Tryna pay the bills, and go drifting

Yes well back at home and back to the 8 to 5 working day, but what keeps me going through the cold rainy Rotorua days strangely enough is the thought getting home and doing some more work on my car, the reason behind that is I get to spend the weekends away all summer driving this poor old car as hard and fast as I possibly can!

I love the life style and enjoyment that cames from the time spent away kayaking and wouldn't trade it for anything, but for me the rush from kayaking big rapids and water falls is out done a lot of the time by the feeling of taking this car sideways around a track faster then most people have ever been in a car, the sound of the engine screaming its head off on the rev limiter, tyres burning up as they slide across the track and looking out the side window at a concrete wall getting closer and closer as you try to scrape the rear bumper along it just to make the people watching go wow!
I dont think most people will ever understand what it is like to control a car in this way and I hope that they never do, other wise there will be so many people doing it I'll never get a space to get on the track!!
Any way Ive been trying to tidy up my poor beat up car and give it a fresh coat of paint and pretty much rebuild it so it works again, it costs a lot of time and money to do all this plus get to the track buy tyres, gas, tyres gas and um more tyres so if theres any one out there thats got some spare cash lying around let me know and I might be able to take you for a ride in exchange!
