Hi folks. I'm David, and I've been around drag racing since I was a kid. 50 years old and live in Mayfield Kentucky.
Got a 65 Chevy II that I bracket race at local 1/8th mile tracks. I'm not good enough to make a living at it, but I really love the action.

I dont see that any more suited to a racing site than my Fiat. Mine is 100% race car and I dont expect a half dozen clowns to come piling out of it.

Heh, being in Moscow, Russia where there are NO DRAG STRIPS they would probably think the same thing about your car! ;-) And mine too for that matter. Just difference in cultures is all and I'm sure his comment wasn't meant as an insult. =;
