    long time listener, first time caller

    hello everyone, i have lived in the cedar rapids area all my life. i grew up loving cars and when i was old enough to drive, i was cruising up and down first ave. that was back when people still did that. back then i would hang out in the autoshine parking lot with all the street machines. that was were i started loving drag racing. now i own a modestly built 1980 cutlass that i have owned for around 9 years. i have slowly built it up over that time. here are three pictures of my ride. you may have seen it around, i have been to tristate a few times with it.

    well i'm never happy with how fast it is. not really intending it to be a bracket car. always looking to go faster. hoping to be into the 11's next year. maybe going to go e85, perhaps a blow thru supercharger setup in the future.
