I miss this a little.....


But I miss this more in part becasue you don't see them anymore and I had a low build # of 219. The upgrades included a ful AEM ECU to control the fuel and air mix to the JRSC flowing through a Kamikaze header and out the back with a Thermal 3" exhaust. Laid down a still mild 210whp (50 more ponies than stock) but it did give it a little extra fun.

I don't really regret selling my Focus cause it went to someone that I know will take care of it as much as I did. I regret selling my '07 Si. I had so much fun in that car.

Thank u sir.

Special ordered the color when there were only about 50 in the whole island. Few months later everyone had my color lol. Squeezed the most i could out of the little td04-13 oem turbo. Got 281whp 320wtq with the 1st beyondredline reflesh in the hole region. Stock #'s = 181whp 200wtq. Added supporting modds of course = intake, fmic, one step colder plugs, full tbe 3" single exit made by me and the clutch of course took a crap when i went over 270wtq. Upgraded to comp clutch stage 4, 6 puck and lightweight single mass flywheel. Then quickly got bored and upgraded to a atp gt30 on stock internals, managed to make 350ishwhp and 330wtq on a very safe tune. It was a blast to drive would beat just about any "normal" car that would try against me.

Day i got her



Other shots, dont have many, switched phones last week and havent had time to transfer my +3000 photo over lol

2003 Chevy Blazer Xtreme. It was beyond basic with no power anything and the transmission had a funny shift into 2nd gear but I loved it and it was my first car. I had a loud sound system in it and it was dropped 5" over the already 2" the Xtremes were lowered from the factory. I CARFAX'ed it about a year ago and it ended up in Indiana, I always wanted to go to the little town it's supposed to be in and try to find it.



Also it didn't look like much, but it was a Blazer.

All of them I guess?? Well except the Escort GT, I don't really miss that car.

But in particular I sure wish I still had my 1968 Plymouth Satellite. Whoever originally bought the car had optioned it up to just below Sport Satellite/GTX levels of trim. It was repainted from the original pale yellow to a bright red, with the original black vinyl top and interior. 383 big block and 727 ATX. I bought that car for 3,000 bucks in the mid-90's. Even a rust bucket basketcase Satellite goes for more than that now.

Those old Mopars don't go cheap nowadays-even the handyman specials are getting up there in price.

I've never sold a car I run them into the ground till nothing is left then I part it out. I'm hard on cars for some reason.

I even love and care for them but every car or truck I've owned seems to leave on a tow truck.

..... but I do regret getting rid of a few.


My '86 ranger twin stick. My all time favorite truck I spun bearing due to a bad oil pump. I parked it on the side of the road till I could do a engine swap and some one side swiped it and ran. With the damage and the lack of engine I had no choice.

When I first bought it.









The damage.



I started taking off everything I could sell or wanted to keep.

My 98 F150. It was a great truck I got after having a POS GMC Sierra.
For some reason I decided I wanted a Subaru Impreza and traded my Ford in.

1987 Chrysler Conquest Tsi

I got it for a steal, stuck a bunch of new parts and work into it and sold it after a bad deal on a rebuilt turbo went south.
Body was pretty clean and easy fixable, very little rust vs what I see out there.
I want another one, sorta. I know the fuel system is junk and I know how to fix it. I just don't know if I want that headache again.
Fun car though if you get a little power behind it. Handling was great for an aged car.
