    I have owned her since 1994 and was a mess when I got her home. Louise is no stranger to the strip or a late night brawl on a backroad. The engine has been an R&D project since I pulled it from a 75 New Yorker and only the block and rods are in use from the original form. I have used every trick in the book to lose e.t. on the strip and gain an advantage on the street. In short, I have had a lot of fun with Louise and she has been faithful and never has she let me down.

    Sound's like you have been around the block with the car. Your must be able to do most of the work your self. The love of horse power and the smell of burning rubber. Let's see some pic's of Louise doing here thing on the strip. :thumbsup:

    You are correct Russ! I have done all the work except paint. If I have pic's they are not digital and I do have strip action on vcr tape It's been a few years since she was a regular strip participant because she got to the point where a roll cage was required and I just didn't want to install one and mess up the car as far as I was concerned. Someone probably has backroad brawling pic's but I do not. Sorry. Louise just cruises a lot these days with my wife by my side and my wife keeps my right foot in check because she understands how violent Louise can be. Lol!!

    I like the B5 blue too... the problem for me is that it seems like 9 out of 10 RR’s are B5 blue.

    Oh come on now that can't be true. I think in the day I saw more purple and orange ones. Red was up their and the yellow. Maybe that the purple and orange just stood out more. Oh well no mater what darn color it is it is a runner. Look out chevy and ford.:kartman:How's about a six pack no not in the cooler under the hood.

    ITS MY DAMN REALITY RUSS! =D

    Maybe it’s just what I keep seeing around me. I’d love to see how many RR’s are left (by year) and what colors they all are now. Find out the most popular color and the least.

    I had the same question in my mind also. It would be good to know just how many survived the junk yard's or got crushed.

    Sound's like you can have a lot of fun driving around up their. Do you have to retime and enrich the fuel for the altitude in your area. :beep:
