Everything is on the internet. Someone posted this video on Facebook. It's a random cruise around Park Ridge IL. in 1994. In 1994 I drove a 1987 Buick Turbo Regal. At 4 minutes 13 seconds there is a Turbo Regal stopped at a light. It's me no doubt. It's two blocks from where I lived. White sticker, bottom left of the windshield. No plates on the car in the video, probably not long after I bought it. Bought in '94, sold it in '95.

Thanks Jack!
This video really demonstrates the “accident chain” that happens by a simple minor distraction that can lead to massive consequences.

NHRA really needs to bring the fuel altereds back.
