Without a doubt it was the day I brought my 914 out to Streets of Willow the morning after the guys at OTTOS had worked late finishing up the -6 conversion. It had literally gotten buttoned up around 8:30pm and was at the track 6:30am the next day.

The car was running crappily all the way out there (no trailer yet at that time). Not ever having driven a -6 or knowing what to expect from the donor engine (which the shop had not worked on - off the pallete into the car), I initially just thought "OK, a bit underwhelming but I guess this is how it's gonna be".

Well, lo and behold I chased down a crossed plug wire later that morning and had an ear-to-ear grin the first time I hammered it around the desert roads surrounding Willow. The first experience of the small-six right behind my head zinging up to 7K was glorious...and still is.
