He'd be sitting in the Chevy like he's at a traffic light.
His green, he'd pull away like he's heading to the store for bread, milk, and smokes, one elbow hanging out the window.

The other guy would finally get his green, launch like a Saturn V.
About the time he'd be crossing the line, you'd see Homer's brake lights flash on as he'd notch another perfect 17.5 second run crossing the line at a blistering 78.385 mph.
Some guys said he raced just to aggravate the hot rodders.

Man, you'd see guys just blow runs against him when they'd ran great against 'equal' competition.
It's amazing how much being a good driver really helps even when your car is stock. I remember watching some drag racing and the guy that won was just a better driver and shifter even though his car wasn't the fastest or most souped up.

What I liked about the brackets was you couldn't just 'outbuy' the field. You had to know the sport and your gear.
A good po'boy could still have fun.

Now, my 12-y/o great nephew is trying to do gokarts.
Him and his dad up against what looks like fullblown Nascar crews.
A kid's 'team' pulls in with 3 trailers of gear.
I know, all's fair. Still, not a lot of fun for po-folk sometimes.

33 inch tires on a 1/4 ton truck.... meh. That's way too big for a midsize, just sayin

How do you know if someone ran a marathon?
Don't worry... They'll tell you.

Because it's fun blowing the doors off someone who thinks because they have said Camaro they have the fastest car in the world.

It's a moot point in the last say 5 years since the OEMs are making cars that are so stupid fast off the factory showroom floor. However, back in the late 90's/early 2000's when a Mustang was a mid-14 second car in the quarter throwing a Prelude motor into a stripped out hatch would get you into same ballpark. I know of a few otherwise stock appearing 90-93 Accords that were into the low 14s with just a motor swap and some good driving.

It's also a built, not bought mentality. Look at the people who bash the Baja's or the new TRD Pro going on and on about how you could buy an SR5 and end up with a better truck. Sometimes it's just fun to buy something that isn't a powerhouse in stock form and make it something crazy.

My old 1990 Accord was one of the slowest things around in a straight line but with an adjustable suspension, chassis stiffening bars and wide sticky tires it was an absolute blast in the corners and could hang with cars making a lot more power. Sometimes it's just more fun driving a slow car fast than a fast car slow. I've got something like an estimated 360-380 crank HP in my STi and it's almost too fast to enjoy around town.

X2. I've got a buddy who recently started running marathons, and he is relentless about telling people about it. It's good they found something they are passionate about, but sometimes I just want to them. I think they are borderline narcissists.

That reminds me of this one time I ran a marathon after downhill biking Mt. Everest only to jet ski in Hawaii. Oh I also ran a marathon there too...

No I'm kidding.. but seriously though, if you ran one... good for you. But you can stop bringing it up now... didn't family guy do a bit about marathon runners? If not, there's always this...

Yup accords are very underestimated that's why I took my 1990 accord up a notch and boy it was fun!

For me, buying a Baja was purely financial decision. SR5 vs TRD, was no brainer - i like creature comforts. I am done buying cars every 3 years. I plan on keeping the truck for a very long time. Buying a Baja gives me more capable truck from the get go. 100% OEM warranty was a big factor. Yes, it is more expensive, but its all a part of a 6 year loan at a little over 2%. And still, compared to my previous cars, my loan payment is rather small. This saves me from having to drop $2,000+ on suspension/wheels after buying a truck and having to put it on a credit card with a much hire rate. Once the OEM warranty is over, I will go crazy, but for now I enjoy a peace of mind.
