    Default My Baby

    Bought the car when I was 16 as my first car, not knowing much about any car it was one of the cleaner looking ones on the used lot so I decided to check it out. Test drove it, enjoyed how nice it drove, had plenty of power and enjoyed the supercharger whine.

    Has been driven everyday to downtown (school) and work for a year now, bought it with almost 117k miles, has 127k now.

    Decided to look at the cars history, had one previous owner, some lady from Chicago, it reached 100k miles in 2008 and was not driven much since then. When I bought it the car had those aftermarket tail lights, kenwood radio and a K&N CAI installed.

    Things I've done to the car have been nothing but maintenance and replacing shot parts.
    Control Arms
    Tie Rods
    LIM Gasket/Elbows/Blower Gasket
    Supercharger Oil
    All Wheel Hub Assemblies
    R1 Concept Drilled/Slotted Rotors Front and Rear
    Powerstop Calipers Front/Rear
    Tranny fluid/filter

    I have a set of SD Headers coming this week, will have my friends shop weld em on since the old ones are rusted and need to be cut.

    Future plans are TEP Tranny, Intercooling, and Turbo in that order.

    Insurance is a joke! Full Tort 33 years old, home owner no accidents, no tickets and I pay $1500 to insure a car worth $1000 on a good day. I kept a $100 deducible because fires. I am calling around to get it on the same collector insurance as my Z/28. I currently pay $240 a year for an agreed upon value of 16k.
