181 mph with a Maserati Ghibli

158 mph with a Grand Cherokee 5.9 supercharged, that wasn't top speed but full of fear

All in Germany
Back in 2000 I spend a couple of weeks in and around Munich, Germany.  From what I remember the autobahn was in good shape and people paid more attention to the rules of the road as well as what lane they were in.  For instance, slow people were in the slow lane and fast people were in the fast lane.  In the states slow people are in the fast lane playing with their cell phones and people wanting to get somewhere are weaving in-an- out trying to get around the slow people in the fast lane which is a recipe for disaster.  I'd much rather drive in Germany.  lol

My top speed was 155mph in my 87 modified 350 GTA TransAm.  I had a 84 Buick Regal "with a 1972 350 Olds Rocket motor" that was way faster than my TransAm but the chrome on the body would fly off when hitting about 130mph.  I wish I wouldn't have sold either of those cars.

what ever became of this? humpty Dumpty back together again?

I've healed well, sorry I missed your post somehow Don.  I still have issues sleeping or laying down on that side due to the bone fragments floating around, but the fragments havent moved so I will just learn to live with it.  I only notice it about once a week now.

181 is gonna be hard to beat lol. Your 158 in a JGC beats me also, that had to be scary.

I use to weld at caterpillar many years ago but that was only 440volt industrial Mig welders, takes some skill but not a whole lot with that much power.  Taking a night class is a good idea, I may do that.

Love the TIG but it does take some practice.  Biggest initial problem was not holding the tungsten tip close enough to the metal and touching the tungsten to the metal while welding.  At my age my eyes aren't as good as they used to be so I wear reading glasses now while welding.  Major improvement when you can see what you are doing.  lol  It seems more expensive with consumables but I haven't really kept track of it.  You can control TIG better and it doesn't leave spatter to clean up but the metal has to be cleaner to begin with as well.  Each type of welding has its place though.  Taking a night class would surely help the beginner.

Great work.

How do you like the TIG welding? Was it a hard learning curve? Are the supplies expensive?

Made a stand for the corner notcher with casters for easy maneuvering around the shop.  I TIG welded the outside for appearance and MIG welded the inside for speed.  Just have to make the two shelves and it is good to go.

finally had a chance to get to those new ball joints on the '96 4X4 Dakota yesterday,  (my other one, a 92 is 2wd) both lowers and driver side upper had play, though I have seen worse before on others. (helps that I was a front end alignment guy for so many years)  the tire that I just put to the LF already starting to wear choppy since my last post, this tire had com off the RR and appeared perfectly flat at time of last post.... just started to notice it starting to roar the last couple days.... but as you can see, it don't take long at all for worn front end parts to start eating tires... which cost too much these days to ignore....  good thing for open -window weather as the howling tires is even more noticeable with them open.....   hopefully caught them in time to have tread straighten itself out.  Both lowers had about equal slop in them, mostly up n down, LF upper had side to side play that I could feel just pushing on the rotor and spindle while jacked up and a stand under the lower arm. not much leverage there without the tire on, so that means that upper was pretty toast... somehow I didn't feel it with the floor jack under that wheel a couple weeks ago... and yeah I checked.
