Some of you all are aware of the fires/smoke plagueing the NE Florida region...swamps burning, CAT ASS TROPHIC loss of timber/etc.....

SO, i'ts outside a wiped off and looking decent, not slick, just decently respectable from 20' and 20 mph.....


and it FREEKING RAINS for about 5 minits.....

Our '02 Z sits in the garage, exhausted, battered, scar'd, cracked nose, brake dust colored wheels, bug splats all over the nose, road rash everywhere including the windshield, rubber chunks on body, destroyed ABS, decals all over it -- under the track grime, nasty looking exhaust pipes, and duct tape holding the driver/passenger window stripping on.

This does not motivate me in the least to wash it. :laughing:

Now, if an ostrich took a crap on the hood, I'd wash the car then. For some reason it just looks great right now as it is.

That would bug me. At the race shop they wash and refresh the paint on the 3 race cars almost weekly.
They attend the races with a nice clean looking car regardless of what it takes.
Some times they come home with not a single body panel intact and yet $2000 and a week later they attend the next race in the series with a spotless car

Gene I retired Strider and started a new 4 year old Shadow. Strider turned 22 last week and after putting more then 30,000 hard miles on him I let him retire, same stall, same field, same friends and hopefully he will live out the next 13 years in comfort.
I plan on retireing in the next 5 years and I want a new younger guy trained , conditioned and ready to run when I do retire
