The new back driveway is completely finished and I can drive on it!

The concrete is cured enough to drive on, the dirt has been pushed back in place and now it just needs good watering so that the grass will come through.
I guess it was worth waiting 16yrs to finally get it done!

Driveway.....1/8th mile track with a very mild apex....whatever it is that sure is sweet. Pretty damn cool.

I see you have a nice burnout area by the end there

As usual, Andy is right
If it doesn't fit, force it. If it breaks, it needed to be replaced anyway.

Re: The new back driveway is completely finished and I can drive on it

One really nice thing about it, my ole beater 51 Chev and Zac's 68 (without a frontend) are now out of the front driveway. The neighbors never complained, but I'm sure they appreciate not seeing a couple of ole beaters in front of the house in their neighborhood.

Crap! The roads here aren't that nice. Looks 3 lanes wide compared to ours. Looks nice, Tom.

Looks great. I bet you end up putting up a "Private Drive, Keep out", sign after a few people mistake it for a street and start to drive down it.

Or a "Dead End-No Outlet" sign up at the street.

So what was the final-total cost if you don't mind, Tom?
My Asphalt drive was $9,500.00 (for a $5,000. hurry up job)

Very nice!
