Default Haven't been around in a while.... miss my miatas!

Well I haven't posted much since I sold my black turbo NB a while back.... it's changed hands a couple times and the current owner apparently has had some issues with the car :(

I bought a 2003 evo to replace the black miata... its fun but it's not really me

It's lightly modded, intake, intercooler piping, exhaust, and a tune. 320ish whp (don't have the dyno handy).... it's quick, but not FAST I'm in no way attatched to this car, a buddy built it and i got it from him as it stands now for a decent price and I'll probably keep it for a while as a daily.

My current toy is a 2005 porsche cayenne twin turbo
450hp awd, with all the bells and whistles Love this truck! don't plan on keeping it long, as I bought it to sell for a small profit
Here are some pics!

When I get the cayenne sold, I'll end up back in a miata (looking for an lsx swapped car), or in a supra or rx7...

Basically I miss this place.... I've found that I really have no interest in posting on the evo forums at all.... everywhere else sucks! Keep fighting the good fight here guys and gals!

Yeah..sell that ugly POS Porsche....someone couldn't even afford to put matching tires on those ghetto-*** wheels :lmao: A good friend of mine is a tech at the local Porsche dealership and constantly tells me the stories of how junky the Cayennes are.


The EVO on the otherhand....I want those wheels....

The evo is considerably more fun in the snow.... Mostly because I'm not afraid to break it lol!
I'm going to need a link to somewhere who sells those plates! I'll feel at home in no time!
