    Got the car back for the weekend to get a feel for everything and see how it holds up. Car is stupid fucking fast and easily one of the most fun I've ever had in a street car. Took it through Malibu today and all the way up through oxnard for a total 120 mile loop around los angeles. Temps remained low and the car runs better than I could ever expect. My only concerns are the alignment and the clutch holding up. I can feel it slipping already. Need to step up to a dual friction I think...

    The 502 is stupid explosive when you want it to be, and tame like a Honda at a stop light or just cruising. I had to fill up TWICE today. I think its averaging around 8mpg. :bowrofl:

    should have seen the guys face in the new m3 today :rofl:

    Egged him into a 60-90mph pull and the guy didn't stand a chance. The motor pulls SO hard on the freeway its almost scary.

    Well duh. Plus, vintage is always waaaaaaaaay cooler than new.


    My pops has a '67 with a blown 383, a 427 Split Window Vette, and a Z06. I let him drive my M Coupe today (he's in town for the week), and he was seriously impressed, which shocked me a bit.

    Totally different animals. I love the power delivery on a modern car like an m3, 997 or sl55, but it simply doesn't compared to the torque of a big block in an old muscle car.

    My brother in law's 997 is supercharged by evo and put down 430rwhp so it should be a damn fun race to watch. I plan on youtubing it.

    no motor that makes 500+hp is going to get decent mileage. I can't imagine FI improving mpg either.

    Having a 5th gear would definitely help though, but I like the fact that the muncie and rear end are original to the car.
