Well, it looks like this writer wouldn’t be close to being a contender for the title of speeding champion of Texas.

But my excuse for getting nabbed for doing 72 in a 55 in my 1970 Monte Carlo when I was just 19 years old might rank among the most creative.

[PICS] The 2019 NCRS Winter Regional and Carlisle Winter AutoFest

Tue, 03/05/2019 - 5:28pm

Last weekend we had the convergence of two of our favorite shows in Florida at the Sun ‘N Fun complex at Lakeland’s regional airport.
