Default Prowling, you ask?

Yeh, we've been doing a little street prowling in our Chrysler T & C van.
Nice weather's coming, so we'll drag the 55 out, it's a little better suited for serious prowling.
Too bad the van doesn't run as good as the 55, that would be fun.

J.T., yeh, the weather is starting to turn, but we're in for another 6" of white stuff towards the end of the week from the last wx reports.
Your car is one awesome prowler, I like it, thanks for the pic.

Default I dunno

Cowboy, my theory is the cold numbs all parts of the body, starting with the brain pan, and we're left with no decision making powers to move.
Why we don't start the thinking process before the cold and numbness sets in, I haven't a clue.
We're stuck in a circle of circumstances beyond our control.
I'm sure looking forward to warm weather.

I just found this forum and thread. Great stories, I love it! I had a chance to take the 57 out to the 1/8 mile and I was in the staging lanes. I new I would be running a new Hellcat with Drag radials (same tires that I am running, 305/45-18) and he had his hood up. So I started up a conversation and was asking questions about his car. Have you put a pulley on it? Cold air kit? Cam? Tune? He looked at me with a furrowed brow and said, ď Why would I do that?! Itís over 700 HP! It doesnít need any more power!Ē So I complimented his car and walked back to mine. I beat him by .5 seconds in the 1/8th. He didnít talk to me the rest of the event. Funny how the new car owners disregard the old metal.

Thanks for sharing! Yeah most think the old stuff is well Old. Kinda reminds me about one too. He was putting go pro's on his. I told him to make sure they were pointed to the front if he wanted to get some video! There would be nothing on your video if you point it backwards hahahah
