Went for a drive late Friday night with the other members of my car crew, Coast Works. I finally have some video footage of my car, however it's not the most exciting stuff (we were just cruising through the tunnels). This was the first time our cars have been on the road together ever! My buddies both just finished up a 2 year build on each of their cars.


Hope you like it!

I have to edit some stuff out (my buddy was complaining). I'll post it back up once I do so.

Are those the tunnels on your way to Logan airport? They look familiar.

Went for a drive Sunday with a couple buddies. had to do a bit of off-roading to get out here, but it was worth it for the pics.









Snow tires on a Roush Mustang, not something you see everyday! (it's his daily)












I also raced the mustang (435hp) from about a 50mph roll and walked away from him, which was fun to see. I was a full car length ahead of him before I even shifted into 4th.

Teaser shots:





Ignore all the smutz on the lens, as well as the overall state of the car- it's filthy. I really wish I used black sealant instead of the grey as it sticks out like a sore thumb. I might redo that over the winter if I get bored enough.

It was a decent amount of work getting them to fit.
