If NHRA was truely interested in getting racing on the tracks, maybe do something to make drag racing more accessable. More tracks, more open days at said tracks, maybe make things more affordable. For me, Route 66 is the closest of the three at what Google claims is only a 45 minute drive, why not set up something like take over a local street or runway with the help of the the towns/countys/LEOs like they did back in the early days..........or like Discovery/Street Outlaws currently does.
I'm more interested in seeing a RoadKill and Mighty Car Mods teamup.
I don't know what it is about modern appliances, but my parents have a freezer Mom's parents bought 50 years ago and so long as the lid stays shut (not usually a problem, a STRONG magnet holds it shut), things stay very cold. Right next to it is the fridge they bought when they first moved here in the early 70's, same thing and is a spare. Since then, we've had one die, and the current one was acting up a while Mom was in Sycamore and has had 2 handles break. The one at work was bought when my old bosses moved the store across town almost 3 years ago, when my new bosses took over the business in March of '14, it stopped cooling much at all so they had to replace a part (don't remember what one) already! We've even been through a couple stoves and dish washers too. One dish washer was bough when my 33 y/o sister was a baby and it's been replaced twice in the last 12-15 years, the stove I grew up with was bought around the same time the now spare fridge was and also hase been replaced twice since 2000.
Don't get me started on all the rain, when Mom was in the two nursing facilities, I swear that it rained almost every time I went to visit her, if not on the way there, it was on the home................and most of the time, it was POURING! I will say though, those new BFG's do work fantastic in the driving rain!
