The only car I ever bought new was (bowed head I'm sorry) a 78 El camino! It was a certified factory freak. It had the laminated under powered 305 V8. except they forgot the underpowered part with this one. The car would get wheels on dry tarmac and go into a 4 wheel drift like the ricers can only dream about. Again its one of those 2 am stories. My buddy Butch and I are driving around drinking beer ( yes I know but it was a different time and I was a lot younger) cruising the back roads and jamming some tunes. Well Ihit a corner pretty hard and squeal a bit, just a Butch tosses a bottle out the window ( yes i know sorry again young and dumb) well there is a 4 door sedan sitting in a little gravel lot at the apex of the corner, it immediately takes off after us. No blinkers but his brights are in the mirror and gaining. Again young and dumb, n NO one catches mean this county!! So begins a 15 minutes romp around the back side of Gratersford prison on every country road and two bit dirt track between fields that I can remember. I just can't shake this guy! I'm sure I'm going to jail, he's just toying with me until back up arrives or I hit a road block. So I hit a long straight and hit the four ways and pull over. I get out of the car put my hands up as Butch heads for the weeds. The guy comes over the hill and hits the brakes as he slides up next to me, his passenger window comes down as he yell's "F#@k you to" and burns rubber leaving the scene. So i get back in the car grab another long neck and head for home at 30 mph!
I'D RATHER GO SLOW THAN NOT GO AT ALL
