- Background & Plans
Bought the Boss in 2016 with 6,000 miles in Oklahoma and drove her home to PA. She has never been a daily driver but I still put on over 25,000 miles in the first 2 years just driving twisties with the occasional road trip and trip to the track! After my first track day in 2017 I was hooked, and moving to CA allowed me access to some of the best driving roads and tracks in the country. I have now driven over 40,000 miles and done 17 track days in 4 years with the Boss, slowly modifying her as necessary for the track and my improving skills.
I am planning to keep her forever, trying to keep her as close to stock as possible while still being reliable, streetable, and relatively competitive on the track. Definitely keeping the engine stock as long as possible, but I will need a new clutch and transmission soon, I can't believe they have lasted this long.
Eventually I will probably get a lighter, dedicated track car at which point the Boss will go back to mostly racking up miles in the mountains and on sunset cruises.
