Im running NT05s they seem to have a nice balance between the street, strip and autox. They are kind of a jack of all trades type tire when you live in TX

No worries bruddah. For what you paid for the car you'll definitely come out way ahead.

<p>Did you say you wanted something off of it, or was that a different one we were looking at? Also, the link is down so I don't have any pictures of it anymore :(</p>

We can find it again, no biggie.

It was a different one, I was looking at the front bumper off the rear-ended '01 auto we were looking at (the $1000 ibuyfast car).

It sold through ibuyfast for $1000. Good price, but not awesome price. No hardtop, and like 140k miles and automatic. So trans and diff are pretty worthless, but the VVT motor was virtually guaranteed good.

White Castle is gross. When I was in Tennessee a couple years ago I was told I "had to" drive halfway across the state (the long way) to visit one because it was amazeballs and I wouldn't regret it. I think I regretted it for the entire remainder of the trip and the 3 plane flights back to the west coast.

I come from the land of In N Out and Five Guys, you are going to have to work harder to impress me.

(I better watch out or this is going to become a regional burger argument again)

Call Mazda? Maybe m.net has a secret vin decoder ring hiding somewhere.

vin decoder

I've never used this, but I've always been curious. See what it gives you.
