I slid on packing peanuts while going 174.5 MPH backwards which caused the car to spin out of control, flip end over end 70 times and then I hit a deer. The car would've been drivable but the wheel studs broke off and I nearly died. :sad: I got the car towed home, wiped the dirt off my hands and got a lift to work to carry on my business.

Meh, any idiot can roll 70 times. Throw in a backflip or two and I'll be impressed.

In all candor... I haven't been updating this. It is getting to be a PITA to upload photos to photobucket becauae their mobile app sucks, and the Facebook app works pretty nicely so I've been posting there mostly. :sad: not a ton has chaned with this car, but if all goes well big changes are coming in the next month or so...

Oh, and I bought another SRT-4 last weekend...

Well, for the benefit of old farts like me who don't do FB, I hope that you will do the old-fashioned thing of posting pics here so that I can enjoy seeing the new wheels. :D

I can get a few up, but oh don't worry it's not much to look at. It was a front end collision I bought from a friend to part out. Originally wanted it because he bought it being told it was Mopar Stage 3. It's not... oh well, price was right.

Not a S3 after all? You're taking that better than I would. :banghead:

If you knew the price, you'd be okay :lol:

He also had someone buy the drivetrain before he even picked it up. Takes a little time, but it's definitely a profitable vehicle :)

No new updates, but I recently saw my car at my sister's house where it has been sitting since I brought it home from Carlisle. I never posted pics in here but I got a few pieces powder coated Hemi Orange this past summer before Carlisle including my Mopar Stage 3 turbo.

I got the Stage 3 kit installed and buttoned up the night before I left for Carlisle. On the drive out I found out I had 0 boost and the car sounded like it was supercharged so I either have a massive boost leak or I put the turbo back together wrong after having the housing powder coated and blew it up. Either way, I need to get that resolved before Carlisle this year hopefully... Plenty of other projects have higher priority though.
