Well, Turtle was signed in but no response from the peanut gallery?



We continue to wait I guess.

Something smells fishy here. Verrrry fishy. It bothered me that he has never shown pictures of his car before, and that confused me a little. Usually if someone has spent that much time and money they want to share it. I figured the guy was just a little wierd or something. I have a digital camera and I have never posted pictures of my car on this site, and I consider myself to be pretty computer savvy. I know at least two people who would probably let me borrow their camera to take pictures, but my car is nothing special and I dont really see the need to.

Before, I took Turtle for what he showed, because the admins backed him up on this. After seeing this new evidence, I am about 75% against him 25% with him on the issue. Personally I think we should just drop it entirly and forget about it. If we are being played then by making all of this controversy we are just giving him what he wants.

Will or Hector, do you still have Turtles' phone #? Have you contacted him to get his *** in here to explain himself? If you have, I really doubt he is for real, otherwise he would have been in here to defend his honor and integrity.

I'll yiield the podium now, sorry if if got a little lengthy on you guys.

Has anyone personally met the guy before? Im starting to wonder if his intentions were to feel like he was important to this club because he has no friends or anyone..? Yea I know kinda corny but I think the last thing we want is him to go into depression or hurt himself because we have busted his bubble. Does JimW live close to him?

PontiacDad/PontiacMom and 2000SilverBullet live the closest. Turtle has a fantastic wife and daughter. I've spoken with his wife on several occasions. He'* just a car-loving (obsessed) gear-freak like alot of other members here.

Turtle is probably 47 years old now? 46 some time last year.

PontiacDad was supposed to meet him for coffee on his last trip south but never mentioned it so I assume they never hooked up.

I live on the coast so am quite a distance away from him.
Maybe we could entice him to venture down to Albany for the July meet and really prove his stuff. :P

Here'* something that caught my attention today.

It'* a 92 N/A, which supposedly means there'* a Jet Stage II. It'* a full OBD 1 computer.

With a 95 L36, you couldn't use the engine wiring harness at all. Let alone an l36 with full turbo setup, BOV etc. Last time I checked jet didn't make a chip for 95 at all, let alone a turbo one.

I already saw your post on this at CGP. His car has supposedly gone through alot of changes. He supposedly has connections for custom burns, and may only have started with a Jet Stage II. We may never know. Beating this to death any longer or picking it apart any further is pointless Jason. On this forum AND ClubGP. The Dyno sheets aren't his. We know that.

Until we find more FACTS, there isn't any point to continuing this.
