Default Discovery Channel at car show yesterday: Took my Turbo & my Racer :)

Discovery Channel showed up to film at the now-massive Cars & Coffee event here in Austin by my house, so I snuck the '82 racer over there and my 86.5T 928's, had a great showing, my mouth ran non-stop. Whew!

BTW: 2604 was the official weight of my race car, wet (2800 with me in it): nice!!! I figure I can shave another 15lbs of wiring and another 20lbs of under-coating once I get to that point, though the turbo & intercooler will add some weight.

Need to go 3pc wheels (again) to get my correct offsets...I made some SS shields to protect my 4" brake ducting to protect it when I turn too tight
