I know how that is.....I have a terrible habit of forgetting I'm actually almost 40. A fact my wife feels the need to remind me of every time I do something foolish. "You know your almost 40 right" said with a bemused expression on her face is like the mantra around my house....or the garage, or on a snowmobile, or in anything with some semblance of horsepower.....she keeps me from getting dead or arrested regularly....

Picture this,driving the wifes (at the time) BMW,3 boys in the back seat.
The oldest boy is talking about how a buddy was learning how to do an "E" brake 180.

3 boys cheering and one more than angry better 1/2.

Hahahahahah......that's fantastic....
I had a 4eyed GT about 8yrs ago, normal bolt on's, ten minute tune up mostly but with 373's...anyways, me and my boy, he was maybe 7-8 years old, we would just tour around my little village on a Dplate, couldn't afford to plate the stupid thing....so we would just go on small tours....small burnouts, nothing to bad....and he knew not to tell mom if dad was being "silly".....outside our town arena, showing off for a buddy, giant humungous 2nd gear burnout, t-top open, the damn wind caught us and absoluly sent all the smoke back into the car....it was sooo bad. Got home, he went inside, 2 seconds later she comes screaming out the Backdoor bellowing about how my kid reeks like burning rubber and there is black "dust" in his hair........I nearly fell over laughing......ahhhhh.....I miss that car....

Ah they wernt all bad, I had a d16z6 in a coupe and it was a blast to drive, 7000rpm everywhere and your foot on the floor always.....can't do that in a "real"car without getting arrested or dead lol......see if you can track down a parts list on yours, and pull a valve cover, grab the head casting number if you get a chance.....be kinda fun to see what you actually have there. It def looks pretty tho.
