    • All is standard on the car apart from uprated sports radiator.
    • Audio: Kenwood mp3 cd head, alpine front components,

    • MY02 Impreza WRX Sportswagon
    • Just cosmetic mods so far :
    • Morette twin headlamp conversion
    • Smoked side repeaters
    • STi carbon fibre reflector inserts
    • Planned mods (when my missus stops spending my money on kitchen appliances, etc.) :
    • - Remapped ECU

    • - Fatter intercooler hoses
    • This should take it from 215 to 265bhp
    I was hoping to get a de-cat downpipe, but I dunno if this will affect the warranty, emmissions, etc.

    • Removed factory cd player and replaced with Kenwood mp3 player (normal cds suck, they loop before I make it to work.)

    More pictures of the cars

    The dark one had a accident a year ago and it's stoped.

    Pics of the wrecked car.

    I'm trying to buy a BX GTI (115 bhp) or a BX 16valve (160bhp).



    This is what I drive:

    1990 Rover Mini Cooper 1275cc A+ series, Carb model.

    Mods are as follows:
    • Maniflow tubular steel LCB exhaust manifold.
    • Maniflow single-box centre-exit exhaust with 3 inch rolled
    • stainless tailpipe (makes a wonderful burbling noise under
    • K&N open type cone filter on 1 3/4 inch S.U. Carb.
    • K&N open type engine breather filters.
    • Custom adjustable-height suspension struts.
    • Spax gas-adjustable shock absorbers.

    • Cut-down KAD Quickshift gearchange.
    • Cobra Clubman bucket seats and 4-point harnesses.
    • Pioneer CD player and rear shelf speakers. (No crazy I.C.E.)
    • Genuine Rover Sportspack arches - colour-coded.
    • Stupidly small steering wheel and some shiny stuff here and there.
    Goes pretty well for a largley standard cooper lump. Had it off the clock on a few occasions (on a german autobahn of course cos the speed limit is 70mph here in the UK - ahem ;oP)

    • '87 Pontiac Fiero GT
    • mid engine 3.8l v6 - hoping to swap with a corvette motor ;)
    • also, in the future, mabe a lambo kit :rock:
    It looks much more red in real life. I just got it, so I haven't done much yet...



    That small metal frame on back is from the soft-top for it, I either have it totally topless (just rollcage) or I usually have a hardtop on it.

    Got some new chunky wheels since, made myself a stainless steel dual exhaust, tuning engine atm (have a track car V8 to put in, but im super scared about insurance, im only 18 and this is my first car). Gonna repaint it all (not my choice of colour/stickers) and do some serious mucking about with odd stuff, just smarten it up and raise it a little for off roading.

    Good fun

    1988 CRX DX (basically the lighest CRX chassis aside from the HF which would require brake and suspension modifications to be competant that would bring it up to about the same weight)
    Stripped all sound deadening carpeting and interior plastic garbage except dash
    Sparco Speed racing seat, stock Recarro passenger seat still in
    B16A SiR1 DOHC VTEC Motor Swap w/ S1 Transmission
    the usually intake, 4-1 header, exhaust.
    KYB AGX 4-way adjustable struts that I leave set on 4 (stiffest setting)
    Ground Control coilover suspension with perches set 2 inches below stock height.
    neuspeed front and rear sway bars.
    TSW Trophy 15x7 wheels wrapped in 195/50ZR15 BF Goodrich Comp T/As, although soon 205/50/15 Falken Azenis
    ECU chipped, VTEC@4800 RPM, redline @ 9000 rpm, secondary O2 sensor disabled.

    Drag 3 turbo kit coming perhaps next summer after an SiR front end conversion.

    Everything done to the car I did myself except the exhaust which I didn't have the facilities to weld and fabricate piping for. Other than that, everything down to the engine swap which took me 4 days, the wiring for the motor, the suspension work, was all done by me.

    this was my daily driver until I came down here to UC santa cruz and left it back home for the school year. New smog laws here in california have me wondering if it will ever be street legal here in california again :(. Its primary use for fun is autocross, I don't drag race it, although I do go for some fun on the mountain passes frequently. It surprises a lot of people, everything on the outside suggests its pretty much stock except for the wheels and racing seat, and the fact that it is lowered. Tail pipe is almost exactly the same as the stock and the sound until I hit VTEC is pretty muted. I've given WRXs, integra type Rs, S2000s, and M3s runs for their money, especially on twisties, but I'm always very sportsmanlike about it and always like to make sure its all in good fun.

    Yuh-huh. :) 14 foot 9 inches of solid 1956 Leyland Titan PD2/12 half-cab with Metro-Cammell bodywork (the last surviving example to retain its original roof no less :geek: it's listed in a book somewhere too)
    10 litre diesel engine Unf! Unf! :hip:

    I had to rebuild the gearbox once (after it seized in reverse after being flooded one time) so I happened to take a photo of it

    I have a bunch of pics of it at Glastonbury and other various festivals and free parties too somewhere (from my more rebellious days).
    I could tell you more but you'd probably want pics to prove, so I'll leave it at that for now... ;)

    [Edit] Heh, we used to get the funniest looks going to the McD's drive-thru for a thick shake on a hot day. :lol:

    Here's my 'banger' :

    Make : Vauxhall
    Model : Cavalier CD 2.0i
    Year : 1989
    Max Power : 129bhp / 95kW @ 5600rpm
    Max Torque : 180Nm @ 4600rpm

    MODS :

    Sony front-loader CD head unit.
    JBL 6x9 rear speakers.
    Clear side repeaters.
    'Sport' springs (much stiffer and lower)
    Rear spoiler (was fitted when the car was bought but it's not standard)

    I've had the car for just over 3 years now, it's starting to give me a lot of problems but it hasn't been very well looked after and the previous owner was a boy racer so it was thrashed pretty much every day by him :nono:

    It's soon to be replaced so watch this space! ;)

    I've still not got round to taking a proper photo of the car, so all I have to throw in are two photos taken by chance with the car in it...
    It's a Ford Ka (Eurch I know) Collection "sport".

    It can sort of shift, if it's just me in it otherwise it's just a game of building up speed. That said it cruises on the motorway nicely, even when it had 4 people in it with all their luggage it still kept up with the pace :)

    And I cant complain, it came with rather nice wide wheels (for the size of car... they're bigger than the wheels on my dad's Megane :rock: ) And it also came with rather nice looking alloys... god bless ford having a good day.

    Here is the front for those of you who dont know how cars work. Dont mind the license plate, i just got the darn car a week or two ago.
    :rock: Oakleys :rock: (well worth the $150)

    By april my license plate might be changed to "NOT RICE" cause im sick of people with civics with huge mufflers trying to talk to me like im as stupid as they are.
    Dont get me wrong, a turbo eclipse or something like that is not rice, but anyone who puts an $80 muffler on their car and thinks its a street racer is just dumb.
