WHAT WERE YA DOING IN MY NECK OF THE WOODS

Hey Stormin norman. You car looked good. So you were my neighborhood. I live right around the corner. What was going on @ bergwerks what did glen havwe done to his automobile.

Did you take a good look @ my big brake setup. If your interested my friends @ stoptech has a few more sets. My car and my partners cars are the prototypes. The thing stops on a dime.

All these 500's need bigger brakes. My car is soo much more balance,aslo changed out my Original master cyl. I rec to do this if your car is rounding 10 yrs or better.

Maybe wil meet another day. im think somewhere down south,say southcaost plaza, then cruise down to newport. I wish I could of went with you guys. But My G/F's sister Bday up in beverly hills couldn't get out of that one.

Talk to yA

GUIDO

Guido, long time no see! When can I see that brake setup? Do you need 18" rims to run the big rotors? And when can I see your seat repair? I was hoping to see you last Saturday - I was only minutes away, waiting with Ernesto while you were intercepting the storm-trooper Norm'!

Great to see you Guido, for that brief moment ... and yes, I couldn't keep my eyes off of your brakes ... I couldn't look you in the eyes!!! LOL It felt like I was looking at Pamela Anderson and I couldn't get my eyes to move up!

It was great seeing Mark, Ernesto and Glen ... we basically were shot'n the ***** for about an hour or so. Then Glen and I went up to see Carl at Bergwerks. Glen and I purchased the First Gear Start kits from Carl.

I'm planning on going to the Palos Verdes Concours de Elegance at Ocean Trails G.C. (Trumps new acquisition!) ... www.pvconcours.com ... September 13/14 - Saturday or Sunday. Hope we see each other there, as well as others!

Adio

LOCALS only!!! hehe

Cool . First gear start. I have to have my trans overhauled, its a factroy exchane but it shifts to sloppy. Mark has his redone. @ my work I think, didn't you mark. Have to trans gone through.


Yes the big brakes will only accept 18 inch wheels or bigger. I asked my friends @ stoptech thats what they told me.

Let me tell you Mark. The braking quality, is astonishing compared to what I had. Also I installed a new master Cyl. I belived that contributed to a stiffer pedal.

Wow. A PV concurse didn't even know about it. I am still going to get rid of my hydro shocks in the rear and go standard setup, with a non tadem pump, and koni adjustable shocks in the rear. Might have to loose the H&R's for the 500's and go 400
When I take it Around PVE its soo loose still. l
