve never even heard of. It was from Europe and the owner had orange hair. Never do drugs, kids.
  • What stood out to me was a black/red Challenger “Killer Bee.” It was a WICKED MAMA. An SRT 392 with seats from the new Viper, Corsa Exhaust, supercharger, Halo LEDs, revs up to 8 grand. His toddler daughter was crying due to the heat of the day (black interior too.) When my mom told him that she/dad just bought one for me recently, he said “Not many high schoolers get that kinda car, often parents think it’s too big and go for a Mustang instead (if they even consider either one)” And the best part - He lives in my town! I might be able to get a ride in it one day.
  • There was a small AutoX course near the street. If there’s anything about racing, it’s infinitely times more enjoyable to watch it in person than on video. I might just do a track day (Bro) one day. There were plenty of specialized muscle cars there, but some people decided to be different, using their:
  • Diesel-powered ‘71 Oldsmobile
  • Slant-6 powered ‘64 Dodge Dart
  • and a ‘79 Malibu Wagon. All three cars were stock (except for the engine in the Olds.) I can’t even imagine all the slipping and sliding inside, especially as the Dart carried 3 people.
  • On the way back, I passed a ‘70 Chevelle SS and gave him a thumbs up.
