Default Newish from Minnapolis/St. Paul zone (pics)

I've been creepin' on you guys for a little while and actually made a few posts so I figured I'd do an intro for you colorful folks. I've been vehemently searching for info, and totally not looking at who provides, but thankful for it.

Anyway..

Bought a low mileage (25k), Red MSM last year from a dude. Some very light mods. Tokico Shocks and FM Springs, throttle body pipe, intake, MBC, wheels, short throw and a trans mount. Gave me all the stock parts. Basic stuff. Kept it stored during the cold months. Disclosed that it was probably tracked. Whatever. Ought to be the perfect "fun project car" right? Yep!

I'm in the slow and gentle (because of money) process of making it bit faster and corner-y. Wanting to do some MSLabs and ARTech goodness next. Have a potato, just want to accompany it. Also the MSM ECU is really detrimental to the experience of this car at the moment.

Been through the mountains with it and have done a few AutoX with it. Nothing too intense, but fun nonetheless.

Here's some pictures. The beer tap handle was just because I found it cheap and like beer. Not permanent of course.

EDIT: Forgot to add a bit of info about myself (not like you guys care that much, but). Mid 20s Network Engineer dude that likes video games, frolf, paintball, cars, and computers. Went through awkward/weird phases and everything. Am a mammel. Kind of a dbag sometimes.
