History
bought this thing May 17th, 2012 for $700 with a blown freeze plug, dumb chrome wheel covers, and a rear spoiler from an Eagle Talon that was held up in the middle by a sink fixture. pulled the motor to replace the freeze plugs, swap to a manual transmission, and repair the fender aprons. while I was at it, threw in coils, a welded diff, and bucket seats to have it ready for its first drift event- May 10th, 2013.

the event was a total trash fire- the heater core blew while on the way to the sign-in area, one of the brake calipers kept hanging up (so no handbrake), the power steering was wonky, and the motor blew on the last run of the day. got the head straightened, only to discover that the threads to bolt the upper timing chain idler pulley were stripped out. bought another motor and swapped that in over the winter, putting in a new clutch and a bunch of PBM suspension arms at the same time. finally went through the ordeal of registering the car (never buy a car from a state that doesn't do titles, kids) and drove it around on the street N/A for a while. got bored of that, and October 2014 threw on a simple T25 setup, which made it a day before a boost spike took out the head gasket.

at this point it's April 2015, I've put less than 1000 miles on the car since I bought it originally, and motor #3 is finally in- with a brand new head gasket and ARP head studs this time. I drove it around for a while to work some bugs out, then drop it off with a friend to get the third clutch swapped in to prep it for a drift event. in August 2015 I took it to a Club Loose North event, where it was pretty bulletproof all day (I sucked though) until the bolts from the starter decided that they didn't want to be a part of things anymore and left the car, so we pop-started it to get home and spent the entire 3 hour drive hoping that I wouldn't stall it in traffic. did some more minor fixes to the car over the next month, and put it in storage while I got ready to move to Florida, where it's sat ever since.

things to do for 2017/2018: install the Greddy sandwich plate and oil cooler, hydro brake assembly with the Wilwood calipers, replace the downpipe with one from PBM, and fix the rust on the floor and frame rail horns. maybe even drive the damn thing.
