a friend of mine has had this speed record for a while now and since no one has yet been able to beat it hes decided to go out and beat it himself.

Cool!

I always liked fast old Bugs.

I remember one time when I had my car at the dragstrip, there was a dude with this unassuming plain-jane white Beetle in line.... I noticed that he was running skinny slicks on the stock wheels (WTF?).... Anyhow, my curiosity was piqued when he left the line with his front wheels in the air and laid down an 11 second ET!

I'm glad I wasn't running beside him, or I'da been eating VW dust!

Back in 1980 I was prowling the streets in a '69 Camaro with a very hot built Corvette 427 engine and a 4 speed .
My car was damn fast down the quater mile and I rarely got beat around town Friday nights doing the stoplight drag thing on the cruise gut.
There was this guy I hated coming up next to at a light though,yup it was a damn VW bug.
I could have whipped him in a full quatermile but he could holeshot anyone in town with his 4 webber carbed 2200ccVW and couldn't be beat stoplight to stoplight :smoke
That damn bug didn't spin a tire,it just launched in a wheelie like it was shot out of a cannon :laugh
