Totally worth it to see the face on the corvette owners face.

To make yourself feel better, you should have taken a look at the crappy interior of that Corvette.

Not possible on a GTI with FWD. I've seen gutted Honda Civics on drag strips make 10 second passes but unless you want to gut a beautiful GTI then it's never going to happen.

Yep, me and a board member on here went to it two nights in a row. (It goes on for 3 or 4 days in a row. I can't remember.

Man seeing red GTI's really makes me wish I could have gotten that color...On the lot I had a choice of a base model blue, or the CW with conv and sunroof...no red! Red looks damn good on the GTI but I think it makes the striping on the grille more lol than ooo lala
