finally found the pics of my old 626:











Basically stripped it out, added a boost gauge, a 3lb plastic seat, and ran 15psi (overboost was a buzz killer).

Wasn't registered, and never went through inspection...so fun to hit the streets of Richmond at night with it and disappoint the ricers and mustangs.

I miss that thing, I really do. I sold it to basically get back what I put into it, and the guy was a real enthusiast and immediately started restoring it, painted it and built the motor. Never was able to get a followup.

I'm basically weaving around a double looped core, so when you pull from the open end, the loops in the core pull through and it all comes unraveled. Not sure what you call the pattern. I think it's called a "blaze bar". Google that and you will have your answer I think. It's really not that tough once you do it a few times and get the feel for it down.

Something like that, but I start with a shackle at the looped end, which makes it easier than holding it freehand. That also is weaving around single strands, which won't make it "quick deploy" like mine, where I can pull it free easily. Same principle though.

My engine blew [while only doing about 90 on the Sebring back straight, since I was headed to the pits], vapor line melted, fire in my face from the hood and 8ft flames from the back leaving a 20ft wall of flames behind the car. Heavy smoke from the hood, back and center console….. on fire 3.5 minutes. Engine gone, carbon fiber bottom parts of chassis bubbled from heat, rear body completely gone, suspension and brake parts melted in back. Totaled per ins. co. A hell of an experience, but I managed to actually remain completely calm and composed throughout, not my normal expected response…

Note to TrackGuys.com about corner worker:
I've always had great things to tell everyone about your event and absolutely enjoy participating, but I need to share a large concern I now have. When I made it to the corner worker and got out of my burning car, I expected them [her] to at least be approaching my car with a fire extinguisher, but that was NOT the case. This worker, though I have nothing but respect for them all, was an elderly lady, over 60, and had no place being a corner worker. If I had not made it to her side of the barrier, there was NO WAY she could have ever jumped the barrier to bring the fire extinguisher. As it was, I was yelling at her as to why she wasn't coming over to my car with the extinguisher. She was completely unable to get the pin removed and was frozen in place trying to get it off. I had to GO TO HER station and first take off a WIRE TIE, in addition to a zip tie holding the pin, before I could take the pin out and fight the fire MYSELF. This cost about 30 seconds. It had taken me about 5 seconds to get out for the car because I'd forgotten that GM forces you to fist unlock the door before you can hit the exit button. Heaven forbid I was trapped in the car. I would have had absolutely no help from this elderly corner worker. It took another 30-60 seconds for the fire crew to show up and they did an admirable job, but that could have been a total of a minute and a half I may have been stuck in a burning car with no help. This could have been much more tragic. Thank the Lord everything turned out OK for me, but I URGE you to review the corner worker situation in case any other serious situation occurs. We need to have trust and faith in the corner workers, even though we hope to never need them. I do not have that trust in these corner workers at this point.

I'll upload the accompanying pics in a second.

Holy ****!!!

It was even a Touring!!! AWESOME.

The overboost issue is a non-issue these days.

That thing looked clean as hell, i ALMOST wish mine was that clean, but it's almost more fun as dirty beater status. And honestly... it LOOKS better when it's dirty as ****. Kindof a "grizzled warrior" type deal.

I really wish I kept it. It even had the adjustable suspension! I sold my drumset to buy it. Decided it was too hard to deal with two cars in college and having to constantly repark them for street cleaning and sold it. Plus it needed a windshiled and tires to pass inspection and I didn't have the cash.

now i miss both the drumset and car. frowny face.
