That doesn't look quite right, tq is going up and HP down@~4600.
The other way doesn't correlate either.
The "bumps" don't correlate//jibe.
Tire slippage?

I was thinking that there might be some residual back pressure involved from 4600 on -- --


just taking this to far now LOL

Damn, those were the days. ^^^^^^^^^ We had a guy (E2) from Colorado in the quartermasters division who somehow got an entire pallet, maybe a hundred , cases of Coors shipped to our unit at Vihn Long. He also managed to get many cases of steaks from the Navy guys we flew cover for. There was enough for a steak and a couple of beers for just about everyone on base I think.That was during my first tour, so would have been 1968.

It's Story telling day and it's Baseball season (here in the states) and the final year of Vin Skully's 67 year career announcing Baseball -- -- Here are a few of the stories he interweaves into his broadcasts that makes him so great.......

Well, The Ghia is back home -- -- It has been gone so much the past year that there almost wasn't a space for it in the garage..... you know how a empty spot in the garage fills up quick LOL

tried to post a picture here

I brought the damn thing home Sunday, with more problems than it left with, oil leaks up the arse and just a ton of electrical issues. It runs OK. It drives on and off the trailer and goes down the road, then it just shuts off -- -- guess I'm just gonna reach in there and grab a handful of wiring and just rip it out and start over.... Ordered some new electrical things and they will be here tomorrow night, so tomorrow I'll get started straightening out my rats nest and decide how I want to proceed.....

On the way home, I was cruising a car show at the Riverside Auto Center with the Ghia on the trailer, and there was Ester (E-girl)((Powder puff VW racer par excellence)). I didn't know she was Ms. Route 66.... Damn she looked good in that tiara... LOL
