Maybe get one last track event out of her before I let it go.

I just saw this.. and spilled my burning hot chicken pot pie all over my arm and my bed, prompting me to eat the stuff off my arm, and subsequently burning my tongue. Take this as a sign, you can't sell it man, you've put your heart into this car.

Ill probably be keeping the key for sentimental value, and the piston for an ash tray when I smoke a Cuban once a year. I should replace that zip tie with some nice safety wire though..

I was on my way to my first miata challenge and threw a rod out of the side of the block. Luckly a friend of mine let me co-drive his spec miata all day. Good times good times being stuck on the side of the hwy in the middle of the night.

Its these comments that really make it all worth while, Inspiring someone to do great things or chase their dreams is really a great feeling. Me going to school should only result in bigger and better things in life. Thanks for the kind words bud!

when I saw the thread title...



How did you even afford to build this car in the first place? Guess it doesn't matter/not my business but that's just a little odd to me.

Glws.

Lots and lots and lots and lots of paychecks, and much of my spare time wrenching on the thing. Great friends and great people have helped make this car possible, without them this car would not be where it is today. I do however take great pride in knowing exactly where everything is in this car. Down to the white wire with red strip under my hood that goes through the firewall and into the cabin, without looking.

If you see an advertisement for my car, realize that I'm so destitute for cash that you can find me in the handicap stall at the truck stop, ready to service. It will sit in my garage and collect dust with a monthly maintenance drive before I sell it. I'm like Jay Leno, I never sell a car I love.
