      After Jason. I had it for a year or so and raced locally. Did one Cendiv event with it in Peru. Jason had some funky stuff going on with it like running 104 Octane and no O2 sensor. Also was not using the computer so I hooked all that back up and it ran like a champ. He could have done so much better. I've been out of the autox scene since. I just bought a 91 2.0 16v though...*maybe* I'll get back into it.

      I can't remember the guys name to be honest, but I sold it in 2003 I think.

      Yes, I, MusicCityGTI, am the current owner.
      Car was previously owned by Raleigh Borrean, Jason Tipple, Allen Banks and now me. There may have been others along the way but those are the only that I am aware of at this point.

      And yes the car is no longer eligible for FSP and I still cant drive worth poooo.

      After R-comps


      due to me being stupid and not storing my magnetics properly they got ruined over the winter.

      For some reason, I just find this shot hillarious. It almost looks... "Cartooney". Almost as if it's going to start picking up it's wheels and jog around the track.

      Is that Kiesel's ferrari? I heard it was lost in the fires

      Yes and unfortunately, yes. (That pic was from 04 I believe.)

      He's running in his son's 3 rotor powered Sprite for now.

      Too bad many of the older SDR members are really out to get Keisel on sound!

      You should hear some of the things that are said when about him when I'm working trailer.

      Frankly I do not know why they are out to get him. We met and ran against him at Topeka for the Pro and the National. Jeff, his wife and his dad are pleasant and friendly people and that was while he was under the gun. His frame on the sprite had cracked and he was busy welding his car back together and he was still friendly. We felt bad for him and even went to get him a pair of heavy gloves so he would not burn himself welding. The only negative thing I can say about him is he beat us.

      People can be strange and you never know what will cause them to be jealous or dislike you.
