Default I Can't drive 55

So this last year I was called by Sammy Hagars production staff, to cameo in a video with Him and the Fontana Police Department. An offer I jumped on.

I ended up trailing it down to Fontana Ca. for the Video shoot.


Check it out!!

It was a wild ride!.. having streets shut down and burn thru the tires!.. whew what a rush!

We did some other shots in a parking lot, that is getting edited, that was the most fun i've had an opportunity to have, with my car, that we did several re-takes of. Spinn'n donuts, 360's, drifting, getting followed by a chase cam.. it was an amazing time.

How fun was that!
My wife is a huge Sammy fan. We used to see him every year including on stage one year. In February we even went to his bar in Cabo San Lucas.
Totally jealous, congrats!

Finally got a chance to watch the video on something other than a phone...looked like it was a blast! Something you'll always remember I'm sure.

Definitely one to remember!.. I haven't posted about the Beach Party Concert and Car Show, in Huntington Beach that was a once in a lifetime experience. Truly memorable!

I'll take it.... lol... Still get goosebumps thinking about it... and that would be one of the first times I got leg cramps from pumping/feathering the throttle with brake and double clutching! Bad ass time!

What was funny was that the cops, wanted to each ride in the car with...
..but ended up only one guy, with the Sargent calling the cameras off, since they were in uniform...

Blowing donuts and the cops giving you thumbs up... must be dreaming
And Sammy is a genuine nice guy, at least when we met him he was.

Our sheriffs dept. here did the lip sync challenge last year and used Bill Elliott in his foxbody mustang that he just flogs everywhere he goes in it. It was cool. Even used the same “I can’t drive 55” song as this.
Art, in the credits, your car is listed as a 69’...
