Very proud of this car. My wife doesn't understand why but I love it.

$800 parts car ended up being my daily driver after a timing belt and been driving it ever since

The day I found her. She was a repo at a local loan company. It didn't run and I bid $800 to beat out a salvage yard that wanted to part it out.

We loaded her on a trailer.

Found out the teeth on the timing belt tore off. I didn't know much about the engines in this car so I was afraid every valve was bent.

After a little research I found out that this little motor was a non interference motor and I replace the timing belt and she fired right up.

She's a beauty! I love that color. I've never seen one that color in the wild before? Is that a factory color?

Wow! I have 383,000 km on my Canadian ZXW. I feel very confident on hitting 400,000, and I could hope to see 500,000, but seeing as I only did 14,000 km in the past year, that may take a while.

Wow! That's remarkable. That has to be a record or in the top 10.
