    If you don't practice...you'll sound like it. And, if you don't tune, your life will sound like it, too. Listen to the intervals. That's where it all hides from you.....

    One problem, it's WHITE what were they thinking!

    Everyone knows you have to have a black 70's Trans Am.

    1/2 mpg , make sure to ask for enough to cover the fuel and extra carbon tax the snowflakes will throw at you.

    Anyone else notice the crazy camber angle?

    But then @11:40+ he talks of the spindles and inclination angle..... and no crazy caster angel...... sounds like he has a clue how to set-up a car to handle. And after all - that camber angle is for taking fast hard corners while holding the road.

    And for what it's worth: of all the cars I've owned - a '73 Firebird Formula 400 was one of my all time favs.

    He could let me test-drive it. Then you'd have your answer.

    I actually think he ruined a fine classic car. Yet I still admire his fore-site, ambition, skills and knowledge.

    One immediate thought comes to mind: way overbuilt. While I admire this for being a rolling testbed for his skills, as a vehicle to drive and service, it's so far over the top as to be meaningless. The K.I.S.S. principle was never a thought here. But I appreciate his effort, it's a damn cool car.
