The Need for Speed

By Jonathanrmanion

Filed under: 1983 Chevrolet Camaro (Haywire)

Ok folks, i know you all have had the need for speed atleast a few times in your life. Me personally, I've had my fair share of close calls with Death when speed was involved. But it has never slowed me down. Has it gotten me to rethink my approach to speed, yes and no. Will i ever slow down? Hell no! To sum up how i feel about it i will use the Quote that my Detachment SGT has posted on his door. - Life's journey is not arrive at your grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out shouting "Holy ****.... What a Ride". So the thing that has been racing through my mind this whole morning is My Z28! It is going to be receiving my Chevelle's Salty Small block after i freshen up the gaskets a bit, and having north of 400 ponies will bring a smile to any ones face... but i am already dreaming of going fast again. I was think of a nasty Big Block, a 427 or a stroked 396 would be nice, with an exhaust that kicks out behind the front tires, probably by cut outs with a switch to open it up, though i have a feeling it would be open more often then not, unless the cops are near by or wintery weather prevents me! Am i crazy or am i just a good old fashioned enthusiast? Either way i am shoot for the moon and if i miss? Well i'll be among the stars
