Good for you. I'm a 48 year old guy who's been too busy working and doing the
family thing for the last 25 or so years, and had no time to mess with cars
that time. Couple of months ago, with my tax refund check burning a hole in my
pocket, I drove by a teal '92 RS with FS signs in the windows. 5 speed,
"no hole shot" 3.08's, and the famous, feared-by-all, earth-shaking L03.
a Georgia car, no rust, polishes up OK, crazed plastic T-tops (got replacement
glass ones already at the boneyard----ahh, the forgotten joy of owning a car you
can buy cheap parts for at the junkyard!!!), and what's alleged to be a
exhaust with the cat replaced by a piece of pipe. Man, it's loud.
Poor me, I'd forgotten other joys too---I started the car in the garage two weeks
ago, she went nuts "that damn car made the whole house shake"--I laughed out
Oil spots in the driveway---the look of that Edelbrock open element
aircleaner---wrenching my back just getting in and out---my left leg sore from
clutching a real American car. Laughing out loud again when I take her for a ride
and wind that puppy with it's perfectly round cam lobes out to its power peak of
170 neutered stallions at 3800 rpm, and my perfect shift into 2nd
Keeping busy filling my head with advice and questions at "www.thirdgen.org", and
making me want to make this 305 into a little animal. So many people said "don't
waste your time---do a 350 crate motor---crate motor---like so many parrots---now
I'm getting stubborn and I want to keep the little torquer.
This, my friends, is gonna be a fun trip.
