    Drive it like a tractor, pick a gear and use it, or like the old mini start in second change to fourth. The only difference is if you hit the gas and it does not break loose then you will need a glass floor to see where you are going.

    Vw bugs were death traps. My dad had the 1.6l double carburettor version of it and he said, with the engine in the rear and the low weight front, its road grip sucked, especially in wet conditions.

    I like sleepers, especially ones that appear this stock. Now about that E85, it may be clean burning but the energy to convert grain to ethanol pollutes as much as gasoline when it's all said and done.

    Mopar nerd here, I think the Cuda is Vitamin C, 4-spd RR is Tor-Red, and the Auto RR, is Bahama Yellow- Butterscotch at Dodge. Total nerd. A place called Mopar Ponderosa is up here, the guy bought the $3.5m HemiCuda sold at Mecum. Best part is Terry going back to his service days. I think your Pearl Harbor story validated you in his eyes and he really opened up. You made his day! H-excellent vid. Ü

    That’s about the stupidest thing that you would ever do to a race engine is to put a dog box in there so you could grind the gears and potentially ruin the whole thing

    Well WOOF! - I've known Terry for about 10+ years and watched him build a good number of those cars and his Naval collection. Terry is a man who is very much alive in his pursuit of fun activities. Even several heart surgeries during the last year didn't slow him down. The Doctor would tell him slow down and the next day you'd see him out on his property moving dirt, building a wall or something as unusual as a rocket or miniature submarine. He'll be one of those people you hear about that will arm wrestle with God over bargaining for just a little more time to complete the 27 major projects that he would like to finish before he "steps out". Nicole, good on you for your boldness on the track and in life. Thank you for taking your time and $$$ to bring to awareness that real people (such as yourself) and real life exists beyond Hollywood movies and game-boy fantasies.
