black shiny door stopper. The wedge lives on! I like to call it TRON. I was a poet and didn't know it. It took my heart and buzzed away with it's little clickity-clackety engine. IMHO the pinnacle of pure eighties styling (argueably) (ok, at least runner-up to the Delorean).

Basically, my fun car and autocross toy. Spend most of my time just fixing it, but managed to get some koni sports on there plus some suspension refreshing.

Black, pop-up headlights, flared arches, ground effects, rear wing. This car has everything anyone could need.

Looks fantabulous :) Also, you asked a while ago about swaybarless- I should add that it's just *impossibly* awful on bad roads. I wind up doing half the speed limit just to keep the rubber on the ground and my head from hitting the ceiling.

Ha! I knew it. There are a couple of folks on the owners club forum that swear it's not that bad commuting to work with 700f/450r spring rates. I'd like to see them do that in Atlanta! In any case, thanks for all the compliments!

I probably shouldn't say this, but, everytime I go somewhere in my '89 MR2SC, I play my starwars theme song from the cd changer. I am so eighties.

Nice. I've found making laser & explosion noises helps too.

"It took my heart and buzzed away with it’s little clickity-clackety engine." I'd be happy to help you improve that ;) http://www.hachiroku.net/forums/showthread.php?t=19991

Thanks for the heads up ;) If I end up in a class that allows porting I'll give you a call.
