Aww. I wanted to show you my car on Google Street View, but they only did my main road and not my local street! Why not have my street, which is paved and has lots of houses on it, but have the parking lot for a remote trail? Check this out, the parking lot for Stevens Trail in Colfax, CA. Click up and down the road. There's nothing there!!!

Anyway, here's my car (after a trip to Tahoe in winter weather). The hole next to the fog light is for the laser (laser cruise control):

That one was pretty dirty. Here's a slightly shinier, happier view of my car, and Jacquie's Solara in the garage. Plus there are about 40 unicycles in there, but you can't see them from here.

No, it doesn't look like that every day at my house.

Ford Escort ZX2 Turbo Build

About a year ago, my son Ben sold his jeep and bought a '98 Escort ZX2. Eventually he found the ZX2 forums and started to study. Recently, he attended a meet in Cleveland, Ohio where he did some drag racing, worked on cars, etc. By the time he got home from the meet, his turbo system arrived in the mail and he started to build. He is doing an amazing job and I have been very impressed not to mention extremely proud of my son.

The project has come along nicely and is working so far, but needs some more work and adjustments. Ben also is doing an interior swap from two interiors he bought from a local junkyard. It is going to be one nice little vehicle. His quarter mile runs at the meet were 16.5. With his turbo, he expects to see 13 or 14 seconds or better.


His very well covered gallery and progress reports are here: http://teamzx2.com/showthread.php?t=16639

Notice the unicycles hanging in the garage?

naa I prefer the earlier minis like the Mk 1s, I cant do anything to this mini for a few years, until my insurance goes down, but I want some of the little 6 by 10 inch black minilites.

Don't froget to change the cam bearings while you're in there. It's a £35 job for a machine shop but well worth it in the long run. Just don't ding them as you slide the cam back in.
