Spalt takes the Fairmont Challenge....5.3 Turbo LSx Fairmont Ride Along
Took my friend Mike Spalt out for a ride today. Mike has been in most of my
cars, way back to the wagon when I first got it in 2000. I think he had a
good time here. I decided to leave the mic under the hood and capture the
engine sound, I think the facial expressions speak for themselves. This is
about 14.8 psi on WG spring. Spun quite a bit today, must still have too
much air in the Mickeys.

Badass Diesel Turbo RAT ROD Pickup
It's not fast, it's not pretty, but it's FUN AS HELL... Rollin coal down
the highway towing his camper trailer, it's quite the sight to see! Take a
tour of Troy Gubser's turbo Diesel rat
rod pickup! This thing sure has character, and it's a blast to roll around
