    Drag Race: Bugatti Veyron vs. Eurofighter Typhoon

    Ran across this link and thought some of you might get a kick out of it.

    Drag Race

    I used to enjoy watching the military jets doing touch and go landings when I worked at the airport in Albuquerque. Never did try to race one, though.

    The guy in the jet was too far off the ground.

    I meant to mention...I believe saw brand new Bugatti a few weekends ago in Brentwood. Not positive it was the Veyron, but it sure looked the same.

    Simon Cowell, of American Idol fame, just bought a Bugatti. $1.5 million. Pretty, but you can't haul hogs or hay in it.
