Honestly...With this new msn thing, my friends pictures are of expensive ass Aston martins, Ferraris, street bikes etc. Mine is my 510 :-)

See, I wouldn't give a shit about driving a 510 on pavement and not the showroom floor, or the Autobaghn..

If I owned a Ferrari Enzo, a $690,000 car, that fucker isn't going to leave the garage. I'd keep it as a paperweight, because a scratch would denote it's perfect harmony of being a fucking... 690-thousand dollar paperweight.

What's the point of owning it then? Bragging rights? What bragging rights are there on a car you're just keeping to make money off of? That's more of being a stock broker then a car guy.

Agreed. There is absolutely no point to owning nearly the best performing production car on the planet and not drive it. You don't even have to race it. Just drive it. If you're interested in an investment, buy some beanie babies.

If it wasn't dark out right now, You'd be seeing a picture of the hood on my car with the engine NOT hitting it!

SWEET AS! Only problem is, now my shifter leans to the pass side quite a bit. I could fix this, but I would have to take a hammer to my oil pan, So as long as I can find a place that will bend my shifter for me, HIZZAH! I'm happy.

I slotted a Zed mount on the pass side, however it wasn't going down enough, So I basically cut it into 3rds. The middle piece I cut in a pie shape and welded the two ends together, and altho it's on a slightly weird angle, the rubber mount made up for it. WOO!

Well, I just came back one last time to show you guys.. Well basically just show Byron as I have most of you on Msn anyways, that altho I have to work some bugs out.. Like the fact that it won't start without priming the intake with a few cap fulls of gas, and that it likes to shake, that i've got it running.

A few problems I ran into were... I had the fuel pump wired up backwards so it was just sittin' there blowin' bubbles into the gas tank. And for the first 15 minutes of tryin' to get it going I had forgotten to plug the computer in. ...So that was a little set back.

I've now got a remote battery located in the trunk, Vw aluminium rad, dual 5/16 fuel lines running up to the front, for now i'm using the stock 510 mechanical fan... Just hadto remove a pulley and hizzah, it works. Oh yea, 510 water pump and pulley. I've got a 225mm clutch, with the Zed 5spd. Whatelse.... Whatelse..... ofcoarse 60amp IR alt, 1-7/8 into 2-1/4 exhaust, And soon enough a 240sx windshield wiper motor and 280zx front struts/brakes etc. not to forget the 15/16 dual master, WOO!

Anyways if you see me booting around, hopefully within the next week or two, gimme a wave. I'll see you all around sometime...

Bye all!

and ofcoarse.... The Movie, WOO!! <--Clicky Clicky.
