really falling behind here

just plain classic miata, these cars are soo rapidly becoming classics and have quickly become the go to car for the budget sports car, replacing the ae86’s which are now either over priced or destroyed by “drifters”.

what’s there to say, old is cool.

this makes me want to lower mine more, a lot more. the clean non-vip looks is the way to go. as I’ve I’ve always said… “if your car needs a big body kit then you bought the wrong car”

Once again, you don’t need a bunch of garbage add on’s to have a nice car… in fact if you have a bunch of garbage add on’s your car is probably ruined.

life’s all about variety.

Many people, including myself at times, just focus on one type of car or one make and they fixate themselves on that narrow range of cars. This isn’t entirely a bad thing, some of the best builds come from those guys, but life is all about variety.

I can never seem to be able to keep myself to just one car or one make or style, I see awesomeness in nearly every genera. And as you can kinda tell, if you’ve been keeping up with my cars, I’ve had a lot of cars and I change cars a lot. I have recently sold my ’92 civic si hb because for the last few years I’ve been struggling with trying to have one car that can do everything and sharing that car with my wife means that I (willingly) compromise on how I build that car, and because of that compromise my builds are never expressive enough to entertain me or to be a real creative outlet.

Because of this I have bought a newer Honda CR-V, great car I might add, I really enjoy driving it to work and running errands, but it by no means fills that creative void.

I don’t build cars to please other people, I build them to have fun. I love the build, once it’s done I sell it, I’ll drive it around for a few months or weeks but once it’s done (or reached the limitations of being a daily usage car) or I ‘m tired of it I’ll sell it. My favorite builds are junkyard builds, like the old way we build corolla’s by mismatching parts of other cars that work like, supra wheels, any random electric fan that’ll fit, camaro rear shocks, mr2 rear shocks in the  front,…etc etc

For me building cars needs to be a creative outlet that’s not for profit or some kind of gain in status, and never never serious…. it’s gotta be fun!!!!!

But now that the daily car is had…… I can focus on projects… not sure what but it will be rwd, and most of the mods will be fabricated by myself and with some help from friends, no more buying a build on ebay and merely assembling it…. I wanna just get back to putting my blood and sweat into it.

Enjoy  and celebrate the differences

Build what you got your way and who cares about the rest.
