Yes, indeed it rang some bells. Bowling Green 1998 picture.
Awesome!!! I was wondering if anyone still had a copy of that picture!

I'm not sure which of us is more odd to see so young: me, or the PGT...

I have too many cars.

We could do a meet at your house again.
I'm up for a meet, just not at my place!

Give me about 18 months advanced notice to get my car back together. It's little more than a unibody in my garage at present...

Glad I could hook you up with that old picture. Been doing a lot of digging around for info lately for vacuum hoses, so lately I've also stumbled across pictures I hadn't seen in ages.

None of the three - liked the Magnaflow I had on PGT #1. At least it didn't sound like someone blowing through a toilet paper or paper towel tube.

Agreed. Best sound on the KL. I had the Hotshot Performance-made Magnaflow catback designed for RR Racing with the intention to go into mass production that never finalized.

Still rocking the Borla. Sounds great. Finally did all of the vacuum hoses with silicone and got the old dog back on the road again. Runs a LOT better now, and only one CEL left to figure out instead of three or four.

I did a 2nd gear pull for the first Time in ages, we're talking something like 11+ years and 50k+ miles ago. Seriously I hadn't floored it in that long. And my first reaction was, uh, that's it? Huh... Either the car is way out of tune or I'm too used to actually getting acceleration when I floor the Evo. How easily we get spoiled once we get a taste of real power.

Have the same 95 PGT here in trying to revive as well. Had a bad paint job and master cylinder along with the booster took a dive. This car is going to take a bit of elbow grease this winter for sure. Also in search of a PGT in good condition. Think I'll always have one around.

I think that it's more of the second. I commute to work exclusively by motorcycle, so on the few occasions that I drive a car they all seem slow. OK, so the Celica actually is slow, but the Galant VR4 isn't, and I get the same, "huh, is that it?" reaction. Still, love my cars, and some things are too big to carry on the bikes.
