How's the weather over there?

Wednesday, November 02, 2005


It should really come as no surprise to those who know you that you have taken a recent shining to all things motorsport.

A little background:

You recently took your father to the fabled Laguna Seca for the American Le Mans race held there. You know a thing or two about cars which you get from your father, and you thought that this might be something that the two of you could enjoy together, further strengthening your relationship. And it would seem that you were right.

Be all of that as it may you wanted to share an awesome quote from a column that you found in the most recent issue of "Racer" magazine; it is from a scene in "Days of Thunder" in which Robert Duvall's character is talking to the chassis of the car that he is building for the character played by Tom Cruise in which he says:

"I'm gonna give you an engine low to the ground. An extra big oil pan that'll cut the wind underneath ya. That'll give you an extra 30 to 40 more horsepower. I'm gonna give you a fuel line that'll hold an extra gallon of gas. I'm gonna shave half an inch off you and shape you like a bullet."

As the author of the column asks and you reiterate, "What does any of that mean?"

In truth it doesn't mean anything. It is complete and utter nonsense. It's rubbish. Which for some reason you find wholly entertaining and can't seem to stop laughing about.

Hooray Hollywood!
