Why can I completely picture that? Didn't we all do something stupid like that in h.s.? Whatever worked....

Nothing exciting now, a 08 F-150 Supercrew and a Mazda Tribute, but here are a couple I had back in the late 70's.

Edit:

My 02 Jetta that I miss, but it couldn't take the boost:

How much boost could it not take? Which tune, if you don't mind my asking?

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

It was Stage 3 Revo with a K04 turbo. I sold it at 80,000 miles. I don't think the rings liked it much, but it still ran. Just not for a daily driver. If I did it again, I would stick to stage 2 and be happy.

Here's one of the many projects we started. Want to turn it into a dune buggy, but haven't found the right body for it in good shape. I guess I forgot to take a pic when it was complete. All I have is the vid below...

I bought this a few years back, sold the lt1, and bought another engine to make a strip-only car, but free time is hard to come by these days...
This is the pretty side

The '89 K5 is looking good. I still can't believe you tracked it down. Not sure my daughter is going to be using my '72 as her daily driver-we'll wait and see.

My 16 year old drives it to school every day with her 14 yr old sister. So cute together...
