I really want to put my '99 motor in the car. Its been sitting in the corner for almost 2 years. Should have built the bottom end with HD **** rather than stocks.

Welcome to 2005. It's called a tablet PC.

...so, a tablet pc then? ..... Several companies make tablets like that, you'll have to be more specific.

Funny **** just happened right now. So I'm walking to my office, and guess who I see pass by? Hyper. So I see him and I shake my head and laugh a little. He sees me. I cross the street and keep walking towards my building.

The guy ******* puts the car and reverse, comes back and a la Brian Spilner asks me about my car, and if I'm going to race him. So I said sure bud.

He then revs, and tries to peel out and fails!!!

Good way to start off my Thursday

Mind you all this right in front of the Courthouse.

I was reading about a vintage American V8 musclecar turbo build on another forum and saw this pic from the build thread. It has some nice fabrication in it.

He isn't finished putting it together yet, but can you spot the fail?

The closer they are to the throttle body the better, so AFTER the TB must be the best....right?

He was probably having issues with his clutch hydraulics.

EDIT:

Actually, he was pulled over for it...maybe that's why he was at the courthouse?

That dude looks like he put in some serious time and money for that build. Why in the **** would he be so stupid to do that? Geeze, old-school muscle needs a supercharger. Leave that turbo stuff to use I4 users, ha ha. Does anyone know if someone brought this to his attention and what his response was?

He works somewhere around here. I've seen him filing **** at the Clerk's office before. I think I'm gonna drop by and say hi on that thread.
