Those are some nice passes!
Probably 12's at sea level.

Hell, if that EVO is the fastest of all of your immediate friends cars, you don't have anything to worry about until they do some more modding! Lol.

Yeah it surprised me to be honest, I was expecting to have to work for 13s.

He isn't the fastest, but he's the one I'm most interested in running. In the group that went there was a 380whp STI, a pulley tune and long tubes Terminator, and a 10-12 GT that I couldn't confirm if it was a 5.0 or not. The GT had '10 GT badges but sounded like a Coyote and ran a 13.4 so that's why it's got my wondering. The guy in the STI is the one I was trying to coach but he didn't see mich improvement there, he started the night with an 18 sec pass and only got it down to the 16s by the time we left. But that's because he babies the **** out of the car and wasn't able to get it into second for his first few passes.

Here's the Snap-on box.
It took me a little longer to dig it out than I anticipated. Lol
I'm so far behind that I'm starting to believe that I'm ahead of everything again!
I haven't had a good look at it for decades. I'm still thinking that it has to be 70 or more years old.

It's been in my family for 46 years. It was purchased from a neighbor after he passed away.
This plug on the back makes me suspect that it may be from the 30's or 40's maybe but I don't know for sure.

I've never seen a box like that before, it's sefinitely old though. I'll see if my Snap-on can put an age on it when he comes in tomorrow. Does it have a serial number or part number?

I'm pretty sure I could barely fit my top two drawers of tools into that box.

It doesn't have any serial numbers on the exterior. It's still full of tools so I can't check the bottom.
The dimensions are 32"X34"X18".

It was old when we got it. It will be interesting to see if the Snap-on guy knows anything about it.

Mile High JDF's dark side build thread

Thank God we got a new snap-on guy. Last one took 6 months to get anything wether a socket or an air gun. But again very nice tool box, glad it survived. It'd probably have to be a snap-on guy that's been with the company for a while to know about it. It'd be interesting to hear the details.

So I asked my Matco dealer because he comes in tonight and I'm really curious now. He says that it should be an early to mid 60s box and that they're actually pretty desirable to the right person. Supposedly they made a top box for it as well but he has never seen one before. I'm still gonna confirm it with my Snap-on dealer, but I figure I'd let you know what this guy said.

God that would piss me off. I have a Kershaw Leek (Snap-on edition) that Snap-On sent out for me to get a new blade and it's taken a month and a half so far and they still haven't gotten around to repairing it. Needless to say I'm quote peeved because that's my work knife.

My boss is still trying to get the same locks on his tool box. He has a key for the top and one for the bottom. He tried for two years to get the other guy to change them to one key, but never happened. New guy will have them next week. Asked him about it Friday. Only reason it will take it a little while is snap-on wanted to be difficult about it. But they're coming, it's about frigging time.

That would be entirely possible since my dad bought it around 69-70.
Hopefully, the Snap-on guy will be able to narrow it down further.

Top box huh?
Now I'll probably obsess over finding one of those!

So my snap-on dealer thinks it's a late 40s-50s box but can't place it for sure. He thinks it's in great condition based off the pictures but was wondering if it has been repainted based off the fact that you can't find a serial number.

He's got every single snap-on catalog they've made, so he said if he gets curious one of these days that he will try and look for it in one of them.

Thanks for the information JDF! I really appreciate it!

Yes, unfortunately, the box has been repainted. My dad must have done it in the last 20 years or so. I remember it being pretty scratched up when we got it. And if I remember correctly, it wasn't red. It was more of a dark, burnt orange color, I think. Lol. It was in a garage that didnt have any windows, with only the front visible, for most of the time that our family has owned it. One of these days, I'll sand it down and find the original color.
I need to empty it so I can move it. I'll take a closer look for any serial numbers.

Thanks again man!

Hey not a problem, I've enjoyed picking their brains about it. Let me know of you ever find a serial number

Not much, I've just been driving it for the most part. I just got back from a trip into the mountains to visit a buddy and was quite pleased with the gas mileage it got. It rolled 83,000 miles during that trip.

I had a guy offer to buy my truck so if it sells then I might buy an exhaust for the car.l and then hunt for another truck.

I'm hoping to get another track day in before it gets put away for the winter. Unfortunately mods won't be coming until next year I'm thinking.

32 mpg?!?
That's impressive!
That car would actually make a good daily driver.

What type of truck are thinking of getting?

To be fair, I got 29mpg on the way up the mountains and got the 32 mostly cruising downhill. It would be great if I drove a lot of highway and could stay out of the throttle, but as it is I have too much fun with it and usually average 18-19 mixed driving. Plus the whole winter thing would suck in a car like this.

I will probably end up in another ranger or an S10. A cheap 4 cyl beater car isn't out of the question though.

Still above 30 mpg average. That's respectable!

I should have said it would make a good daily driver in California. Haha

Your right though... Everything that you save on the freeway, you'll just burn up off of the stoplights.

Yeah I was quite pleased either way, I expected low 20s.

If I were in cali I don't think the top would ever go back on unless it were raining.

I can average 20 mixed if I tried being gentle to it, but thats never gonna happen.

So my buddy ran his Evo tonight, I didn't get to go but he sent me a picture of his time slip, he's in the left lane. That is a good indicator of what my car can do if I can launch it right.


Edit: scratch that, that run was the 04 STI from my last run, the Evo has run a 13.4

Haha.
I was thinking, "What!?! Was it 50 degrees that night? And 15% humidity?" Lol

Remember, the FI powered cars don't lose as much performance at a high DA, like a NA car will. As you move closer to sea level, that gap gets closer.

Exhaust got installed right when it arrived, took about an hour and that was only because I was fighting with the midpipe for a bit. I'm definitely glad that I went with the Extremes because they're still fairly quiet driving around. They are the polar opposites of my Flowmasters in the fact that they're extremely quiet at idle but wake up really well when given some gas. It's got the typical LS crackle and pop now and I've quite enjoyed being a little rowdy with it. But the best part is that there's absolutely no drone whatsoever in any gear.

My buddy got his Evo retuned after talking with the big name Evo tuner in Colorado and figuring out that his E85 tune was quote conservative. He started with 345awhp on the conservative and Tobz (the big name tuner) managed to squeeze out 372awhp and 430awtq when it was all said and done.

That being said, the standings are now:
Corvette-2
E85 Evo X-0
We are much closer now with the vette edging him out by a nose.

American muscle FTW!
If your buddy does anymore mods, you may have to get a tune. Lol

Exhaust looks good!
There will probably be a noticeable drop in gas mileage now, due to you listening to that sweet sound.
