...and wait until the shop employee walks across the screen to talk to Merv....BAM!

Too bad we could not see Max's (and Pete's) face when this happened....

Max..."WTF?!"

Pete.."Oh-oh....I need to rebuild an engine."

Merv..."Anyone go a spare pair of underwear I can borrow?"

Funny!!!! Had a great time, and that was a memorable backfire. Woke me up for sure!!

Had a late model stock race car on the dyno today, and it backfired too, and I told the crew chief that his car didn't have anything on this MG from early in the week.

Hope everyone had a good time and got home safe and sound!

I have a friend that every time he had the distributor out of his 302 it would backfire and I would have to take it and put in back in right. He would always have it a notch off. I showed so many tines how to do it right, I think he just wanted me to come over and help him. All he had to do is ask !
