Drag Race or Get Lucky?


Dear Shifty,

My girl friend refuses to go to the drag races with me. She says I smell like grease and gasoline when we go. I really like her and I think she may be the one. However, I also like to drag race and my 69 Z28 Camaro hardly ever gets beat. What do you think I should do?


Stuck between a hard-place and a 69 Camaro

Dear Stuck,

Try some Old Spice. If that doesn’t work then send the girl down the track and look for a new one. It is a lot easier to find a girlfriend than it is a good 69 Z28 Camaro!

I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check our our page) As long as it has four wheels on it I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife Katriana is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out with our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
