and then i got a parts car to begin with my MTX swap

good ol' ported throttle body

Then i found a good deal on a buddy club front and combat side body kit, my teenage impulses couldn't turn down. This was in about summer 2009. i never fully got it on because it didn't fit right, of course. I had plans on painting it after i molded it but i decided that i didn't like the rice after a couple days.

and then i found a nice little crack in my bald tires (that i should've changed months ago!)

so to add to the rice i put the stock wheels on the rear.. with the nice discolored body kit

Transmission number 2 broke in the autozone parking lot. so it was time to drive the parts car until the next summer where I had time.

On to moving the body kit over...

just a little bondo to fix up the side and i'm off to work delivering pizza.. (i know it's way too much bondo.. I was young and dumb, but i had fun :P)

off to the ohio meet in my cars car. and about 200 miles in, the rear tire blows out..

after that little "experience" i decided to invest in some tires..
