I remember it as well; it was quite as extreme as the Ford/Cosworth MAE where they are near vertical. I've given thought to this as wel as I have a damaged head that might be worth playing with.

Well, she will be delighted that you all have committed her to a poster for next year.

I do have the Formula 500 maybe that would be better for the whole racer X thing.

She asked me what I wanted for my birthday, so I told her "surprise me" and so she did. I framed it and hung it in the garage mahal.

Thanks for posting cool stuff Harry.

The L20 powered cars in my run group are belting out 200HP at the wheels. they get around 8-10 hours out of a motor.

I so want a Cosworth BDA for my car but that's not going to ever happen.

The video link works great....I've now got 6 hours of fun to watch.

It's official I'm an oblivious amatuer racer car driver

So I was in the process of taking apart the struts to install Koni race inserts and upon remove the left front wheel, I saw that the bolt holding the rod end to the sway bar was gone and the link was lying on the control arm. It's a bit of a mystery as I use nylock nuts on the link.

In my most recent race, around lap three the car development turn-in oversteer in higher speed corners (85-90mph)and in a particular right left right the front end felt like it was tripping over itself. I'd written this off to the tires being a year old, the KYB insert being cheap and 4-5 years old and my possibly overdriving the car.

My ignoring the oversteer is understandable given I'm stupid comfortable with oversteer but the front end should have been a red flag. Naturally I'll blame Stan because I was chasing him, it couldn't possibly be my questionable mechanical ability.

It also explains why I was so far of the lap times I thought I should be turning.

Of course if there was a disconnected sway bar alert in the car I still would have spent the next 6 laps trying to pass as many cars as possible.....cuz I'm oblivious.

Nick you have me beat; although we got the car in 84, I sold my car in late 98 becuase I had two other race cars. I then traded one of the two other race cars to get it back in early 03..........yes I cheated on my car.

A high school buddy bought our car in 1983, we bought it the following year. I've purchased 3 parts cars over the years. I probably should have kept at least one as I've got enough parts to have a fun street car.

So I'm rapidly approaching the 35th year of ownership of the Pokey and I've been on this site nearly for 17 years. I also know at there are folks who've probably owned their cars even longer.

So out of curiosity how long have you owned your car?
