flippin' eck Mike, you must have kept the car industry going single handed!

I've had about 7 cars to date and I'm 37!!

Esprit is in for a pressure test to see if I've done any major damage while fitting a catch tank... Oh the joys of tinkering when you really don't know what your doing...

I'm starting to wish I kept my camaro :D At least then I wouldn't have to borrow my mom's blazer when the 'tus is in the shop, and the water jacket on the chev explodes and the bolts break off in the manifold when I try to remove them :D

same color as gonzalos but with the V6 :D wasn't so bad actually They tightened up the handling on the V8 models alot though

Also mine wasn't a convertible

There's a huge difference between the V6 and the V8, not to mention almost twice as much power. :P Mine has been extremely reliable too.

Actually I wanted to take it to Willow Springs this weekend but they wont let convertibles on the track without a roll bar. :P
