- Background & Plans
I bought this car brand-new in April of 2008. The salesman tried to convince me to buy another one on his lot because the blue one had a whole 150 miles on it. Well, now it has 158,000 miles and I'm glad I got the color I liked.
Once the warranty ran out I started doing autocross with it. It has gone on several road trips, including visiting the mountains of New Mexico when I got out of the Chair Force, and been through Deal's Gap. A few seasons of autocross (tuned for the STU class) and 3 HPDEs at NCCAR.
