I think he figured since he was wide open, nobody would be overtaking him. It happens, and in an open air roadster it is easy to tell as their exhaust note sounds like a vacuum cleaner run amok as it downshifts 2 gears. Most the time when I hear them wide open, they stay in the passing lane and I glide by on the right.

deckofficer Randy, that Willy sounds like it could wake the dead. You got at least 40 db on me, but torque motors due to cam and valve timing are always muted and quiet. This is a typical scenario on our 2 lane mountain roads, 50 mph till a passing lane then everyone speeds up and nobody can pass on the steep grades and 8% grades.

NEW INTERIORS My friend speedydeedy came by one day and I gave him a little ride..

I got it up to around 45 and told him Hang on !!!!!
He said it felt like we took off from a dead stop at 45mph.. It fried them 18.50's..

It wasn't Mild.. Here's a couple video's of us playing a little.. Couldn't do to much because we was at someone's house.. The video's didn't sound to good.. Cheap video recorder..

NEW INTERIORS This is a shot of my last bike..



I really didn't have one car that didn't stick me in the seat hard.. They all had good get up and go.. But if I had to pick one over all.. I would say the 41 willys.. That 468 and 456 gears would nail you.. Even at 45 mph..
That thing was SCARY !!!!!

See Randy, we have common denominators, just not EVs. Of all the rides I've had over the years, the Track-T has had the best power to weight numbers. With the engine going in next month, I'll be at 3.4 lb per hp. The 355 had me at 4.6 lb per hp. But since I'll be 60 next month I think 3.4 is it, no more for this old geezer.

Becareful.. These little cars are a lot like a motorcycle.. Sometimes they will bit back..
Haven't done the crotch rocket thing for 25 years. Remember when Suzuki came out with the lightened 1100E at 505 lbs ? I bought one the first year they came out. Fun bike for it's day.

Two up on hwy 49 at some speed over 100.



I admit, I'm a life long gearhead.

Since the EFI 427 has 140 hp more than the 355 that turned a 10.8, and the car weighs 1790 lbs where an additional 140 hp will make a big difference, I believe I'm on track (no pun intended) for my idea of the "Swiss Army Knife" of hot rods.

That is all I want, 25 mpg, 1.02G cornering, good street manners, and mid 9's. Then I will finally be done.
