I met my dad for breakfast this morning and pulled into the parking lot and parked next to a yellow CJ5. It was pretty cool and I figured I'd check it out when I left. Well,
must be stalking me because when I came out, this is what was parked next to me. Geeez, even my life has turned into a VW thread.

I hadnt fished for many years before the first time I ever cast a line into Pueblo Res. It was from the shoreline straight out into deep water with a Yamamoto plastic worm, the rig sank for several seconds and when it hit bottom something nailed it hard and took off, my pole about broke in half and the 10lb line snapped faster than I could even react. After that I always made sure my drag was set right for the line I was using. Doh!!!

Jim Busby would leave drag racing and find his fame in road racing during the 1970s and 80s. This car was probably the most expensive Top Fueler ever built relative to the era in which it debuted. The final cost was pushed to near 100 grand (in 1969 dollars!) due to cost of the rare Indy Fords used in the car.

Above and below show just what a lack of border security there was between San Diego and Ti Juana... passing over was not even noticeable. Now, it's normally an hour or 2 of sitting in traffic, at least, to get into the US.

on both my 96 and 88 i mounted the relay over top the big hole for the core support. leaves it higher up to not go underwater as easy, the big wires reached still. can still access pretty easy by removing the grille. my 96 has an aftermarket billet grille but my 88 has the original and it fit no without interference

Iíd be interested to see how you end up mounting the transformer that is supposed to mount to the top on the brake bracket. Iím having a time getting mine figured out without cutting into the grille or body panel under the grille (to make space for the cables and such).

Jay Leno's crew wrapped up a replica of that MB hauler that someone else had started, if I remember the story correctly. It was Gorgeous.
I'd rather have this one though:
