VEHICLE STORY

So I've always been into modifying, building, and really have never driven a stock vehicle. In the past, I've played with a 91 Miata, 87 Ranger, 98 Cherokee Sport, 98 Grand Cherokee 5.9 LTD, 94 F150 and a few odds and ends and motorcycles along the way. This car was intended to just be a family hauler and daily driver, but my urge to change it was driven when I saw how ugly it is. Seriously, what is it? A hatchback with no interior space? A crossover with less interior space? A frog that morphed into a car? I had to take a swing at making the ugly duckling less ugly. Little by little, I'll chip away at making this thing unique to me. I know these cars don't handle power very well with a CVT trans, so I'll predominantly focus on aesthetic modifications. I do plan to do some little things along the way such as a CVT cooler, upgraded turbo, and some other little odds and ends. Nothing crazy, just enough to give it a little pep. Thanks for stopping by!
