Well when you guys list your stories, I like them...but they get hard to find and read when separated by a bunch of other pics of cars then you cannot comment on them, and get the praise they need for the hard work.

Rule: Post a Story, or Comment on one, or GTFO. Thank you


So here's my story,

A bunch of muscle heads were at the drag strip this weekend, there was also a car show in the far yard of the drag strip. We'll they started talkin **** on my rx-8, so one of the guys said:"My hemi will beat any ricer", well that got me steamed, so I challenged him to a pink slip race.



I won by a nose, but I couldn't understand why I beat him, his hemi was pushing twice the power my rx-8 had. so wee took it to my dads garage later that night (while he wasn't around). We started taking off the grill and bumper, so we could pull the motor out and see the damage done by this nimrod.



When we got the motor out we sat it on a stand on the floor, took the air cleaner off only to reveal a METHANOL carb! Now I'm really questioning this pink slip win. So we unbolted the valve cover.



More to come.....

As promised the continuation....

The heads and intake were next to come off, and then we saw the problem this motor had with keeping up with my little motor, This dumb*** had a methanol carb...with STOCK internals, The pistons were scared and scratched, the rods were bent. this was no overnight project.



we took the rods and pistons out....(trashed). took a good look at the crank, thankfully he must not have ran it very long on methanol. Replaced the rods and pistons with forged internals. installed the heads and intake. Kept the methanol carb.




Dropped the motor back in the car, and bolted up the bumper and grill back on the car.



After the motor was dropped in we looked over the rest of the car, none of us liked the stance, so we put this bad boy on the lift to inspect the undercarriage.



Took off the wheels and tires, hoping dad had some universal rims in the back, we went in back to look and found 19" American Racing Magnum rims!



We just got done polishing those rims when we heard the roar of a loud V8! Holy **** DAD'S BACK!



He didn't seem pissed when he first walked in, but then he asked how i obtained this beauty. I told him how this guy was running his mouth and i raced him for pinks. KABOOM! Dad blew up, "what if you lost" blah blah blah....He was starting to piss me off. When he finally quit b****ing i threw him the keys and said happy birthday Dad, and walked out of the shop.

He now drives it on the weekend on nice days, He's still thanking me for it today :lol

Well one day I was driving along in my Golf at high speeds. A local cop gave chase, but I evaded him by forcing him off the road into a tree. Unfortunately, more cops joined in. I drove off of a cliff to get away. I died in the crash, so I wasn't able to get any pics. :P
