Going Places - Doing things


Malibu Canyon Adventure


 Turkey Week 

Red Rock Canyon


 A Grand Day Out

It was the beginning of summer, Time for a picnic and a drive!


While most of the country was covered by ice and snow, we had a Sunny day in the 80's. Then came:

Picnic 2

(the sequel)

A Banner Day! Drop everything and go for a drive

Saddleback Peak



Pictures will show up here of the interesting places it goes.

(I will spare you of the pics of me at the grocery store, corner market, dentist, etc)

I have been driving the wheels off it! Just gotta develop the film...

If you would like better quality pics, I can send.

Coming Soon!

 The Plans and Instructions!

The complete 40 page assembly manual. Who wants to see this? What form is best? It could be done all by jpg images, or if I really get inspired it could be done as a PDF file.

What the hell, I'll probably just do both.


If you think you have an Imp, does it have a Serial Number Plate like this?

It actually measures 2 in x 3.5 in and is located below the rear seat, in the center, right above the transmission hump.

For more info, and a look at other terrific EMPI Imp's, go see Deb and Paul's Imp pages!
