VEHICLE STORY

I got this car one month after getting my license.  It was the culmination of saving from childhood plus trading in a handed down car.  I owned it for almost 7 years (until the week after I got married).  I learned a ton of lessons on this car: how far is too far (I supercharged it for more power, took it off after the headache, then went with an awesome audio system route, lowered it a tad too far, all while daily driving it) basic car control (took it to a few track driving classes and dailied it Minnesota, year round, while supercharged and lowered) and how much more important a relationship with a car is than the street cred.  I traveled all over the US with this, driven on every type of terrain, met my wife, life long friends, and made memories I'll never forget.  I wish I had not been so eager to sell it when I did.  But then I would have missed out on my time with my Miata.
