About 10 years ago. I had the privilege of Lee asking me to dyno the motor from the Jouster...He had freshened it up, and said he would love to see it run in something. The plan was to put it in Quik and Dirty. I got it warmed up, Blower with 2 Strombergs on it, and it started knocking. He had forgotten to tighten the flywheel...I called him, he came and picked it up, and never got around to fixing it before he shut his shop down....I tell you what, that thing sounded MEAN for a 1641...

The Tickled Pink drag bug we built in the mid 80s is doing very well in Italy.
Makes me happy to see it survived racing during the 30 years since I raced it.

Nico thank you!  Cool Cool
Paolo the new owner/driver and I have been in contact.
I will be sending him all the Tickled Pink awards to be reunited with the car once again.
Tickled Pink received 1st place car show awards at the Small Car Specialties Showdown, the VW Classic and the VW Jamboree in both 87 and 88.
It is also the only race car I have won a race and then received actual money for winning.
At a VW event in Bakersfield we won Bracket A and they paid us $400. Smiley

 Smiley Smiley Tickled Pink under construction.
Perhaps it survived because it was a very stable car at speed.
I wonder if that was in part due to the caster we built into it by pie cutting the tunnel behind the front beam to increase caster.
It was straight and safe at 100+mph.

Great pictures! I've started a thread about the car there : http://cal-look.no/lounge/index.php/topic,26402.0.html
If you have more stories/pictures to share that would be awesome Smiley
