Garage
It had a water puddle under, radiator or hose possibly. Mike Guidrey? from Louisiana is all that I have heard. Dave DDM came and got them. Hope everything is quickly fixed.

The game was a good one for the home team, we were setting close the family of #7 Gordon, they were quite happy with his night. Was hot when we got there, and it was neat being on the field, the evening cooled down, fun night for all.

1coolsol had a problem with his foot gear which resulted in an unplanned departure from controlled flight and a trip over the curb. When I talked with him he was fine. A bit upset by the whole event but doing ok. The car when I left DDM was still to be thoroughly inspected but had no signs of any permanent damage other than a low tire.

It's a wrap, not painted.

Thanks for posting these pics. I do like the dual centre exhaust on the Coupe. Seems to really work with the lines of the Coupe.

yes - it is a wrap. Well done too. The lines are very clean.
I'll try to get a closer look at it in order to answer other questions that have been posted.

The name of the company is on the front of the car ( in black )...

( I'm glad people are now seeing the photos... )
