Re: Look what I stumbled into...

I have a similar offshoot from the main stream Cobra forums I hang
around at called "cobranet". The kicker is, you have to register with
your real name or your removed quite quickly. It's actually a bit
refreshing knowing who your dealing with (most of us race together as
well as a certain Rochester based end user here can attest to) if you
ask me.

I'll give you guys a taste of the attitude there with the following

"Freditorial" (located on the main page) entitled:

"****IN WAXERS"

" Ever really sit down and think about why we do things??? We all like
Cobras , right?? Why?? I personally like ‘em because they're fast and
loud and obnoxious. BUT MOSTLY ‘CAUSE THEY'RE FAST, at least mine is.:)
Now, in order to fully realize the enjoyment of the car, YOU GOTTA DRIVE
THE **** OUT OF IT... That means putting it together with enough
horsepower, enough brakes, enough tires, and enough of a trans to get it
to move fast enough to be fun. Start it, pull it out on the road, and
pound the shit out of it. Got balls?? Take it out on a track and really
pound it. That's what the damned things are for. If it breaks, fix the
****er. Don't have a heart attack.

But, some guys don't buy em for speed. They buy em to attract attention.
Lots of em are just, shall we say, weenies. They build shitty cars with
lots of shiny shit hanging off ‘em and go vroom down the road and act
like theyre driving an F-15 and tell anybody that will listen how
awesome the car is and blah blah blah. Joe Blow thinks the car is
ferocious, but we here at Cobranet know it's just a plastic shitbox made
of shitty parts and has no balls. (You would die if you knew how many
275HP motors are in those things that the proud owners say have 500HP!)
But, anyway, these guys can be found at all of the Burger King Car Shows
that dot the landscape angling for cheap trophies and bragging rights.
AND WAXING THEIR LITTLE CARS!!Just a bunch of weenies and their Simonize
or Meguiars or ArmorAll. I say give ‘em a can of Vaseline and turn em
loose on each other............

Wax wax wax. That's all they do. And blow smoke up each other's asses
about how great their cars are and which brand of tire shine they use.
Take your ****in tire shine and use it for lube to bone each other! And
start driving those ****in cars or sell em and go buy a goddamned Miata
and wax that. Who the **** would trailer a goddamned car that is NOT a
classic, and could be replaced with a phone call to any of 40 different
manufacturers??? Build ‘em, and run em. Save the wax for some
Duesenbergor Packard or Gull Wing Benz.

Some of them, anyway. Lets not forget something. Most of these plastic
shitboxes are junk with shiny paint jobs. They arent set up to really
drive. Some assholes won't even hit bumps in their cars so they don't
get their teeth rattled. Sit in traffic?? Heavens no - It'll
overheat....Potholes?? Rain?? Bugs?? Tar?? Bird Shit?? **** NO !!! It's
a monument. The weenie will die before he lets any foreign matter touch
his shiny plastic shitbox. I bet a weenie waxer would rather eat shit
than let a pigeon splat one on his hood.

Finally, I think many of these bozos can't do anything but wax. They
can't work on the cars, so they just wax em. Whatever. It would be OK if
they got really hot chicks with ‘em, but I always see ‘em with pigs. I
think the hot chicks like the guys that really pound the hell out of the
cars. The pigs like the weenies and the spray wax.

So put the key in the ignition, fire it up, and drive the car. Don't be
such a pussy. I'm thinking about going around and shitting on the hoods
of the waxers. They'll be in the ice cream store licking their cones and
I'll be driving home from the gin mill. Then they'll come out and see a
big steaming cowflop on their hood. Then they'll know one thing:

FREDDIE WAS HERE..........."

Unbelieveable. How can you read what that guy wrote and think you're
not one of the weenies (minus the bottle of wax, of course)? Here's
the list. Tell us when is the last time you got out and "pounded the
shit" out of each of these cars. Or to make it easier, just describe
the most recent three cars: car, date, particulars.

'63 Galaxie Country Sedan Wagon - 390
'64 Monterey Marauder - 390
'64 Fairlane 500 Ranch Wagon
'65 Olds Starfire - 425
'65 Galaxie 500
'65 Comet 404
'66 Mercury Colony Park Wagon - 410
'67 Mercury Commuter Wagon
'67 Cougar - 289
'67 Cyclone GT Convertible - 390GT
'68 Olds 4-4-2 - 400
'68 Torino GT - 390GT
'68 Mustang GT/California Special - 289
'69 Plymouth Satellite - 383 - 4 spd - 4 dr
'69 Mustang Coupe - 302
'69 Cougar XR7 428 Cobra Jet
'69 Cyclone CJ 428 Cobra Jet
'69 Fairlane 428 Cobra Jet Automatic
'69 Fairlane 428 Cobra Jet Stick
'70 Cyclone Spoiler 429 Cobra Jet
'70 Torino GT - 351C
'70 Torino Brougham 351C
'70 Plymouth Road Runner - 440
'72 F-250 Camper Special
'73 Mustang - engineless
'73 F-100 Ranger XLT engineless
'76 E-250 Econoline - 351W
'86 Cougar - 232
'97 Crown Vic Police Interceptor
'?? Toyota Celica - parting out

There might be an '82 Accord in there too.

Ready, set, start your engines.
