'87 Turbo II RX7 Bought it about a month after I got my license after saving up some money working for my dad. This photo was from just a few weeks after I bought it so it was mostly stock, just had some Mustang wheels (puts on flame suit), coilovers and sways. I later built it to be decently quick with a T60-1 and a Haltech. It was a pretty dang fun car, I only blew one motor so I guess I had a pretty good experience with rotaries.



Since then I had a Triumph TR4, S13 240SX, Integra GSR, a couple different RX7s and now the NB.

That would be a fair representation of it. Blown hg and slipping clutch all for 250 dollars. It WAS the gts though.

First car that I daily'd was my dad's 05 Mini Cooper 'vert. Until I wrecked it :(
First car that was actually mine was a 1992 Toyota Camry. 4 cylinder, automatic, and boring as hell. I got it at 192000 miles, for free, and proceeded to beat the living **** out of it every day until the trans exploded at 218k.

How do you wreck a mini, they are idiot proof.
