Curious what you did to the 2nd Gen. It was pretty quick (complete with belching flames from the exhausts - pretty funny!).

Cheers,

Yes, it was an older fella with another male passenger.

What has he done to that thing? He did pretty well - about as quick as a C5 Vette IMO. He seemed like a nice fella & he got off on tye Magdelana exit I believe?

See ya,

Hey, were you driving up Alberta off of Sunnyvale-Saratoga/De Anza in the afternoon today?

I was backing out of my cousin's driveway in my black TII when a yellow fd passed by. (Then I stalled)

Err, no. It got pulled pretty bad but it was still very quick for a 2nd Gen.

Bunchies, no. That was not me. Here is a pic of my car.

Hi Matt: Yep, that was me. Wow, your yellow FD is beautiful... and you really smoked me.

You seemed to shift twice while pulling strong. What gear did you downshift into?


I'm the original owner of the vert and Dave provided a serious character upgrade with the cosmo and the hybred turbo. We'll have to try 280 again next year, after Dave upgrades the turbo.

I'm in Los Altos. Where are you?

Cheers,

Walt

Nice to meet you Walt! You have a nice Vert my friend - very cool Buddy.

I live off Basom in San Jo, you know ;o)

I only shifted once....from 3rd to 4th. What you heard was me letting off the gas & coasting before I braked to get down to "legal" speed. I'm upgrading from my little stock twins soon - just been busy modding the SLK lately.

See ya,
-Matt
