Don't know of any Silver turbo SE's. Stazi has a silver turbo SVT, with 19" wheels. Pretty recognizable car, especially with his new front mount I/C.

Canadianballer PM'd me. There was a misunderstanding. All is well, and no hard feelings. So Canadianballer, welcome to the site, thanks for the apologies, and have a good time.

Haha, we might still be thinking of different people. Stazi is married, and has a deep Australian accent. Has an Austrlian license plate on the front of the car as well. I wasn't aware of him having a brother close by. Could be him though.

But Big Jim, are you doing much performance driving? Aren't you still on the stock clutch? I suppose if you drive under 3k rpm's, you could get away with it, but I don't like being BELOW 3K rpm's.

My post was a little over the top, but I like to be a little different in how I tell people to SEARCH! And yeah, a sense of humor couldn't hurt some of you.

Obviously you have never been on a ride with me driving. I had an 80 mile round trip commute today. I was over 6500 RPM about a dozen times.

Do you remember the Tom Kruse movie about NASCAR racing? Do you remember how he was tearing up equipment, especially tires, until the crew chief helped him to be a finise driver? He could still win races without tearing things up once he understood the equipment. That's the way I drive. That kind of comes with the territory when you spend a large share of your adult life repairing cars.
