    Let me know and we'll meet there! It's a pretty neat place and I'm sure the Tuner exhibit will be badass! They wanted my 510 cause they said the 510 was "the car that started the tuner craze". It really was! I'm hoping mine gets the spotlight 😍

    I'm pretty stoked! Another bit of good news!! My 510 has been chosen to be in the Tuner Exhibit at Lemay Auto Museum. It's starts in November. My car will be there until April. Can't believe it came from a pile of shit to a museum display piece 😂🤣 I will miss her a ton but I can visit when ever I want and I'll have her back by car show/autocross season next summer. I also have the 914 to cut up and fix during the winter. That should be on the road by summer also. I'll let the wifey drive the Porsche to the shows and I'll drive the 510 😍 I have to make the Porsche "daily drivable" per her instructions. No race car disguised as a show car 😏

    So I mentioned on instagram that I want to eventually build a Porsche 914 and my buddy immediately sent me a text saying he knew where I could find one... I might have just made the biggest score yet.... Two 914's. One rusty silver car with a motor full of water but a bunch of good parts. A black one with a Chevy 350 that supposedly runs and drives. I scored them both for $850... I'm picking them up Sunday and will strip the silver one and then put the black one together so I can test drive before I blow it apart and fix everything. I do know someone put a pulley driven external water pump on which is cool because the firewall is intact... Poor motor is full of water....

    Video from the Z06 on the last pull. He owned me over 100 but then again I'm driving a brick 😂🤣 https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Cx5hZclVDzQgwphTmL6m1Kw2zx7Yuy5i/view?usp=drivesdk

    Went to a car show today. It was a good turn out! A employee from Lemay Auto Museum stopped by and asked me to submit my car for a new exhibit they're planning based on "Tuner Cars". It would mean my car being on display for months but it might be something cool to do. I emailed them the info so we'll see. Not sure I can be without my baby... I told the wife I'd have to get another project to fill the spot... I then went for a road trip to Port Townsend and seen some friends and family. On the way home... I ended up racing a Z06 Vette.. 🤣😂 We did three rolling pulls from 50 to somewhere north of 100.. he said he gave it all he had to keep up with me.. it was like there was a rope connecting both cars. Neither gained or lost ground the whole way. Crazy. I'm running my own base tune at 6.5psi and I pulled about 3-4deg of timing out of her.. Once I get forged Pistons, crank up the timing and 15psi she's gonna be a street slayer.. He said he got video of the last pull so we'll see if he sends it to me...

    I was losing traction in high speed corners with the inside wheel at the autocross. It must be the VLSD just can't handle the power.. I found a CLSD R160 with 3.7's instead of 4.11's which will be nice on the highway. The car has so much torque it shreds the pavement launching in 1st gear. I think 3.7's will be fine 🤣 I'll put the halfshafts back in with the new diff. If all is well I'll convert to 930 CV"s later. No action shots. Next time.

    I had the dash pad sanded and recovered in suede to match the steering wheel 😍 And put the dash back together...

    The car is moving to Instagram for the most part but here's some pics from today. I autocrossed her yesterday and she did really well. When you launch from the start line it squats down and just fucking shreds the pavement. It's pretty intense. Only flaw was the VLSD was getting over powered on fast corners and the inside wheel was losing traction. I just bought a R160 CLSD so that goes in next. It rained like hell on the way home so I washed and waxed her for the first time today. Maybe I'll put the driver door lock on one of these days...
