Hey all, I'm new to the forum. A little bit about myself. I used to autocross my foxbody about 8-10 years ago but got out of it due to lack of time mostly. I've still been into cars and still have the foxbody. I now have alittle less demanding job so hopefully I can get back into things. I also bought an 84 Eagle 4wd wagon about 2 years ago that used to be a project car for GRM. I've been thinking about entering the 2017 challenge just for laughs and see if I'd like to build a car for next years. Thanks for having me.

New to the forum, been reading the magazine off and one for quite a few years. Autocrossing for about 14 years, actually had the money for a couple years to get on track at VIR, NCCAR with NASA. Now I have the track car, 89 integra with a 94 japanese gsr motor. Mostly sits in the garage. Got a new car, 08 miata, which i hope leads me back to autocross. Tow vehicle is currently an 02 sequoia that just went over 200k miles.

Hi there. Not exactly new here (subscriber for 8-ish years, and peruser of the forums for 2 or 3). I am, however, quite unskilled, and at the age of 50 have decided that's enough of that. Right now, I'm doing a lot of maintenance and upgrades on my '98 Subaru 2.5 GT wagon. I replaced the struts, and added springs successfully. My ordering and installing of a new steering rack hasn't gone as well... (I'll be adding a "Learn Me Stuff" post right after this)

I'm one of five, so pretty sure mine did more than a little.

It was a sad day when that light went on for me.

I landed here a couple of weeks ago or a bit more. just checking in on this thread. Not sure just what I was expecting, but a number of friends were here and said that I needed to be as well. So far, pretty darned good ! Varied interests and skill levels, nice grassroots feel with a good sized handful of Miatas and BMWs thrown in most likely just to make me feel bad that I can't afford them. The Classic Motorsports forum is a real treat, like an extra on-line magazine for free. Only disappointment, and nothing to do with GRM, being that I arrived just as Photobucket was killing all of the images so the various threads are more than annoying to read through and seem to be difficult to repair/rebuild. A whole lot missing without the visuals.

You definitely sound like "one of us," so another welcome to you, TTiaT. And we've got some plans cooking regarding the Photobucket debacle; stay tuned.

Hello- I'm Gus. Longtime reader and just recently started looking into the board. I have a long fascination with cars (like most of you). I have a Factory 5 and a 65 Mustang. While I love the Factory 5, I have more fun the Mustang. I've been slowly building my version of 1965 Ecoboost- good period suspension but while keeping the inline 6.

Anyway, I enjoy the posts (especially the guy building the Jalpa) so I'll be around!

I have been lurking on the forum for about a decade, and reading the magazine for years. I enjoy pretty much anything with an engine or motor. I have been playing with cars since my hotwheel days. I have been tinkering with cars since I realized that my parents vw beetle had an engine at the perfect height for a 5 year old to reach, they quickly got a locking decklid. Growing up, my friends and tinkered with our cars, mostly domestic v8s that went straight. I eventually decided I like cars that can turn and stop. I have owned a ranger, mustangs, econoboxes, torino cobra, el camino, and I learned to drive in a gremlin.I once bought a someone else's unfinished dirt oval stock car project, and it was still unfinished when I ran out of time and money and sold it. My current fleet includes a 2002 acura cl-type s and a beige 2007 honda civic sedan. I am always showing my wife the variety of cars found on here, and she says you are my kinda people.
