Take your Ritalin and watch an entire 10 minute video.

I’ve seen & heard in-person the F1 before and doesn’t sound like lawn mower… this Del Sol did. I’ve seen several Del Sol in my life, but nothing convinced me that sounded like lawn mower like this one.

Lemons is about quirky. If you show up in a Supra or an E30, they are going to hold you tight to the rules. Those are solid reliable cars as well as being good performers, so you are showing up to win. Bring in a stupid swap and they don't care because they know it is going to blow up, or have a simple part break but because of stupid swap it is going to be hard to fix. They talk about this a lot in their recap videos and rarely does a built or swapped car finish well let alone finish.

There are a lot of crazy backyard cars in Lemons. I think my favorites are the M2Rolla, Corolla front half, MR2 rear half to make a twin engined AWD car. Or the twin supercharged 454 Marlin. It had two superchargers off a Gm 3800 V6 mounted backwards in front of the engine on a custom plenum that pulled through a carburetor. The plenum was massive, and as you can image it intake backfired and blew the entire assembly apart

I spent the weekend with a bunch of friends since my buddie's wife rented a beach house for his birthday. We went crabbing and fishing. At the end of the weekend we all went to leave and he lost the keys to his truck, the only keys he had for that truck. Another friend and I ended up driving 2 hours back home to get my car trailer and winch and went back out got him loaded up and towed him home. He got to endure a good ribbing from the back seat since his wife caught a ride home with other friends so we were able to lay it on pretty hard. We have all sworn to share this picture on his birthday till the end of time.

I might be the only one, but I believe something out there has ways of telling us when to stop doing something before something bad happens. I believe there are cues here and there. But, I also believe in Murphy's Law.



Having said that, regardless of what happens to Florida, it seems like something out there keeps telling NASA to not launch their rocket. It doesn't even have live passengers, but still.

I think it has a lot more to do with trying to launch rockets with old parts from Florida during hurricane season than any supernatural foreshadowing.
