    I started to run out of places to remove weight from the car so I got serious about driver weight reduction. I never watched the scale when I started but was north of 310# I guess. Iím still a fat ass but under 245# now. Iíve watched the scale more this year and am down 40# from January

    That’s good stuff Bob. Definitely happy for you. You’re a big guy but your heart will be a lot happier at 245 than 310. Looking forward to the next PB!

    What an awesome pass and a great sounding tiny avenger. Love the SVO emblem on the dash.

    This car has a long history ... it is an Original RS Turbo car, but early in its life someone put everything from a SVO under it... full suspension, k member, everything. They apparently put the dash emblem on then. About the only things left SVO on the car now are the rear brakes and that dash emblem.
