I was going to postpone all the pics until I could edit #2 post; I'll just have cut & paste it when the site "fixes" itself!
I looked back into the "vaults" for the oldest pictures I had of the car; and was only able to find a grainy copy.
That's all the early stuff I could locate. Since then there's been a re-tune to my power/econ programming, an MT285 getrag swap w/ stage3 clutch kit & lightweight fidanza flywheel. Coil over setup, beefier sway bars, energy suspension poly bushings creeping their way throughout the underside, and some exterior and I.C.E. upgrades... here's some more recent pics:

I know I'm missing a spelling error and the grammer-notsi in me will cringe; I'm also probably somewhat out of order chronologically with some of the pictures (again: if the site "heals" I can go back and fix it!!!!). I know I missed a few!
