I can't stop watching Pinks. A 72 Vega just blew away an 80's Lumina. Ugly, noisy shitboxes that limp across the line at mid 9's but I'm hooked.

Find one being filmed live somewhere on your travels. It will break you instantly.

Oh, and it's American Idol - 78 Octane

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

I don't know how you have the patience. If they just showed the action, no problem, great fun. But it's the exaggerated, tedious, repetitive plays for suspense like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire or some such, I couldn't take it for 5 minutes.

It's Pinks All Out.They eliminated 120 cars. In the final two, the alcohol Camaro took all. $10,000. These are the Joe the plumber racers. It's great to see non sponsored cars as these guys and girls really need the dough and they give it their all. Gotta go. Another episode on Speed right now.

Update

A fucking Econoline just ran a 14.6. There was a toggle switch on the dash that had "ON" written with a magic marker.

The 1st car I can afforded back in 75 when I was in college. I was surprised to hear that car can preserved this long. I have replace the engine after I used it for 2 months. This is one of GM aluminum head, but I can not what the shit they used on the block.

Yeah, the original series was tedious but I think they hit on something here. Definitely fast paced and money earned with each round, plus nobody loses their 76 Cordoba although that kind of defeats the pink slip threat. Whatever.
