Since it seems we all share a mutual interest in cars and racing, what other hobbies do you folks have ? I've been a collector of old drag racing memoribilia for quite a few years now. I've slowed down buying items since retiring. I have a complete collection of Hot Rod Magazines from 1948 to 1975. Only 1 of the 1948 issues are the real deal and the rest are the repops they put out in 1987. I have a trophy from the second NHRA national race in 1956 plus 2 dash plaques from the first event in 1955 in Great Bend, Kansas. I read a lot, so I have many old books about drag racing and early hot rodding.
Let hear what you're into and some background on what your hobbies and pursuits are. Never know how many of us might share the same hobbies, and that would be a good thing.

Other than racing, hmmmm.

Hunting, shooting, fishing, camping....I have a nitro RC truck that I terrorize the neighborhood with...that's about it, other than work.

Here's the RC truck. It's a 2.5 TMaxx with an HPI body, RPM a-arms and bumpers. New Traxxis cooling head, pull starter, reverse delete, and the 2 speed automatic. I have a 3.3 for it with new exhaust pipe and a few other goodies but waiting on the 2.5 to tire out before the swap. I've had it about 12 feet in the air on several occasions. I gotta get it out soon and wear the old 2.5 out so I can test out the 60% more power of the 3.3.

I hunt an fish some. Should just say I search for critters an never catch fish cause theres lots of interest with little success but I enjoy being outdoors alot. I have done some target shooting an shot clays at home before at my shooting range but My dog Benji is extremely gun shy an I try an not scare him much.
