Wasting Time

Went for a cruise the other day with Jamie while my alignment was getting done over at Carlos' shop (thanks again Carlos!). We ended up doing what we always do, try to take over the... suburban highways? Wait, no, no, well, yes, but not this time. We stopped off at Top Setup for a bit to discuss a few things with Charlie and got to see the beginning phase of what will be a new showroom.

But I'm not going to be the one to let the cat out of the bag and show you the inside now, you'll have to go over there and check it out yourself (I didn't take any photos inside, plus some finishing touches needed to be done when we were there). When we left, we were planning on taking some rolling shots of Jamie's DC2, but needed a second car. As we were getting off the highway near a friend's house, a statie flew passed us on the off ramp, and went directly back on heading the other way. Figuring that it had to have been something good to cause such a commotion, we decided to follow suit. Moments after we got back on, all of the lanes started to slow down and traffic was brought to a halt. Smoke was billowing above the traffic ahead and a row of Illinois' finest lined up at the front and weren't letting people by. When we were finally allowed to pass on the shoulder, look at what we came across:

Wait, no, not one of my favorite stickers on Jamie's car, nor the two censored goons, but this...

The moral of the story? There isn't one, we needed to waste a little time and happened to catch somewhat of a symbol of the American auto industry's very publicized ill-fate. Something built ____ tough, burning to the ground as hundreds of motorists watch. All-in-all, just another day cruisin' around in a neat Honda.

PS - This happened two weekends ago, I honestly should've posted it earlier. I personally have quite the hectic schedule concerning school lately, which has lulled the amount of time I have to update as of late. It's been just sitting with a bunch of unused material and drafts, some of which are pretty outrageous. Of that, what continues to stick out will be posted in time. Also, lots of good things currently happening with many of the CrazuKnights cars lately as well... it seems almost too much to try and post about it all, or find the time. But I assure local material and individual coverage will increase, and more of a group update will come soon as the weather becomes steadily more pleasant.
