Me2...I think Tucker would have written me a check right then for HOOTERS if I'd let him. lol

I used to LOVE riding my 3 wheeler on the trails. It will probably be scarier up in the air and with alot more money in my jeep, though! Can't wait to get out there and try it!


ps oh, and Sneaks...here's my disclaimer: you DO know I wasn't driving my own car at Beach Bend, right?
Oh, I knew it was Datas Z Liz. Kinda hard to mistake his with any other. Even when he forgets to put the plates on it to drive to the golf course. :smilelol:
It was funny as he!! to see that truck pulling on the Z from the dig. I'd have liked to get a pic of his face right about then!

It was pretty fun that weight made a 2 second difference in the truck, too.

Every run in it, I was 2 seconds faster than he was.

And don't forget consistent! 14.7 14.7 14.7 14.7 or something like that, if I remember right.
He did spot you well over a hundred pounds though.

Just wait a bit, I'm trying to mod some Halos with Clear lenses. I recently installed some custom clear front corner housings and clear rear side markers so I'm going to try and continue that theme around to the rear end...

Here's the fronts, I had to do some wiring to get em to function like this though;





And a fairly bad video!

I was a little startled by the water rushing up over the nose and did not get it turned off in time and it sucked up water and stalled. By the time the tow truck got there, the water was around three feet deep.

Stereo & amp were FUBAR, Interior needed to be stripped and replaced, engine needed a LOT of work to get it back right again....it was going to cost me a fortune to get it back. I had spent close just shy of 25K putting in the ZZ4 crate motor, JET underdrive pulleys and computer, stereo/alarm, C4 body upgrade (it was an 85 with the 96 body kit), hood, paint, Lingenfelter injectors, ZR-1 wheels, etc. I loved the car, but was not willing to put as much $$$ into it as it needed...plus it gave me an excuse to finally get a C5 vert.
