Default My prom weekend

I met this girl recently and I ended up going to her prom with her. Having never gone to mine it was pretty fun. But our group’* limos showed up 1 hour late. Me and Christina ended up going into the ghetto limo. The Lincoln thing on the hood was broke off, anything that worked off of power (not counting the windows) didn’t work. & there was empty beer bottles in there . So we just kinda sucked it up for the mean time, then half way to prom the limo gets a flat on the freeway . Limo driver couldn’t change it for some reason so we had to wait for our other limo to drop off the rest of the group @ prom and come back for us. We barely made it in time for dinner. But we had one of the front most tables in the dining room so we made a sweet entrance.

(fast forward to the next day in the afternoon .)

I am talking to Christina’* dad about cars and then he’* like “come with me I want to show you something.” Christina had told me her dad had a Vette and liked cars but she never let me in on what I was about to see. We go outside to his garage and it’* amazing. He has a ZR1 Vette with a 500+ hp and the license plate says “550 HP” He has some Roush Cobra that he said was dynoed @ 710 WHP! A funny car that he drove 317mph in the ¼. & A yellow1929 Ford Coupe thats been choped and has a 600hp SB chevy in it . A V12 Jag & a MG that he restored and now has a 260hp motor in it. He has a few other cars in another garage of his but I didn’t hear much about those. But I asked him if we could take some of the cars out cruising when I’m over another time & he was all about it & said “a nice Saturday soon we’ll do that.” I'll have the camera for that one on hand

Anyway heres some quick pictures.

Girl in red on the right didn't have to go alone did she? That'd be a shame.
