I lost to a turbo E36 M3 on saturday. Because of my missing second gear synchro. Being able to pull on another car is great but not so great when they get 6 lengths on you because it took you 3 seconds to shift. It angered me to not be able to get in front of the beamer.

I then fucked on a new sick looking lowered sti hatch with what I assume was the full bolt buffet. That **** is fast though for what I assume cost no more than $2000 in power mods.

The nice weather is starting to bring out some nice cars. I have seen lots of rouchshelbysalleenmach1 mustangs around but always while in my subaru. hurrah

Oh, race of the week was witnessed while swimming upstream during the beginnings of afternoon rush hour. A Ferrari 458 chasing a Honda Prius through traffic. The Honda Prius was at my last sighting, in front.

That new Honda hybrid looks so much like the Prius that I'm surprised they haven't had a lawsuit...

Who's car is this? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...94669529#v4-39
If cjernigan can't sell his car...I can't even believe someone would shell out the money for this thing. Then again, it does have a hydra, but still...is this anybody's car from here?

If that's the car I'm thinking of, then it's a drift car and has been beat to **** nearly 100 times and repaired multiple times. Buyer better get the scoop on the real history of that car.

We had a mechanic come in yesterday and take a look at it and he said the car isn't getting any spark and he said we would need to replace either the ecu, or coil.
Yeah, sounds about right lol. It's the same car.

I wouldn't pay a dime for it, let alone 7 grand.

girlie tattoos in their faces..what? I don't even know what that means.

Is it some sort of repressed childhood memory of you waking up with Mike Tyson's **** in your mouth?

I took those for historical purposes.

I still have no idea what "girlie tattoos in their faces" meant, or what your last response meant(besides the obvious homosexual part) But I do understand that people in your culture get butthurt when Americans make great dyno numbers at world renown shops.

I met that guy the other day, he has no clue how to work on cars. The hydra is has is dead and he does not care enough to call them up and get a replacement. He sold my friend a car for $1800 because "the exhaust leak was causing it to run bad". More like his mechanic put the plug wires on the wrong coils and was too stupid to realize it had a terrible misfire/running like complete ***.
