So I've been thinking and I'm sad to say that this car is going to be for sale.
When I decided to begin building it in 2005, I was single, living in an apt, and had all the free time in the world. Now I'm married, have a house and property to keep up, and.... I'm going to be a dad next year
I built this car to be a weekend track toy that could still be driven on the street. However, the last time I auto-x'd this car was 2005
The car only needs a wastegate & tuning and some better suspension to be complete, but I've had a new wastegate sitting here for a year and have not even had time to work on it. And if I don't have time now, I definitely will not when I add a child to the mix.
All I have used the car for is my long work commute because it gets great MPG, the motor has never even seen vtec since being boosted in summer of 2009 due to the wastegate. I don't have the time to use it to its full potential. Plus it rides like very stiff and has no heat so I definitely won't be taking any family trips in it.
It looks nice parked in the garage but that's not really what I built it for. I hate to think that it's time for me to pass it on to someone who will get better use out of it and I'll get something with 4 doors - more family friendly.
I always thought I'd have this car forever but it's just not practical at this time. It has been 1/3 of my life lol as well as the inspiration for this website.
I'm losing $ and so much time & blood spent on the car, but it doesn't do me much good to hang on to those thoughts if I don't have time to do anything with the car anymore.
I'm not completely decided on what I will get yet... That's another thread topic
