BDSM crap, been a long time now, none of us guys in that group do that anymore.....either retarred or making GOOD money on a real job....

but previous to those escapades, I clearly remember various guys.....

Douglas K? Johnson.....crook died long ago....Steve Szala...another venture in a speed shop....HE died long ago......was head of the operation.....Kevin Hester and Tony Gonyon.....crooks to the core and then William F. Tschanen one of the worst of the bunch a buddy of Johnson's.......and 'partner' in our venture.....selling web sites to small businesses.....

Good luck with the new setup Gene.
I have to agree with you that the C4 era F/I engines suck, literally from the vacuum issues.

Never go streaking in the dead of winter. Tahnk God it was night time so my shrinkage wasn't noticeable.... but my glowing white ass probably was
