Fire up - cold start of a Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxer
Firing up my 1976 Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxer after two months having
stood in the garage... Note the flame after the backfire!
The procedure for a cold engine is as follows:
Twist the ingnition key to the first position. You will hear the clicking
of the fuel pumps as they start delivering fuel to the carburetors. After
approximately 15 to 20 seconds, pump the accellerator pedal to the floor
four or five times, squirting lots of fuel into the intakes. Then, while
holding the accellerator pedal about a third of the way down, twist the
ignition key to the start position. You will hear a deep, exiting,
expolding bark as the engine comes to life, accompanied by significant
quantities of smoke out of the Exhaust
tips, as the oil that hs been resting in the cylinders is burnt. If the
ambient temperture is cold and the car has not been driven for a while, the
engine may die, necessitating a repeat of the above-described prodecure.
Once started, the rpms should be kept at 2,000 until the smoke clears,
usually in about two to three minutes.
Out on the open road, at low to mid-throttle, the moaning and slurping
sound of the Webers is the dominant sensation. When the throttle is opened
wide, the result is a massive roar and a seamless delivery of power. The
smooth power delivery is deceptive as a glance at the speedometer usually
reveals speeds greater than expected. The sound of the engine when extended
is exciting and is similar to the sounds emanating from Jody Scheckter's
and Gilles Villeneuve's Formula One flat-12s!
Cars I See - A 28 Year Hunt
This is a story of one man's 28 year journey to own a Porsche 930. Jim
Goodlett's 1984 grey market 930 turbo is
a beautiful example of a classic Porsche 911, but it also represents the
accomplishment of a goal he set for himself as a young man who could only
dream of one day owning this supercar.
Many thanks to Jim Goodlett for sharing his time and his story.

FASTEST STREET CAR IN AMERICA - Tom Bailey's 217 MPH '69 Camaro!
1000 miles, 4 tracks, 5 days, and 5 six second passes, if that doesn't
prove that this is the fastest street car in America (possibly the world),
I don't know what does! Tom Bailey and Steve Morris not only won Drag Week
2013, but they are also the first to run 5 consecutive six second passes at

1991 Porsche 964 Turbo Drive Off
The Porsche 964 is the company's internal name for the version of the
Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. It featured
significant mechanical and styling revisions over previous versions of the
911, most prominently the more integrated bumpers, although it was still
obviously a 911.
The 3.3 liter engine of the turbo model
was carried over from the previous generation 930, however the 964 turbo benefited from coil-over suspension,
anti-lock brakes, power steering and improved HVAC. Thirty-six hundred and
sixty 964 turbos were produced.
