After a very very long day... Holly and I where headed home from my brothers house in Enumclaw. We just got back from our road trip to Oregon. We got the 521 frame for Beebani, thanks a million man! Also stopping at Steve the Engineer's place to get some megasquirt goodies. (Thanks dude, I cant wait to get started on the EFI) Okay now for the Skyline part :D Holly and I where cruising the 620 down the aqua duct, when in my mirror a car comes flying up behind us. By this point we are under Seattle, you know the part, the tunnel doglegs.... Okay so there are a few cars which made him get behind me to make his way around a slow ass SUV. Once I see it in my side mirror I know what it was and don't let this opertunity slip by me. He pulls around me to get infront of the SUV I downshift and pin it at the exact moment he goes by. I quickly get behind him. I'm not really gaining on him but I'm not loosing much ground ether :D So by the end of third gear I need to get over and take the next exit. I thought that was the end of my story until a few stoplights later when he pulls up next to me with his window down. "Hey man what do you got in that thing." Shit, I've been up since 5am and I'm kinda out of it but I manage to answer a few of his questions. He said he was really amazed when he looked in his mirror and I was right behind him. He also asked if it was turboed, I told him "Not yet" It was just sweet to get so many compliments from a dude driving a skyline. I didn't expect it at all.

If this makes no sense I only slept for about 3 hrs last night. and I've been awake since 5am I just had to share this story before bed. :D good night.

Thats what I was thinking, especially in a 620. Who in a skyline would race a 620? he said he got it a week or so ago. I guess he must just be racing anything willing :D

Dude when I was a Steves he was showing me his laptop hooked up to megasquirt. Holy shit its bad as. So I borrowed his ecu tester so I can get to work on mine.

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

that's pretty cool dude. not to steal the spot light but i remember what it was like with my repu, an old rust bucket with guts. it feels good to blow away or at least keep up with fast cars in a little truck.
