    Yesterday I went went with some friends to the Hemming's Spring Musclepalooza 2019 at Lebanon Valley Dragstrip. There was easily over a 250 cars in attendance, everything from 50's chevys all the way through modern muscle cars. Only 1 SVO:

    That's kind of the reason we want to get our 86 in the Houston Autorama. With all the cars in the event, we'd pretty much be guaranteed to be the only SVO. Good job, sir!

    Way to carry the SVO flag Joe! Did you get a chance to run the strip or was it just a show?

    Ted, the drag strip was open / available, but I've never done it (always done the twisties for me). So no.

    Drag racing is alot harder than it looks from my limited experience. Especially with our cars!

    Installed a new clutch cable tonight.

    A new clutch was last summer's project.

    Happy to report that it's soooooo much smoother clutch engagement with the new cable.

    Another project that's been on my to do list, the aftermarket boost gauge has been "off" for a while now:

    Took the time to remove it from the car tonight. It's in my A-pillar gauge pod, which requires removing the dash pad....

    Anyway, I read on line that you can fix / adjust the gauge from the rear through the hole where the back light bulb inserts.
    After a few trials and errors, I now have:


    I'll get it installed back in the car this weekend and see how it works over the long run.
    Worst case is that I buy a new gauge, but I figured this was worth a try.

    Boost gauge went back in, so far so good.
    Also took the SVO for state safety inspection today, passed.
    So I'm good for another 12 months.....

    Cool. Also congratulations on the single most longest running thread in the history of the SVOCA.

    I went to a car show a few weeks back, ended up parked next to another '80's turbo icon:


    I also stopped on the way home for another quick pic:

    Looking good Joe! GN's are almost a rarer sight than are SVO's on the road these days, let alone a T-Type.

    @JTurbo
    Where did you get the chin spoiler on the front? My 1986 doesn't look like that so I'm asking. Your towing stories have prompted this project.
