Stock '86 5kcstq Pops Doug's Overboost Cherry

Well, it happened to me today, for the first time... maybe...

My MC engine remains unmodified at this time. I can't even
recall exactly where I was today, but I was in some traffic
situation I needed to get out of, and I goosed it in first gear,
and wound it out up to about the redline (most of my attention
was on traffic). Bang. Fuel-pump cut-off.

Talk about hitting a brick wall! Sh*t, I don't want to feel that
ever happen again!

Actually, I'm doubting it was overboost... but I didn't think
this car had a rev limiter. Anybody know what happened?

As I write this, I'm realizing that Tom Nas, Phil Payne, Ian,
and many others, are probably much more buzzed than am I,
and maybe even starting to wind it down for the first nap of the

Happy New Year!
