    Actually it's "Joey Chitwood"

    That's an old video too. Note the previous-generation CTS and the XLR which is no longer made.

    The Japanese eat that stuff up...I mean, hey...those are the folks that gave us "drifting".

    I remember the Joey Chitwood "Thrill Show" every Summer at one of Chicago's 2 bull-pen ovals (SantaFe Speedway and Raceway Park). The troop really put on a show with real stock (unmodified) cars - two wheel driving, rings of fire, jumps - the whole deal.
    There are times for thinking, and times for acting, but the art is in the balance

    Thanks Rich, for minute or two there I thought I might be suffering from lack of oxygen again

    Joey Chitwood used to be an annual event for a long time in Maine, seen the show a couple of times but I don't remember if it was at Oxford Plains or Beechridge Speedway.....too long ago

    I never had that chance to see him (too young), but he's actually the grandfather of my First Sergeant, who, coincidentally is the person that I sold my '86 to...
    1986 Blue Greenwood body C4 automatic *SOLD*

    1989 Black Greenwood body C4 automatic *SOLD*

    Trying to decide on LT4 or C5
