Just got back from a trip to Carl's Jr in the Mini. This clutch seems to have more bite than my SVT's does. I finished it around 11 o clock this evening. So glad to have it out of the garage. Just one drive in it just reminds you have why this car exists though. Really feels like a go kart more than a car. Now to finish the SVT and do a timing belt in a Honda Civic for my bro in law.

RWD bug is evil !!!




so, it's 3am.... just came back from Austin after committing this crime....





it was supposed to be another SVT for me, spent 3 months looking for one, even looked over cars as far as Alabama and Georgia, but just couldn't find any worth the asking price, and private party sellers were all really messed up in the head, couldn't get anything done.

So today in the morning I woke up with the "RWD bug" and around noon decided I will buy me one.... by 3pm, I knew which one I want.... by 6pm had it insured and credit union loan approved, arrived in Austin just before 9pm (yes, they waited), spent 2 hours looking over car, test driving, and signing papers, left for Houston around 11pm and here I am..... RWD bug satisfied.


PS.

Also today - I paid off my SVT \o/ Now it's mine and only mine, and I can do what I want with it :D



PS2. wife thought all the way there that we are going to pickup an SVT, hrhrhr, her facial expression when we arrived there - priceless :)

well, car is not in good shape, half of the fun will be fixing it up..... just like my SVT :P


but well, that's what I get for picking cars the same way as girls: "if looks good, likes to be driven hard.... don't car much if has some issues"

car has 120k miles almost, had engine changed once already around 80k, and yes Daniel, those engines are tricky.

so far on the way from Austin to Houston it burned at around 25mpg, that was a positive surprise,
Good thing I can buy oil very cheap, as those cars run one a mixture of oil n fuel :P

car is very, very fun, oh those shifts at 9k rpm.... :D
