I spent plenty of time in a stock bugeye on mountain roads, Crash, and let
me tell you it was not "fun" having the big guys crawling up your tailpipe
cause that little 948 just wasn't going to go any faster up that hill,
particularly with the smooth transmission. That didn't happen after we got
and I will be forever grateful. That is a kind of "fun" I don't need.
