    My new record, 648 miles this weekend. Asheville NC, Blue Ridge Parkway, great new friends, incredible scenery, Grove Park Inn, all in a former 348 Challenge. I love to drive this car.

    Yes, you apparently can drive a former track prepared 348 Challenge on the street!

    No air, but interior was added back to the car.

    With such great routes on the Blue Ridge Parkway, a world class resort like Grove Park Inn, as well as Asheville NC, why not a FCA event or drive?

    AWESOME footage!

    Driver(s) should learn how to heel and toe and/or match revs on downshift... Will make the experience that much more exhilarating!

    Love the tunnel!

    From the last little section that shows the tunnel...i think its a MB AMG of some sorts. Looked a lot like the interior of a C43 AMG i sat in.

    Yeah it is my CLK-430 that has a few mods.

    I was the one driving in the last 15-30 seconds so I was taking it easy on the shifts didn't want to jam it up in there like you would with anything else.

    David I had an awesome time and appreciate everything! I'll get a cd of video/pictures together and send it to you. I'll call you when it is ready.

    Yes you can drive it on the street that does not make it street legal though.
    You can also drive 170Mph on the street, that is not legal either.

    With street int. you will likely never asked or stoped but that again still does not make it legal.
