Street Racing with the Chuckster
Hi Kids, Holy Cow, can it be true? Old Man Chuckster going street racing? Don't believe it 'til you see it. All my friends say I drive like a little old man. Anyway, if I were to go streetracing this is the machine I'd be doing it in. It's a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, named Evy of course. Named after the character Natalie Portman played in the awesome movie "V." No, not the TV show. Everyone knows V is the second best movie ever made, second only to "Jaws." You might not agree, but then you'd just be wrong. So why am I posting about my car? Because it's paid off baby! Oh yeah, after 5 years of writing checks Evy is 100% mine!!! It only took 28,000 miles.
All the kids nowadays are always changing stuff on their cars, the only thing I swapped out on Evy was her exhaust system. The originals sounded like a 10 year old boy farting through a straw, so I installed Magnaflow cat-back pipes. She's got a pretty good sound now, but nothing outrageous. I've been up to the "Tail of the Dragon" http://www.tailofthedragon.com/ US 129 (320 curves in 19 miles or something crazy like that) a couple times and plan to go back soon. Can I get a "Hell Yeah?"
