Default Chris Wiita (the poi) cleaned house at the Socal Euro show

I just came from the Socal Euro show. Chris had his turbo 960 there and was interviewed for Street Tuner Challenge which runs on the Speed Channel. He won their "best in show" award or something like that. He got a bag of random prizes and a cool little plaque, plus a spot on national TV which is pretty cool.

Congrats Chris!

All other 240's quake in fear at the '81-'82 242GLT, they go weak at the knees & collapse due to an uncontrollable adulation that's near idolatry.

My guess would be that there's a "best horsepower" and a "best show" award.
