Get a box cutter and cut out the carpet under the gas peddle.
Then remove the insulation and you have an extra one-inch.
This way you put the peddle to the metal rather than putting the peddle to the rug.
BTW…It’s a joke.
I welcome any other stupid ideas.
I already removed my extra kidney; ovary, gal bladder and interior leaving only a milk crate to sit on. I’m on a crash diet to drop to anorexia so I would be 98 pounds…Zooooom.
Don’t make me laugh or I’ll pop a stitch.
LOL Yeah you are crazy! I needed a laugh considering I just put my z in the shop cause I either have a stuck valve/bent/broke or something like that. Im looking at 700 bucks and hoping it didnt do anything to the piston or damage the head..........praying......praying. thanks for the laugh mad mad mad madeline. Laterzzzzz Mark
I got one for ya - we had this buddy a few years back that knew absolutely nothing about cars. He scraped his pennies and bought an old chevelle. He wanted to dress up the engine a bit so he started with chrome valve covers. He brings the car over, we throw them on real quick and jokingly tell him that'll add a good 10-15 horsepower. He thought we were serious and asked why... we told him simply "chrome adds horsepower". He shows up the next day with chrome heat tape stuck to everything he could get it to stick to... begging to race my buddies blazer with the corvette engine in it. It's been 10 years, and it's still the ongoing joke around here anytime someone ends up with a chrome breather or something.
Thought someone might get a little chuckle...
But being as it's Christmas and all! Put high performance air in your tires. Also, I doubt they are available in the States but years ago when we switched to the metric system you could get stickers for your speedometer. What you do though is just cut up the individual numbers and start adding them on to your speedo after the 120mph. 130, 140, 150 etc. It's hard to find the stickers these days.
if you have a freind who knows nothing abut cars...send them to the auto parts store for a new flux capacit(you know...back to the future)...this gets them all the time..i sent my freind to pep boys a few years back...he asked the guy at the counter for a flux capacitor for a 1985 mustang....and the guy at the counter actually looked through the computer for a listing...boy he was pissed when he came back to my house!..lol
1. Gut interior completely.
2. Remove paint
3. Install a remote control (no driver will save 100-200 pounds)
4. Weld doors and hatches shut
5. Pump car full of helium (if you're going to lighten it, let's get serious)
6. Go really, really fast.
1. Revlon Hairdryer - Adds an estimated 15-20 hp depending on how you configure it. Twin dryers have yielded wonderful results.
2. Z-specific stickers - Sure we don't have the advantages of today's technology in our old Zcars, but I wanted to combat this with my new line of stickers. Since Ford already stole Z-tech, I just use the "Powered By Z" / "Type Z" on my car. Here could be a few other stickers that might intimidate drivers:
i used to get my friends to go to autozone to pick me up a lower radiator hose for my 74 beetle. never came back with one though. one time i let my mom drove the bug and told her to stop by a full-service and get them to check the oil, and the water in the radiator,,,,she never borrowed it again.
My friend who knew nothing about cars thought this. I said yea... a V8 and he was like... doesn't V8 stand for 8 volts on a car?? I almost died laughing! luckely there was no one else around for him to be embarrased ....i still rag on him about it to this day.
