Blast from the past

Came across these the other day of my old car and thought i'd put it up. I've got a lot I still need to load onto the net (mainly old pictures with different rims i've had, etc)

I bought the car new in january of 1999. Day 2 it got lowered with the eibach prokit...i then went on to mess with about half a dozen different suspension setups till I settled on the sportlines you see in these pics. Car went through a lot of stages, was black for most of it's life...on and on...

Always loved your car Scott, one of my main inspirations. I especially loved the color. Can't believe you're considering getting another one, that would just be a trip. You were also one of the few sprayers in a 1st gen, you and dust

Just FYI, I replaced the CL with this







Somewhat stock dyno (car only had a canned tune on it)




I bought the car thinking I wouldn't mod it....well this was here the 2nd day of ownership



My plans are mainly suspension as I don't think the car needs more power. I've done a lot of bushing upgrades and plan on a fully adjustable coilover set in the near future, but I have some DBA rotors and EBC Red pads i'm putting on tomorrow.

I remember those videos. Everyone brought up the music in the background, and 3 years later everyone still does. lol. Always loved your car Scott, and loved the bigger badder american brother even more! That thing was a beauty at the Pasadena meet.

Love the color. The only thing stopping me from painting it similar to that (maybe a bit darker) is the tan interior.

i'd think of a color that'd match the tan interior, like a candy green or something (might be a little too bright)
