I'd love to do a tube frame for my 76, as it sits, best I can hope for to reduce flex is a good cage, and even at that, up here, only 4 point roll bars are street legal.
Reminds me of how my Mrs. drives:
The NHRA predictably keeps no record of deaths and accidents. I could do about 10,000 video links to such accidents.
Link to anyone ever hurt in the OP situation I gave.
Oh, that's right. You presume anyone should go to prison and otherwise be criminalized unless proven otherwise - your presumption in favor of prosecutions and jailings.
If it was you...nice road. Where's that at? And advice, out a small bright weighted item on the end of a short string, and dangle that from the mirror. Low tech g meter...gives the viewer a better idea of speed. I do it in my vette vids...it's always fun to see how close to sideways I can get it before the tires break.
So many snowbirds here on out of state license there is no problem and lots of old people have put-together cars as a hobby, plus there is NO inspection, NO tailpipe test AND you can register it for TWO years - which goes on birthdays. The only thing you'll need is proof of insurance, which they generally neither confirm nor make a copy of. Then in CT claim you also have a winter residence in Florida if ever even stopped and asked you have the Florida plate. You do not need to bring the car in to have the sticker renewed every 2 years and generally can do that by mail.
Stamp whatever the VIN # was on the tube frame.
Haul it here once and you have tags and title with no inspections for life.
Getting caught doing 120 on the interstate when it's deserted? Whatever. Pay the fine, lose the points. 140, 150, or higher? Effing 170?!? Rediculous. Revoke the license for a while. Not someone I want to share the road with. Oh, but no ones around, it was safe! Really? Where'd the cop that caught him come from, then? A wormhole?
Oh is that so?Originally Posted by joko
Did you actually look at the citation? Here is what the owners have to say about themselves on their home page:
Forensic Dynamics Inc. is a consulting forensic engineering firm specializing in accident reconstruction...
Our firm has reconstructed over 10,000 accidents and given expert witness testimony in over 500 trials across North America.
Seems I have to decide who to believe, Forensic Dynamics, Inc., or some putz who calls himself “joko.”
Whoa Nellie- not the distance I claim, the distance a company of auto accident reconstruction engineers claims.Originally Posted by joko
And speaking of citations, you could stand to provide a few of your own. Don’t blame me for not trying, though- I googled all kinds of “Mercedes CL65 braking performance” hits, and found nothing except sales boilerplate glossy.
But, taking your 1/3 the distance****at face value, assuming a drunk takes triple the normal time to react, he will stop a car doing 70mph in about 400 feet, whereas at 170mph Mr. cold sober joko hotstuff needs about 647 feet to stop that CL65 of his. (I will provide the calculations as soon as I see a believable cite for the 1/3 the distance claim)
Joko loses again, this time to a drunk.

Interesting you haven’t told us you would prefer someone driving home from the neighborhood bar at a sober 130.Originally Posted by joko
