I loved your last car,  this one is just going to be bad ass.  I can't wait to see it in person.

Well.... the car was picked up last Sunday.  It's more than double the horsepower of my prior SE (stock plus headers). Holy crap, the zoom has arrived!  Sick....

Saw this somewhere else.  Looks like you got an awesome deal.  Can't wait to see it at an Autocross soon. :)

BEEN PLAYING WITH THE CAR A BIT BEFORE THE SNOW FLIES.

Had a ding doctor pull out a pair of dings; cleaning up the interior a bit. Removing the hard-wired radar detector (well, half way) and fixed an interior light.

Still need to adjust the idle and replace the points and cap before winter hits.  And collecting a few parts for the interior clean up as my winter project.

Part of me wants to remove the interior roll bar.  Not sold on whether to do it or not.

To bad you got rid of your 1st gens, but you should be free to bring your latest toy out.  I would love to see it again.
