Re: SVO: Modern Performance

I think a lot of you would never say another word if you would kindly take a
trip to the strip to watch Joe do a few runs in his Pinto.  The car amazes
people every time he shows up.  I went and met him in Carlsbad a few months
ago.  Some people in the stands were laughing (5.0 dorks) and were
commenting on how the "true muscle car" next to him was going to eat him for
breakfast.  When he did his burn out to warm up his tires they were even
laughing out loud because of the unimpressive decibal level it produced
during the burn.  They did not, however, say one motherf!@#ing thing when he
blew the doors off his competition and pulled off his first high 10.  Joe
knows what he is talking about.  I SAW it in action.  Perhaps I should video
tape it and mail it out to all the non believers.  The other thing that I
can't understand is that if someone has an opinion or wants to debate, just
take it with a grain of salt.  You can do what you want and spend your $ on
whatever suits your needs.  The beauty of this list is that after we come
back from the track, we can share notes and perhaps save some money by
avioding those "miracle" parts that drain your pocketbook.  I don't have
much to contribute yet since my SVO is in a million pieces in my garage
being restored, but I don't like it when people can't debate freely.  Keep
it coming guys,  I want to know what works and even though I'm just a roamer
at the moment I will give my $.02 when the time comes.
