I've always heard I would be too tall to fit in one. (Lamborghini)

I think you stole that Lambo from Dirtdigr. :yesnod:

You may have noticed the "For Sale" sign on the Chevelle.

I'm told the asking price is $30,000.:3_eyes:



Watch the 2017 Camaro Z/28 prototype crash at Nurburgring.

Didn't know whether to put this here, or in 'Aircraft'.

I put it here, in case you didn't notice.:D

Jag F-Type...I don't know what plane that is.

Damn fool, they will likely do more damage to his car than anything else...

Grav, the plane is a modified L-39 Albatross, a military training aircraft commonly used in the Czech Republic and other countries.

A couple weeks ago, a guy came into the auto parts store where my buddy works, complaining he couldn't find .030 over pistons for an early 440. The owner, being an old school parts guy, thought that was strange and took it as a personal challenge to use his many connections to find them. After two days he found a set of NOS +.030 pistons in Dallas for almost $1,000 dollars. :eek:
And that was without rings or wrist pins.

edit: add picture

I imagine it looked something like this, probably worse.

Is that a supercharger? Did it fail simply because of increased air pressure, or was there some metal part that broke and smashed into the housing?

I'm familiar with the idea of an engine seizing, and a push rod being thrown. There are probably similar things that can happen with connecting rods breaking and a head getting cracked when a piston hits it. So many ways for a red lined engine to fail in extreme conditions.
