Gatlin with Seagrave in Fla.

People who don’t know much about sports cars always assume it’s a “Ferrari”. I’m guessing it’s the same Porsche he bought a few years ago which is probably a GT2. You don’t see GT2’s on the road THAT much. Another guess woud be a Carrera GT, because it does look like a mix of a Ferrari or a Masserati but that car is 500k!!:eek:

When Josh Ross first made the scene here as a sprinter Mitsubishi sponsored him with a hot looking Lancer, last time I spoke to him Mercedies were going to sponsor him with one of their sports cars. Gatlin was a lot faster so I assume he would have got a sponsorship with a car, all I wanted was a supra, ha.

As much as I have picked on LS I know he is a thinking coach and as a team they should go well, lord knows we need a couple of more quick runners and the saying is white men can’t run - or was it can’t jump.

Well…Ocho Cinco had checks refused, but made his own SUV out of a bus…

A supra… Yea they are quick… A second generation caught up to me after I left him at the stoplight in a 5.0. That was not suppose to happen…lol

Wait till i get my ISf

In their day they were the fastest street registerable race car in the world. On the drag strip 400m in under 7s without muscling up the bottom end. Usain Bolt on wheels.

7sec!? on a stock block!? Regardless, I know the fastest production car around that era was the 1987 Buick GNX but General Motors pulled it from the lineup because it was betting the flagship Corvette (gasp). Not sure when the Supra came in the mix but I do know they can roll. DAM you import guys with them turbos…lol

BTW, Asafa Powel has a Nissan Skyline. And I know Ato Bolden is into fast cars too. Nothing too hot in his stable though; just the basic turn key factory performance, nothing wicked custom. Hmmm, this must be another trait of sprinters; FAST CARS!!! Even Ben had that ugly (but fast) black Ferrari Testarossa . He should have gotten the Ferrari F-40 during his day!!!

Had to look that up… Is that a Lexus right?

The Lexus is the Supra(2 door) Soarer (4 door) stage2. In my back yard is a 2,000 model soarer, has the Supra suspension and a 2.5, 6 cylinder twin turbo, it is also the first Lexus.

yea i plan on getting one once they drop under 40k

Besides talking about cars - Anyone got any latest news on Gatlin?

Is this really Gatlin?

6.50 to 50m. great:cool: :rolleyes:

LMFAO!!! I ran 5.9 today and that was on sore legs.

maybe was 60…:slight_smile: lets hope so…other wise…run 12 .5 would be a miracle:)

There’s no way Gatlin would be running as slow as 6.50 50m if he’s in any reasonable shape whatsoever.

OK a 6.5 60 more than likely at practice hand time is also slow for a pro.

I suppose they could have somo photocells…6.50 ( with gun start or beep signal)…would be definitely fast…

eroszag–Very very few people in the US actually use electronic timing in practice on any sort of regular basis, if ever. HSI and Sprint Capital HT’d almost everything and I’m going to take a wild guess and say Gatlin is the same way.

6.5 in a 60, 55, or 50 is slow for a top sprinter.
