Full frontal Sam (with a shocking surprise) coming up first thing in the morning. I-club was acting up earlier, so I went home and put our daily log on hold until tomorrow.

So, concerning Kevin's g/f's new Smart car. Is Keven going to figure out how to mount up a vf39 or vf43 turbo?
If not, what about a Hayabusa engine swap. Or maybe Auto Hq should be the first shop in the bay area to mod Smart car's. Do you know what kind of a following you guys would get?
Here are some videos:

I see Kevin buying a Smart car in the future!

We'll see what his gf lets us do.

I believe there is another local shop getting into Smart cars as we speak also, but I don't remember their names. Kevin told me about them.

I know about the Busa-engine Smart cars already...pretty awesome if you ask me.

We'll see what happens. A Smart car has a little engine, and would need a little turbo, something like TD04 might even be too big. But we have sold a few recently to a local motorcycle shop who has been using them with great success, so maybe TD04 is the way to go.

Yesterday at AutoHQ:

Sam made his sponsorship votes very obvious, such as wearing darkonion's t-shirt.

Having finally stripped the STI, we put it in the parking lot for our friendly neighborhood scrap metal guys to come pick it up. But first Sam had to claim his crown as king of the STI/hill.

Then we actually did some work: more WRX diagnosis after bad dealership repairs.

Next, clutch, flywheel, and front axle on 98 Forester.

Hope you enjoy the pictures of Sam, frontal views this time.

Brandon
