I didn't have a car , all I had was a honda 350 full ridgid hardtail frame with springer frontend chopper.
now before you say : HONDA 350 CHOPPER??? You have to remember that a 450 was the largest honda made at the time....oh yeah , like others on here , I had a whole lot more hair too..(me on back)
I can't figure out how to turn the pic right so tilt your head..

Did you have an IROC and a mullet? :lol:


I graduated in 1992...I never had an IROC but hate to admit I did have a small mullet. ops:
The 1987 IROC... I lusted that car that year; I was a junior.

I had a 72 Chevelle in primer at the time... had a tunnel ram w/ 2 600 Holleys (it was over carbed & belched black smoke when I got on it) 308 gears in a 10 bolt, 350 (stock) w/ shift kit. The cam was a little too big for the stock torque converter & I occasionally had to put in in neutral so it would not die... what a great time though... I was 17 & I built most of it w/ the help of some friends. No mullet- I had short hair most of the time... but I did sport an AC/DC shirt or two. Back then 72 chevelles were not as cool as they are now... I always wanted a 67. Now I would be fine w/ either one.

When video games and vcr movies started along with the bullschit emision testing kids stopped working on cars. back in the 80's when they started testing here I use to have to back the timing out and lean the crap out of the idle screws to get my hopped up junk to pass, drive around the corner and put everything back.
