Well, today I had an incredible time out on Long Island . Met up with CoolVanilla (Scott) and BigBob, both of whom live out there. It was an hour trip for me early this AM with the birds, but WELL WORTH it.
CARS CARS CARS is the only way to describe this. Everything from 32 hot rods to old and new vettes, vintage and new GTO's, 40 fords, 50 and 60's Chevy's, vipers, mustangs, MOPARS galore, GT40's old and new, cobras, bikes---ENDLESS.
I followed an Austin Healey on a tube chassis with a blown small block chevy motor in it. We toyed around with each other all the way down an eight mile road on the way to the beach lot. The last mile he slammed it and it was hyper space, leaving me in a vapor trail.
It was a good day all around There were 2 other LXers An R/T Magnum 6.1 and a new Charget R/T (both black). Couldnt get anyone else to show though. This thing happens every week, weather permitting!. I got there at 7:00am and there were already 9 cars in spaces staking out territory.(???) About a half hour later I knew why. Cars by the dozens pulling in., ockeying for space--vette guys putting cones down to save spaces for other vettes, etc etc etc.
Pics are great. The experience was UNREAL

NOW FOR THE BEST PART--- THIS IS NO ****
Coming out when leaving I end up next to a nice 55 chevy with two HUGE four barrels sticking out of the hood.
Eveyone apparently races (no mater who or what) on the way out, and there is a HUGE crowd at the ramp onto the 2 lane road (which runs about 15 miles straight as an arrow. This guy sounded like the summer nationals next to me.
Off we go-he hole shots me by about a half. I catch up to him at 60 and we proceed to stay flat out neck and neck until I hit 115 and got off it. He throws me the thumbs up and keeps going straight out and I hit the u-turn a hundred yards later to come back to New Rochelle. What a rush.
(I'm sure he was playing with me)
Only thing is I left ESP on and couldn't do any burnout first like everyone else.
