Very concerned about Eli showing a little skin. Usually, all I can see is a beard and sunglasses. Solid Gold sounds interesting and there has to be a story with Agnus.

Maybe not a Roger story, but a story none the less.

Cool

I know for a fact that Eli moonlighted as a trophy girl back in the 70's. Here's a picture of him in his glory days (Hey, he was young and needed the money to pay for welding school).

Boys it's time to trade those 8 cylinder vehicles in for more efficient sixes and fours.
Gas was 1.259 CDN last night. That translates to $4.76 US for a US gallon here in Canada. $1.309 is $5.00 US per US gallon. That extra $1.10 US or whatever is not all taxes. Once again the feds, Alberta, and the oil companies screw the rest of Canada. F*#k Alberta! Did you know that the oil makes its way from Alberta wholesaled through the US and then resold back through the trunk line that comes to the refineries in Sarnia and Toronto? Pay for it twice, that's the spirit. I'm tired of being screwed aren't you?

Tax me. I'm Canadian.

Default thank you all for the information

For anyone:

Thanks guys for the responses but I would like to know what is the address of the track (or the nearest documented location) I am going to be driving from "Bush Country” that is Washington, D.C. to Canada. I was going to map quest it for the driving directions or if you know of use any other recommended internet means to chart a course to your location I am open to suggestions.

can you race in more than one class? I would like to race in the 1/5 scale sedan class and would like to know how many people on an average usually attend this event that race 1/5 scale?....if there are any expert 1/5 scale driver that can help me with preparing form the race with set up and recommended tires I would appreciate it.

I have 1/8 scale car too and will probable be racing that if that is possible as well thanks so much. so what tires would you recommend for your surface.
