Hey Mike that reminds me of when we would go "banking", which involved driving down a one lane road with snow banks over the roof of the car and bouncing from one side to the other, lots of fun when your 17 and bullet proof. It was all fun until one night my buddy busted through a snow bank and we dropped 6 feet into a field in his dad's Toyota Land Cruiser. It all came home the next morning when his dat went to change a mysterious flat tire and he could not jack up the car because the frame was broken. Lots of young men looking at the ground and shrugging their shoulders...sorry for the thread hijack Gator!i had a 69' single port beetle, i beat that poor car relentlessly, then after a motor went bad(blew up).
i Hadda get a motor, of course stock was not for me, there were many, many paychecks spent "upgrading" a crate motor.
my idea of a good time was racing Mustangs and Camaros just to see their expression when i was door to door with them,(or better)
they never could believe it , i'd just laugh.
i used to pray for rain so i could go out and drift the old bug like i was a professional stuntman, or so i believed at the time.
man that was a lot of fun, trying to get it out of shape only to bring it back from assured destruction...
did i mention, i'm a little Kooky when it comes to Horsepower and things with 2 or more wheels???
