So glockula is into cars these days, "as well as guns" ... back track 6 months ...
he was playing grand turismo on playstation a lot, and enjoyed building up the cars so I said, " hey, get off your butt, I got you something"
I picked up a 1988 Chrysler conquest tsi, turbo, 5 spd , rwd... nice looking car..got it cheap from a buddy who owns a body shop.
so as a father son project we tuned it up, put a ps pump on it and cleaned it all up nice. then the turbo started going out...so we upsized...I mean really up sized. and added a new " much bigger" front mount intercooler, bov, piping, intake, straight pipe, down pipe, fuel / air controller.. made glockula bust his knuckles on it. it took him 2 months to swap everything over. he did a great job on the swap "had some input from me", but he is extremely ocd about things.
so I tune the car with the new turbo.. hp jumped from about 190 to close to 300whp in a 2600lb car.. lol also we sanded / painted it up safety blue.. "glockula, yer not driving this when you turn 16.
so a friend pushed us to take it out to a drift event last sunday and I let the boy drive on the track, a bunch of spinning out and doing donuts and he had a grin ear to ear after a day of learning to drive / drift...so I had to jump into the car and show him what dad could do.. most of the drivers were younger and dident know me, but a few of the old school guys were laughing it up. surprised myself that after almost 10 years out of the scene I could still tear it up like a pro..
And glockula was way into it. it was like I was a kid again before all the prepping and training. then as I left I realized I enjoy the prepping and competitive shooting a lot more. but it was fun for old time sake.
