    Story behind the car:
    I bought the car in 2005 and it was my daily driver until 2007. I always wanted a car I could restore and turn into a councours champion, however, I started getting really into lapping days at the tracks up here. So the car took a turn in more of the performance and weekend warrior side of the table. In 2007 I was hit by a civic who was swerving though my lane and he knocked me into another car, The civic ran but luckily there were enough witnesses to get me off the hook. This left me with the decision of whether or not to fix the car and begin the restoration or just give up on it, I think its obvious which decision I made.
    Every year the car gets a little bit better and better. I am pretty close to being fully restored and I am hoping to be done in the next few years. If you would like more details on the build you can find them here:

                      Your car looks great, you've obviously put a LOT of effort into it. Very, very clean.


                      Strange question for you though, any idea what wheels are on the car behind yours in this picture? They look like E46 CSL's in a 4x100 bolt pattern. Sorry for the hijack but I gotta know!!
