About “The Intimidator”

I saw one of these cars on the road and decided then and there that I had to have one. I found out there was a "Dale, Jr. Edition" too, but I like the look of the black and silver combination better than the red and silver. The blue and silver "Jeff Gordon Edition"? Who cares?

About “#The Elky#”

This was my daily driver. I bought it when I started leaving early for high school. I was originally looking at a '92 5.0 Mustang, but insurance was ridiculous, and 3 other people had one just like it. I wanted something different, something that would stand out. My mom ended up pointing the Elky out to me. At first I was a little reluctant, but I was glad I bought it. I had it for three years and the only thing I had to replace that was the radiator. It got around 14-15 mpg city and 24-27 mpg highway. Unfortunately, on August 26, 2008 I fell asleep behind the wheel and hit a tree around 50 mph, and I totalled it.
