Default Bobo's NB daily build

Ok guys and gals,
My name is Derrick. Been in the car thing for way to long. Im 24 from east tn. Ive had alot of different cars from Euros,dsm's,lots of hondas,and more currently subarus. I have had one miata if anyone remembers me from like 2 years ago. It was a 94 M edition that i had picked up for 1700$. I ran into some wiring issues and it ended up needing a wiring harness(but thats another story.) The past year ive had a few subarus though. It started with a 04 impreza rs that i had picked up for 3k.



My old 05 WRX (should have never gotten rid of but was stupid,bought it for 3400$ and built it back up to an amazing shape from the PO's poor handling)

This


to that


I had bought a sonic yellow 03 wrx but it was complete junk...stupid me. Then after trading it for a 240sx. I sold it and bought a 04 Forester xt. The i sold it cause i came across a 5spd forester xt for cheaps then i had to sell it recently cause i was let go from my job. So therefor i couldnt afford to keep fixing it. First pic is the auto forester and second is the 5spd Forester xt.




Ok,ok..sorry to bore ya with my car background. I love miatas and have missed being in one since my old M edition. After i sold my forester i began to search for a NB. I came across this one for 2400$ Has some hail damage but will eb touched up by a PDR place. The car has 124k miles and is a LS package. I guess thats the front lip,side skirts and some other things? Anyways some things have been done prior to me owning it. An Rspeed(sp?) intake, Jackson Racing header and some kind of catback(need to get under and see what kind it is). Over all its a great car so far just needs soem major cleaning. As far as mods go ill just be doing a cd player tmrw and ordering a h1 mini hid retrofit kit from TRS, aswell as doing fluids etc. I hope you have slightly enjoyed reading my Boring thread but ill def have some more things to keep you interested. I do plan on collecting parts over the winter for a turbo setup using a subaru td04 that i have laying around.

Welcome.

I was really liking the thread/progress until I saw what kind of "driving" you are doing with this car.

I can honestly say that about 99% of this forum, if noticed you in person doing that (d0riftoing on the street, with complete disregard for the road, going in the opposite lane, etc) would force you off the road, run you over, back up, do it again, then take a dump on your corpse.

You are a complete and utter moron if you do that on the street.

I'm sorry but if I'm driving down a twisty road spiritedly and some jackhole is coming at me sideways, IN MY LANE, you best believe I'll be furious.

It looks like you have a bit of oversteer that needs to be tuned out of your suspension...

I hope that's the truth, cause in those pics it looks like a blind corner.

Actually, I see what appears to be 2 different blind corners that he crosses the double yellows on...


Also lol @ "I wasn't drifting, I was just doing donuts near a blind corner"
