Very interseting. I just picked up an 'Underpants Blue' '84 244 DL w/ B23 flat top pistons, going to keep it N/A and high compression, should I call it N/A Underpants?
I suppose the term applies both to Scotia Blue (139) and Mid Blue (213) - they're rather similar. My 244 is the latter, and I've heard the term before from Swedish folks.

You can also swap "money" for "girlfriend" and usually you have to combine both!

I've admired your videos on youtube, which inspired me to build my own 240 Turbo.

Keep it up :D

It was day before the Tampere Car show when I call to Bamse. Bamse walking cross the streeet and is still quite calm. Bamse has just droven the first test drive and there was some minority problems (wheels almost drop off). Car was at pieces and he had 4 hours to fix it and drive 100 miles.

Bamse and his friend's fixed the car and the car was at the stand 45 minutes before the show started.

Amazing flefibility for the boys.

I love your videos. They're like how Turbobricks would be after some dramatization. Except that seems to be real for you.
