Funny story, but true. One Sat night I'm at Detroit Drag way with the VW bus. I'm in the staging lanes alone and a couple lanes over is a guy with
a dart. He has a couple buddies with him and they spot me, and the bus. Well they start laughing and saying "look he's racing a VW BUS!!!"
Now the dart was nice, no killer car, but it was all stickered up and obviously trailered to the track. Probably a 12 sec car. Anyway it was a
nice warm Sat. night and the lanes were full. So several hrs pass and I didn't see him, then as the cars are less & less we both wind up in the lanes again at the same time about two lanes apart. One of his friends spots the bus and starts again, "hey look the bus is still in" So I get up on my bumper and start hollering to the pairing guy at the head of staging "HEY GIVE ME THE DART-(and pointing at his car) I WANT THE DART!!!".
Well the diver must have realized I must know what I'm doin to still be in. Then all of a sudden the blood drains from his face when it hits him
how can I explain at home if I loose to a VW BUS. The driver starts yelling at the pairing guy, "NO-NO, he's not in my lane, I run the car in front or behind me." I'm yelling, "A 12 second spot, the crowd will love it". NO!!! NO WAY!! the guy screams.
Well they did NOT pair us, but it at least shut him up.
Who wants to be next?? Come on who's up
