The 'ME' free guitar thread.

Look, truth is I dont own a Jem (real) and always wanted one.


My story:

I own my own business and I have over 15 full time employees to do my bidding. (<although I never graduated from high school)

I have a hottie wife, a very cute 2yo little boy and a Lab/Sheppard mix dog named Ginger.

I own 20X+ guitars; a very nice Les Paul Custom, rare PRS, Strat to name a few and many of them rare-collectors guitars including a few classical guitars valued in the 15-30K$ area.

I also have my own race team and run 3 different vehicles on the salt flats, and have a few world landspeed records (hence the name), and will be running at the big show 'Speed Week' this August.

I also have a few classic vehicles....

I am no 'bla, bla, poor me' guy. I could afford to buy a Jem but I would much rather someone just send me one. It could even be broken, ugly, damaged or even parts, I dont care as long as its a real jem and not a fake.


I will be glad to pay shipping.

Thanks!

~JH

Re: The 'ME' free guitar thread.

On the flats?

Give me a run in one of the record holders, primed for another record of course! That's on par with a JEM

I'm calling BS!!!!

You know you'd give up a JC for a chance at 300+MPH!!!!

200 is good enough for a JEM (70v)

Re: The 'ME' free guitar thread.

It would take 300+ to even get me interested.

I am targeting 400mph in 14-15!


Rookie drivers must stage up in licensing, meaning that a person first must do a run of 125-150, then 150-175, then 175-200 and so on until you reach 250 where you can then drive any speed greater then 250mph. So to go 300 you would have to make a series of runs.

Its funny this was mentioned, a team was selling seat time and a garrenteed red hat (Bonneville 200mph club) [record was like 215 in the class]to help support their team for 10K$ a few years ago. I dont think I am ready to trade 'seat' time for a guitar!

Re: The 'ME' free guitar thread.

It's not the hot wifey, but it'll do for now

So what happens if you have a heavy foot and "accidently" do 250 on your 150 run?

Something that flagrant would get you banned from running the event and get your ass chewed up one side then the other. Plus the officials would be watching you like a hawk, for instance even in future events if there is anything in tech was on the fence about you would not get any breaks.

(Just an example based on my experiences)

-Fuel to get to the event 750$ (one way).
-Hotel 1200$ (1 room) for the event NON refundable and purchased 6 months in advance (X3 rooms for crew, they help chip in for rooms however)
-Entry fee for race per class 500$
-Event race fuel (usually runs about 200$)

All told it cost me about 10K$ to run 1 event.
The reason I tell you the expense is because it would be a real bummer to spend that sort of coin and put that much blood into a project just to be told to go home.




Here is a little story.....


About 5 years ago I spun my ModSports over 200. The car spun about 15 times before I could pull the chute (you dont want the cord wrapping around the wheels).

After the car stopped I was really excited....mostly because I didnt die.....So I pulled a 'shooter Mcgavin' hand gesture (from happy gilmore) just as the first emergency crew came roaring up, (*they already started the life flight heli and had ambulances ready....common procedure for spins that fast).

The first on scene was a high ranking safety official (now is a buddy). Needless to say he was less then impressed with my 'making a joke' out of the whole deal. I got my ass chewed big time...and he was right to. Later in the event someone with a similar narrow wheelbase car died (friends with the team) who was going SLOWER then my car when it spun (his rolled however).

I didnt mean to be long winded about this.....but I can assure you....you wouldnt do it again!!!!
