Re: The substance we laughingly call "gasoline"

They are rebuilding the Gate station right around the corner from my house. Razed it down to the dirt, new tanks and everything. I just heard today that they are going to have an ethanol free tank. Hopefully it will be Cobra food 93 octane.

Re: Ceramic coating

Mike,

That looks great. Love the Webers and the crazy pipes. The ceramic looks nice.

Just something for thought. The crossover fuel line seems awefully close to the headers. You could get some really hot fuel on one bank. God forbid if there was a leak, which fuel pressure gauges are infamous for.

Silver w/ blue stripes wrecked

After leaving the Jax Beach cruise in last Tuesday, my friend saw a Silver with blue stripe Cobra that had been wrecked being put on a flatbed on Beach Blvd. I don't want it to be anyone, but especially not one of us. Anyone here?
