I just wanted to say that in the very nearly five years now I have owned this bugeye it really has never had a serious problem. I got a few little recalls for bolts and the TSB for the antilock brakes. There was an issue with a loose hose clamp or two, but I haven't replaced a single part that needed it (stage II, brake upgrades...). The transmission is fine, feels about like new with just dino gear oil. It has started every time I turned the key. The freakin' battery is original.


Take care of your car and it will take care of you.

My wagon is holding up good as well.Not a ding on it,just a couple paint chips on the nose.I did replace the battery,and had the dreaded cracked windshield.Tranny feels good even after 60 trips down the dragstrip.Now retired from dragracing,the Legendary Hammerdown wagon will still bite the unsuspecting on the street.

Now you've done it, John. HEX!!! :rotfl:


But then I know that you're far too scientific to believe in such nonsense. Well, unless you park your car on a giant conveyor belt.

Actually, I'm feeling quite peaceful today. I thinks it's because I lost my temper first thing in the morning:rotfl::rotfl:

Oh, and the brown sludge coffee is the best when you're tired! It's like rocket fuel!

I'm a fan too. You know its going to be good when they preheat the cream, knowing you are going to have to use a ton.
