    Just a squirrel tryin to get a nut!

    Howdy,

    Many of you may know me as "whiteshadow" from the other boards, but as i've grown older I have realized that I probably don't need a superhero name. Even though it's really cool. And I still occasionally call myself the great white shadow. Because I think it's cool.

    I'm Brian Foster, I live in Newton, own a yellow Z06 and a big black truck. I actively participate in Corvette Club events, and have for over 10 years. I used to do a lot of SCCA events, but have found over the years that if you aren't driving a sport compact car, you will have a hard time enjoying yourself on the tight courses they put on. (Nothing against the local SCCA region, it's really flourished the last few years, and was really fun when I first started autocrossing Hondas). This is why racing with the local Corvette clubs is a blast.

    I have owned many different types of vehicles over the years, and have gone through a boat load of good and bad personal experiences. I work in a very interesting profession, and recently took a new assignment that will free up most weekends for me so I plan on trying to make a few more get-togethers.

    Here are a few pictures of the setup, I'll get a few pictures of my trailer when I get the damn thing cleaned after bringing the old man's Corvette back from Arizona.

    Anyways, hello to everyone.

    Brian glad to see you made it over. DS is a bit dead these days. Now you just need to score yourself a race for upwards of five dollars.

    ^ I actually just used that quote on facebook a few hours ago. Its funny how many sayings people use now-a-days and they have no clue that they have an inside meaning or some back story to them.
