You Don’t Call You Don’t Write



That’s what people say when you haven’t called or written in a long time. Well I can’t call most of y’all, but I might if I could . Far as writing goes . . . yeah I haven’t and that was pointed to several times when I announced the return of BiggLaLa. FYI, that post was all about her so if you talked about me there BL gonna git ya.

So, even though I don’t really “owe” any explanations you’re gonna get some. There are 3 reasons; the first 2 are kinda dull. 1. A lack of motivation. Being ‘out in the sticks’ so to speak there are few local women on these sites, so the motivation to be here is mostly waiting for an interesting local woman, or more, to pop up here. 2. My computer is approaching the end of its useful life. I had someone do remote ‘CPR’ and it is effectively terminal (pun intended).

Now, the third reason – I’ve been on other sites. Yes you read that right I’ve been cheating on A*F*F. I’ve been looking at other sites. Now, honey(s) before you get all upset let me explain. They aren’t naked/girlie/sex sites. But they are related to an addiction I have, just not the sex one. Hummm . . . perhaps I should ‘splain further.

If you’ve read my posts may have figured out, that I’m a race driving addict. I had 4 race cars at the beginning of this year and had one on CL, off and on, for the last few years. A few months ago I finally sold that car. Running that car (a Mustang) took a ton of effort beginning with the fact that the closest track it was suited for is a 400+ mile round trip. Leaving the track at 1 AM meant I wouldn’t get home till about 5 AM, after a race where the temps could be over 0 degrees. To really get to tracks that a decent purse I would have had to to Texas or California. “So what” you say.

Well, in talking to the guy who bought the Mustang I found that a local-ish dirt track (only 1 hour away) is running a of cars that suits the types of cars I like to build and drive. I could not run the Mustang there. So I went there; checked things , and I got the whiff of race fuel in – it does smell like victory . So, the other sites I’ve been scrounging around on are ones where race cars are sold and technical info is obtained. The tech info will be very important because I have 2 options for having a competitive car; an already built car and make it better (something I’ve done quite well). Or build up a car from a street car which takes a lot of time and . My preference is an already built car – that option tends to be less expensive if they were built decently. But there has been a problem. Just like finding local women finding a comparable race car locally has been a no go. In fact I’m talking to owners in Texas, Iowa and PA.

Anyhow, if y’all want to hear more let me know.

    I heard that Boundurant Racing School had to close, although it may just be rumours or yet another restructuring. When I was there in late January early February, the writing was already on the wall and lots of whispering. I hope it works out for them as it was a great time and I'd definitely return one day.
    I too am in the pursuit of two new beauties. An all original 1965 1/2 Vette convertible and a resto rod 67 Nova.
Just found this:
"5/21/19: According to Fiat Chrysler, the former Bondurant school is reopening as The Official Performance Driving School of Dodge//SRT. Contrary to early reports, the school never closed completely or fired every employee, according to the Arizona Republic, but had kept classes running on a limited basis. The newspaper reported the school's pending sale in bankruptcy court in March. Stig Investments, Inc, comprised of three former graduates of the Bondurant school, completed the sale on Monday for $1.7 million. The new owners have signed a 10-year lease at the same site in Chandler, Arizona."

Good luck on the wheels and other things with curves.

No not just that track - many others. The first ever dirt track race I went to we sat in the first row (last time I did that) and close to the urn. The dirt on the seats should have alerted us.

What size cars? The class is called 'Sport Compacts' I'm looking at a couple Mitsubishi Eclipse'
