VEHICLE STORY

This is the first car I purchased. It wasn't really what I was looking for, but you know how mothers are, it was definitely by far the best option. The car has unknown manufacturer aftermarket wheels that came with the vehicle. The wheels are wrapped in various 235/55ZR17 tires. The car has definitely grown on me even though the car has literally sat in the garage (for repairs) more than it has been driven. It is definitely a runner when it is running. With no other personal experience of driving other vehicles to compare with this car, it really seems to grip well. During the summer I'll run down the windy roads through the various valleys and hilly areas in NE Ohio with no troubles. It really seems to go exactly where I want it to go and comes out of the corners strong pushing myself deep into the still intact leather seat.   ***All work performed on this vehicle was by myself and in some instances, assistance from my dad*** Components that have needed replaced were harmonic balancer/crank shaft belt pulley (total of 3 have been on the vehicle since I have owned it), a new crank shaft timing gear along with a new timing belt and timing components, new water pump, tune up with Bosch Iridium spark plugs and 8mm wires, new fuel injectors, new fuel pump, new heater core, new hood release cable, new rear struts, new calipers all around, new brake pads and rotors all around, 2 used tires, 4 new tires, 2 more new tires, new windshield, all new headlights (housings and sockets), and new fog light assemblies. Accessories that were replaced by choice; carbon fiber style tail lights, Kenwood stereo head unit (single CD, iPod integration, USB), custom made air intake with Spectre air filter. Planned modifications if I still own the vehicle long enough, new exhaust from the heads back and a well made air intake. The thing I am pushing off the most are a new set of wheels.
