    Do what, race a truck with a Ranchero on its' back while towing a pop-up? I doubt you could even find a second one to race against anyway.

    Looks like the Ghostbusters rocked up in ECTO-1 there on the right in the background.

    Good ol' Irwindale. Pretty close to home, Dad would take me and my brother there once in a while. Used to be able to stand at the fence at the starting line and let the fuelers give you a magic fingers massage. Saw front and rear engine AA dragsters, funnies, fuel alterds, rocket cars, bikes. Later on came motocross and speedway. Lot's of fun.
