My favorite car was the 1970 Chevy Monte Carlo I owned years ago. It was in mint shape and had a brand new 350 engine under the hood. I always wished I had the money to buy one of those gm crate engines, but I had to settle for what I could afford at the moment. I had to eventually get rid on Monte because I lost my job and driving the car cost me a mint. The Chevy Monte Carlo could pass nearly any car on the highway, but it sucked down the gasoline. I sold it and bought a more economical car because my finances were in a bind. I still dream about my Monte, it was a fun and a fast car. I wish I had the money to put more power into the car and actually took it for a spin on the track. Maybe someday. Until then, I am stuck watching my favorite sport in person and on my television.
If you ever have a chance to build a race car and take it for a spin on the track, make sure you do it. Age will creep on you faster than you think, so you better live your dream while you can. I had one car that was a blast to drive and a terror on the road. I love speed and I love sitting behind the wheel. Racing is fun to watch, but I always wondered what it would be like to be involved in a real race. I believe this is why some guys street race when they are young. The adrenaline you feel when you actually have power under your hood is incredible.
