There are those rare types out there where their reach exceeds their grasp.

I knew a guy like that. He had a pretty junk VW and decided that just what it needed was a wing on the back.

The wing looked ok from a distance. But since he made out of galvanized steel and welded it, there were big gaping holes in it and huge burn marks. Nope, it wasn't painted.

Almost as good was the kid down the block with the 52 Chevy. Decided it needed paint. Used a brush.

....isn't that Latvia's Grand Champion Gasser from 2002, apparently it was retired when they brought in the "No-Po-nitro" rule.....when the production of nitro from potatoes was banned....sad days indeed for the Potatonitskyov Brothers who'd moved up over the years through "donkey drags" , Pro-Lada and Outlaw Trabant to Top-Fuel...............
