Default Boaters Into Classic Cars/Drag Racing??

After going to ATCO twice in the last week, I was just curious to see if any OSO members out there anywhere (but especially in the Philly/SJ area) are also involved in or were previously involved in these other "hobbies"...drag racing and classic/muscle cars. We all seem to be speed freaks by land and water.

If so, what kind of ride do/did you have?? Can you tell us some more about it? Could you please post some pics of it if possible?? Would love to see your ride!! (Nothing beats a nice burn out or wheelstand/launch shot!)

THANKS for the pics/replies,
DRR

I might have seen that red Nova...at Cecil County in June 2004 or Maple Grove in August 2003 maybe. I can't remember...could have also been Island Dragway last September or E Town 2 or 3 years back. It su*** getting old...I hope I'm not getting early Alzheimers disease!!

Nice! Always liked the nova's

My favorite car is the 69-71' Camaro SS! Now, if my wife would just let me build one! Asked a couple times but I don't think she's going to budge.
