I LOVE LOVE LOVE did I say LOVE sleepers? Nothing screams in your face more than pasting a 'sportscar' with a 5000lb SUV playing Elmo on the rear dvd player

What do you do for a career that you have a Centurion and enough money to blow on that motor?


That was my first run... I did another run after doing a brake stand and was able to pull off a 12.17 @ 113mph. My tuner said too bad I was losing boost due to a loose belt. Should have been in the 11's. Alas, too hard to make another trip there this year so I will try again next. My goal is to go sub 11.5 and get thrown off the track for not having a roll cage LOLLOLOLO

As for career, I'm fortunate to have had the right bounces and opportunities to make prudent financial deals. I have a day job like all and work 9-5. Believe it or not, I'm probably just average compared to some of the people here. Many who have met me in person would never realize I have financial freedom and a Cent card LOL.

Sorry to dissapoint... I'm not a high powered lawyer like JCarter ..... who sadly has disappeared shortly after I joined this board coincidentally after I got my Cent card :( Now HE had some serious stories about his high priced expenses charged to his Cent and Palladium card

I was primarily an import guy back in HS. Had a few 13 sec hondas...slow, but quicker than the stock mustangs at my school :p. Still have my old 1990 Civic just because I couldnt sell her.

College I picked up a 1996 Mercedes E320 and got the luxury euro bug...been in it ever since. Also picked up a 2003 E55AMG a few years later. Modded it. Put down 500whp and 600ish tq. Had to sell the E55 last year because I finished college in 2010 and my student loans kicked in... had to cut some costs after the warranty expired. Went to bikes now. Got a 09R6, sold it and now im rocking a 05 CBR 1000rr. Still got my 96 e320 with brabus stuff on it... trying to restore it and keep modding. No new cars till I buy a house on Oahu.

SRT8..yeah you shoulda been in the 11s...especially with AWD. I was in the low 11s range. Gotta love boosted v8s

Nice. A little bit of a drop would set that car off nicely.
