Safety Warning

Well back in Dec I had my ankle and foot operated on. Fast forward to now. The ball of my foot is numb sometimes and not at others. So today I drive my Shelby to work no problems I am an instructor so I stand on my feet all day. Hop in the car and off I go with out any problems. I get off the highway and start slowing down for a stop light when all heck brakes loose. Seems my foot was numb and I didn't realize it I hit the brakes as hard as I did and stopped really really fast. Didn't flat spot the tires but I did cause a little pucker in the seat. Good thing no one was behind me. I will get used to it but wow what a rush.

Lol. No flat spot in the tires but what about the rotors? That poor baby! After I added new CAI and smaller pulley, I had to test it out. So I went onto the road our from the house and went through the gears. Got up to 130-ish and starter running out of room. I hit them hard lol. Soon after got hawk hps pads.

Well I will find out in a few days I have to do an oil change and give her a good bath before I run her around to much. I will be in Nashville Sunday to Tuesday morning for a job interview so it will have to wait till next week.

Well if I get the job I will be there by the end of the month. I want to retire down that way anyway so if the company will move me and keep me employed I am good with that. The plant is just north of Nashville we shall see next week.

I am planning on it. Looks like this year will be a slow year for me cruising or driving a lot due to work. If I switch jobs it will be better. Time will tell. I really am looking froward to driving to Nashville from here. Long straight away's and mountain turns, what could be better
