2000-2002: (15-17yrs old)
1991 Honda Accord EX 4 DR- "The Learning Experience"
Full Custom Paint "Laguna Seca Blue" ,
Z3 Fenders
"Shaved" Door Handles w/ remote door poppers
"Shaved trim
Urethane Lip kit, Fiberglass skirts &rear bumper.
All white emblems, grills, turn signals, etc.
18" OZ Racing Wheels (White)
"GT Touring" style wing.
Full 10 setting adjustable coilovers
JDM H22A (DOHC VTEC 2.2 Liter 210HP Engine)
Just about every performance Part & Head work (Port & Polish) 5 angle Valve cuts, Camshafts etc.
Momo Steering wheel, Monster Tach w/ shift light, 5 or 6 Auto-meter Guages
More plenty more mods' I don't remember...

Made a few mid to high 14 second passes at West Hampton dragstrip.

Yes... Ugly and slow (Got the color right at least) but a HUGE learning experience. Did ALL the mechanical work myself with the exception of the machine work. One of the things I learned is painting a 4 door Honda Accord BRIGHT blue, and putting a loud cat-less exhaust is a good idea if you enjoy getting 10 traffic tickets/ week (equipment violations and driving out of class)
Dozens of tickets, and thousands of dollars later, lesson learned...


----------------
2002-2003:
1991 Honda CRX Si (Mint Cond. Black w/ 5MT) "THE SLEEPER"
JDM B16A w/ every bolt on.
150 Dry Nitrous Kit
Full MSD ignition with Timing Retard button (Activated at WOT w/ NOS & VTEC)
STOCK EXHAUST
STOCK SUSPENSION
STOCK EXTERIOR


Ran consistent mid to low 13 sec ET's w/o NOS, Never made it to the track with No2 but It was a ROCKET..Racing cocky C-5 Corvette owners was always my favorite because they would always assume their cars were suddenly broken...

-------------------
2003-2008
2003 Mitsubishi Evolution VIII - The "Lucky I survived it" car
ACT Clutch(es)
Shep Racing Tranny
Injen FMIC
Greddy Profec B Spec II Electronic boost controller (21 psi)
HKS 272* Intake Cam, 268* Exhaust Cam
Dynaflash ECU
HKS 2.75" Downpipe
QTP (Quicktime Performance_ Electronic Exhaust cutout welded into a 3" testpipe.
Methanol Injection (ran 27psi)
10.5 Hotside on the OEM "Big 16g Twin scroll turbo
18"x 11" Privat Wheels

Blew first clutch @ 3k miles. Not covered under warranty
Replaced with ACT Disc clutch and installed lightened flywheel while I was at it which voided warranty, Blew countless syncros, diffs, etc...Learned how to rebuild transmissions with that car.

Only tracked it once w/ Clutch, Boost controller, and Downpipe ONLY, (Still stock exhaust)...Ran 13.1-13.40's all day in the 106-110mph range... Def would have been in the low 12's with the rest of the mods & Meth inj. At only 18 years old, I was way too young to have a car that fast, lucky to survive MANY extremely close calls with death.

2008-2014 Had "license issues"
2002 Nissian Altima GXE (Black 5MT)

------------------------------------

June 3rd 2014, retook my road-test and literally got a ride STRAIGHT to the BMW Dealship...Test drove 4 or 5 M3's in 2 days and the next day on my birthday June 4th 2014 drove off the Lot with my fully loaded Bone stock M3 Coupe 6MT w/ about 20k miles...Extended warr & maint. (Drive 20-30K miles a year).

Funny because the M3 combines all the best features and all the specific things I loved about each car and rolled them into one package with the added luxury on top of it...

The handling and similar body lines as the EVO8, the high revving, high compression of the B series Engine in the CRX (& HP/LBS Ratio) and the showcar theme, styling of my first car...Now Im in the financial industry and meet with clients, this was a natural evolution and my only choice


Only 5 months later...

BTW: Sorry for the long winded post, makes me nostalgic...

19"x9.5" ET 25 Fronts, 19" x 10.5" ET 25 Rears. Hankook 255&275/35/19 Ventus V-12 evo tires...With custom raised white lettering kit from Tread Wear Letters Inc....Here's a link to that site, (They actually used my car for some of the Gallery Pictures, and sometimes it comes up on the homepage

I love them, little difficult to clean because of the porous surface, but I get lots of compiments, I NEVER see them on ANY cars EVER, and they weighed in at 17.5lbs each (rear) on the shipping invoice.

Check your PM's, I have a treat for you...
