Default '57 Nomad takes the lead

O.K......
I'm on I-80, commin' back from Winnimucca, Nevada. I'm pullin'a car trailer with my new 454 strapped on When...ZOOOOM...this '57 Nomad goes blowin' by me. Now mind you, I'm doin' 80 mph, and this guy just flys by.[sm=yikesomg.gif]

I run up to 90 mph just to get where I could take another shot.

I passed him just before we got to the truck, but as soon as it was clear, he came around me again!

I ran with him for about 120 miles, 'till we hit some twisties and he slowed down to 70, I went on around and cruised on into Reno. Lost him when he went on West, on I-80, and I went North on I-395.
Wasn't a race, but what a way to fly!

That's a nice looking Nomad, too. Always loved those, but, it like many many others, I will never own.

That is a cool looking Nomad, reminds me of one a classmate had in high school. Both of you pulling trailers going that fast must have been a sight!

I have been passed by big trucks pullin' trailers, that were doin' 90. This road, I-80, is kinda like America's Autoban. It's posted 75, but smokey won't site ya unless you're doin' over 100.(usually)

Oh sweet Lord, I love those tri-5's all done up purdy like like that. What a sweet car. And doin' all of 90 up and down the highways like that, brings new meaning to the expression "drive it like you stole it!!" Killer shots, bro, thanks for postin'!!

I did notice that the tow car had Nebraska plates. I'll just about bet he ran like that, for at least a 1000 miles. I wish I could have caught him at a rest stop, I REEEEEAAAAAALLLLLLY wanted a closer look at his car.

Drive it like he stole it? Maybe he did!

Ya dug deep to findthis post.
We have hwy 95 here in Nevada, it runs North from Vegas and then into Oregon. It cuts through the S. E. corner of Oregon, turns into Idaho, and then straight North to the Canadian border.
So....where is your "95"? Goin' through Nevada, you can cruise 80 all day. I take 95 North when I go to Idaho. Litterally miles and miles of straight, flat road. As much as 30 miles between turns that are so sweeping, ya don't even hav'ta slow down.
