Dag, What ever happened to the greatest fastback ever built?

WhooHoo!!!

Sometimes you gotta put down the crack pipe for a while and get some Jesus...

Glad to have you back in the alley with us street rats again.

I always put pictures up on TOS and link to them here.
If you are putting up some relevant/important/original stuff it has to be better than some of the garbage people post there...

I have an 86b in a 1914 Type 1, and with decent heads, exhaust, etc. It really is an 'all around' cam. Nice even idle, not too harsh on the drivetrain.
Not as wild as the specs would make you think...

Welcome back.
Yours is my favorite car EVER!
Can't wait to see some pics.

Hello!!
I just have to show you what happend this fall, we Went out on the countryside to dig out the old fasty!
It´s been sitting here since spring 2007, well...just start digging:)

And we got it out and up on the trailer, a little bit dusty after nine years of storage;)

We got it home to my garage and pulled the old temporary "Show to the car inspector Engine"

Any updates?

Are you changing cam grind or turbo trim or are you leaving these all the same?
