Good thing I didn't see those at BF.E. I'd have burned them. I'm surprised I didn't notice them when you did the "let's hit Don's vert" donut at the gas station Sunday morning.

That was totally Jay at the gas station with the demi donuts. I merely got mad at Denny's and burned out.

nope all vehicles remained unscathed. Jay's clutch may have been a little pissed though. as he said it "my tires are stickier than my clutch."

It was pretty funny, though. 8 cars or so sitting in this abandoned Denny's parking lot...and we're driving out calmly then all of a sudden, Jay decides to bust loose. It was like 0 to 150 in 3 seconds or less. But I did think...man, if he looses control, Don or I are in for some trouble (oh, and who is this crazy guy. Then I remembered )

Don and I were like "Holy crap, if that thing hooks up, we're T-boned" so Don scooted ahead, out of the way. It was awesome and danged scary at the same time.

The head-on one, hands down. Always go with the clearest image. We wouldn't care if you drove a Subaru or Audi, you're part of the group now and in perpetuity (well, maybe not an Audi. )

They are depo housings with 4k 55 watt HID and I'm not sure about the angel eyes. They are LED ones I think, but i picked them up used and I don't know much about them. Check out umnitza.com for the best selection/service.
