another dumbass move I made...

I have a 74 Z28, with a 440 + HP 327, I just put new 295/50/15's on the back with 3 ince wide hooser drags on the front, track bars but NO subframe connecters yet... ( cause im stupid ) so they set a new ashfault patch on the highway 2 days ago, so me and my bud in his SS 396 chevelle went for a quick drag... I launched at 3500 RPM and hooked well, as I pulled ahead, Brian started honking and I slowed down, he told me to pull over and was laughing his ass off... We looked at my car, and from the top of the door line up to the roof, the paint is cracked... Ive never heard of that before, not on a non T-top anyways... now I need to repaint the car.....

I mite as well been talking to your dog but then he would listen. A solid frame is their for a reason!! It is cheaper then a new paint job.
