Default Went to Firebird today

I have not been to a real drag race for 25 years, always been a fan and been to the local tracks and seen plenty of 6,7,8 second cars, but have not seen a top fueler make a full pass for a looooong time. Holy fook, my eyes are still watering from the nitro fumes, probly the most coolest thing I've ever seen . I was in Tony's pit when they fired her up, couldnt figger out why all his guys had full face masks on, WOW, 5 seconds later I was crying like a little girl. Gonna go back tomorrow if it doesnt rain, man, I'm hooked.

welcome back Xrated1 , its been way to long for you to have forgotten what it feels like , take in a deep breath for me one time !!

and o yeah if the fumes only made you cry like a little girl , then you were to far from tony's car when they fired it up, get closer, every body knows that you stand there as long as you can , and not until , the eyes are burning and they are watering like a river , and your throat is screaming of pain as the fumes fill up your throat - do you realize ,
" what the f--k am i doing " , then you walk away ! then you find a place to catch your breath and you try to focus your eyes and notice that every body is laughing at you !! , then you hear another car fire up , and you run like hell to stand next to that car , and do it all over again
