:rotflmao Who do you cheer for?

I'm a firm believer in debadging. I think the rear looks so much better without it.

If you are asking me which player I cheer for, well I was a huge honey badger fan..now I guess I am a Spencer Ware fan! :mike

I might have to debadge mine not sure yet though. I just noticed your license plate :dblthumb:

We actually named my husband's truck Honey Badger. I'm just sick about what he has done. (the player not the truck :chuckle: ) I'm diggin Hill #33.

Thx. I know I should blob out my plate, but I don't know how to and I figure all the thugs in Memphis see it, I don't care who sees it here.

I agree I'm not much for the all black wheel look, unless it's on a dedicated all matte black stealth fighter kinda looking car lol but lookin good. I finally got another set of wheels to give the z a break during the winter!!! I'm gonna miss it :( but I'm sure it's gonna thank me when the spring comes around n it's still intact.. But anyway it's a 1997 dodge ram 1500 :D it has 90k miles two owner and it's super clean n it was only $4000.. So nice to be able to drive faster than idle down the driveway n haul parts!!!

I still have a full paeg add that they put in a magazine. Don't remember the mag but it was in a doctors office and i pulled the page out.

Yeah man it was Super awesome I definitely recommend it. Im saving up again now so hopefully in march or April I'll be able to drive the Aventador and the GTR that was out for service last time.. It's I nice easy course too just a little short but you do get up to speed well over 100 on the one straight...

That sounds so amazing. I know they have different packages so you can do more laps in more cars. Maybe I'll try to save some of my tax return and make a trip down there. haha actually my birthday is in march. Maybe i can make it a gift to myself

Yeah my father in-law drove the Italia.. That's things beast, n the superleggera handles crazy good n the paddle shifters are actually a lot more practical than I was thinking.. The instructors definitely let you push it on those turns too the only bad thing is slower drivers n the two suv's showing the course that get in the way pretty frequently.. I hope you make it out there though it's a great experience!! Well worth the money.

When I get a new sticker for my license plate, I take off the plate, remove the old sticker, get the new sticker perfectly straight, wax the plate and the car behind the plate.

I understand where you are coming from. ;)
