Where have I been? Am I going crazy or is that a Miata? Didn't you just get a newish car that you've been talking about modding out? Maybe I need to go back and read some threads...

Took me a second to understand if it was a dealer car that you could drive or if it was your car.

It's nice though, especially for the summer!

Well weve had it for a few months and I finally decided to snag it up at their cost so im happy.

Summer great...winter, not so much...not only will I have to work with a light RWD car, but short gearing, jumpy throttle, and tight steering...this is gona be an interesting season to say the least haha

Yes its my new daily, the civic will be no more

After I pay it off I can start to mod..Flying miata intake kit, and their exhaust kit (turbo back) gets you from 155whp to around the 210 area, all for around $1400 usd not including install...thats some bang for the buck

First step is to get the tires off, then I can get the repair done and start refinishing.

Also picked up a free in-dash. Guy said it turns on but the screen doesnt move out, so thats a little project as well.

He also gave me 4 Civic EG cornerlamps to play with. I want to see if I can black them out and seal them right so they dont leak, if I succeed I will black out my headlights.

I figure a month till the wheels are ready for tires

Tell me what? That you are indecisive and possibly retarded? That's what the quotes were there to show/prove.

You're kidding, right? Like, you're seriously not THIS stupid, right? In what part of me calling you an indecisive retard, do you see me saying that you're b/s'ing and don't own the car?

Tell me then, where is my question flawed? Or just try to dodge the issue like you do every time you get found out.

In response to your comment, let's try this again:

Too stupid to even form a logical insult. Try again.

You're dumber and more pathetic than I've imagined. You continuously try to argue with various members of the forum and always lose the argument because you are too stupid to comprehend what is going on. You then switch the topic and the cycle repeats itself. Moreover, you use the same comebacks and insults every time, no matter how old they are and even if they are, obviously, incorrect.
