Default The Landscaper is here!

Hello!!

Chandler(Phoenix) AZ is where I live, and no don't ask me about the immigration thingy cause I'm sick of it.

Back to me, well its more like us. My lady and I own a 1990 which we bought from a elderly gal who loved the S#@t out of it for 20yrs. The floor mats have been covered up with plastic never seen the bottom of a shoe, the original miata enkei wheels have zero, and I mean zero road rash. 160K on the clicker now (never thought I would enjoy a little one..)

Man this car is a blast after a decent set of wheels and cheap Raceland coilovers (no I don't really plan to race it) Funny at 39 I actually like the smoother ride from the cheapos.

Experience? built several mustangs fox and sn95 (only car I'll drive besides japanese and trucks), 3 mk3 supras, ae86 etc..

I do all my own work in the garage except machine work. we do all fab, assembly. I belong to a group of die hard car guys, and we pool together. They actually stopped talking smack after I told them I was going to "build it" now they are working to keep up because they know how these little beasties perfom.

I'm putting together a DIY kit over the next month, considering t28. The pre fabbed kits are very expensive, or poo... My main issue is manifold choice.. everything else is straight forward..

Glad to be here!

Thanks!

Lets see some photos..

AE = alter ego (I'm assuming).

Yeah, CR means Club Roadster, sorry about that. Went to their weekly meetup last night and it was pretty fun, even if they weren't all the best on tech.

So does this mean we have a resident gardening/landscaping expert to get opinions from? Sweet.

"The landscaper" makes me think of Yuffie's level 2 limit break in Final Fantasy VII
