Eric Robbins, owner of a 1991 Black/Ivory model organized an "Install
Party" on Sunday, June 3rd, 2001. A group of local "Dallas NSX"
track junkies got together to perform all sorts of routine maintenance and other
upgrades to their cars, many in preparation for some upcoming track events.
Things kicked off at 9:30 in the morning and ran all the way until about 7:30 at
night. Eric continued on his own finishing up a Dali Racing intake installation
at about 8:30. At one point during the afternoon, there were 10 NSXs in
attendance. Needless to say, this drew some interesting looks from the neighbors
as they drove by. At the end of the day, there was even a local boy-racer who
showed up in his Cavalier to take pictures. We got a good laugh as he tried to
impress us with the roaring sound of his coffee-can exhaust as he left.
In attendance on Sunday were:
Eric Robbins John York Moazzam Ahmed Vaughn Duarte Jim Stanton Anthony
Campbell Marc Weinberg Brent Cobb Jim Kuzela Johnathan ("The New Guy")
Here are some photos from the event... maybe these will inspire some other
folks to arrange such an event where they live.
A view of 8 NSXs from the street. Three in the road, four in the driveway and
one in the garage.
A closer view of the first 8 NSXs to show up for the install party. Two more
would find their way to their siblings later in the afternoon. Notice Moazzam's
Yellow 1992 coupe with the black cockpit next to Brent's Red 190,000 mile NOS
monster. Moazzam's car started life dressed in red... it is believed to be the
only yellow '92 in existence.
Vaughn Duarte (left) and Jim Stanton (right) get under the hood. Vaughn has yet
to realize that you can't flush your brake fluid with a can of Pepsi... the ATE
Super Blue is behind him!
Yet another view of the cars. Moazzam has come to Jim's rescue on the brake
fluid vs. Pepsi question, but Vaughn is arguing the point.
Jon York installing Dali slotted and cross drilled rotors. By the end of the
day, Jon and Brent were as red from sunburn as his shirt.
Brent Cobb (center) and Marc Weinberg (right) listen on as Jim Kuzela (left)
explains why he's not getting his hands dirty with his NSX up on jackstands like
the rest of us.
Eric's NSX sits alone in the garage with the blender waiting to make more
margaritas. The empty garage bay provided a good place to relax in the shade and
shoot the breeze as everyone got to know each other a bit better.
