in a previous post i had mentioned that i’m lucky enough to be at a stage in life where picking up some of those boyhood dream cars has become a possibility. but for some reason my boyhood dream cars were the most complex [and likely to break, requiring massive repair bills] pieces of automotive manufacturing known to man.

So, against better judgement, i did this. I’m not a real big fan of red, but for some reason it just works here. and its getting harder and harder to find a decent 5-speed for a reasonable price.

this is when i went to test drive it. looking menacingly down on the car she’ll be replacing :(

unfortunately, the purchase didn’t include these sweet wheels.


on the way home, with the original manhole cover wheels.


i did have a set of turbo twists lying around that suit the car almost perfectly. :)


wish me luck.
