Default the $1.30 in-car cam mount

I call it the CamClamp :gay: Obviously not track-approved, BUT it does the job. Clamp to the package shelf brace and action! Clamp was .99 at BigLots and .23 for the spacer and bolt at the hardware store.

Ya know we could have really played this one out.
big lots is like the mini-harbor-freight for the neighborhood. The hardware store has a "chinese" tool bin, but most of the stuff costs about five times what it does at big lots.

Default no love for ingenuity

I made this so I could post a follow up vid of the eBay BOV... finally. The real problem is the height- but that can be fixed with a C bracket. Got the job done.

When we were pulling by that semi on I-85 south at 3AM, I do not recall your car being slow.

Sadly, that is very true.
That was the night we got Ben's (Atl93 Ben) MS installed, knocked out a couple of things, and started tuning. I don't think either of us knew what time it was. But his car ran (pretty well) and we didn't hit any deer. Double bonus.
