Now go ahead and prove me wrong like a real guy.
I've got a datalog of 3 full gear 23psi pulls on a bone stock motor before it came apart. Virtual dyno says that's 353hp/298tq. 10 miles? More like 15 seconds.

I regularly reference that or Big Lebowski. Nobody ever follows... Obviously they're not golfers.

Yep, showed up fine.

BTW, you are REALLY going to like working on a Japanese car if you've grown accustomed to turning your own wrenches on Teutonic iron.

Okay sweet! Here are a ton of pics.

The day I bought her:





I thought she needed some customization so I plasti dipped (cant recommend this stuff enough) the side skirts, the side mirrors, and the wheels. At first I didn't know if I liked it all but it definitely grew on me, I wouldn't have it any other way now.








New license plate:




after a much needed tailight resto:




Honorary picture of one of my cats on the hammer:

Not a huge Beetle fan, but I'm definitely digging the CitroŽn. What's the story on that one?

Its actually my dad's car. Its a 1960 Citroen 2cv. It was imported a long time ago and purchased from fantasy junction about 7 years ago. If you look on their website you'll see the kinds of cars they're selling.. the 2cv was the cheapest car they've ever sold.

Very nice Porsche, awesome license plate, and kudos for the totally random 2CV.

It looks like you are off to a great start in life. Stay humble and don't be a stereotype.
