The old lady now has 170,000 miles on her but still runs strong! Never left on the road or sent me to the shop. I am the third owner of this car and have done just one upgrade, being the halo lights. I drive an average of 2000 miles a month between San Francisco and San Diego.

There is a sunny break in Vancouver today, so i got out to snap a few pictures.










Rear left damper is blown, as you can see.. it's riding much high on the left, and i can feel the broken piece, getting it fixed by my cousin who owns a garage soon!
