saw an old friend today........

so i saw my eclipse today in oncoming traffic.

2:

it still has the stock front (2gB), but it has blitz side skirts and a blitz rear. it has a VIS CF Evo style hood. it has altezzas, not the decent black ones, the bright chrome and red ones. it now has the muffler with the dual fart tips that are angled upwards. i knew it was mine cause the lower front had the same 2 darker areas where i had applied the touch up from the previous owner to me, and they still have my rims and drop. couldnt see the driver, windows had 5% tint on them. giant banner that says "Powered by Mitsubishi", like "duh, as if chevy motors powered mitsubishis".

i almost shed a tear, then i remembered that i now drive a truly one-off car that nobody else will ever come close to making.



anyone else ever see their old cars?

yeah i found my old firebird for sale at a dealer down the street from my house...i was so tempted to buy ut, but after i went and saw it, i found that the previous owners left it sitting in their yard for almost 2 years and it just rusted away...the custom paint job was all cracked, needed a new transmission, and so many other things...made me want to cry cause i freakin loved that car

Re: saw an old friend today........

I saw my 92 honda accord (my first car) a few months ago. It was being driven on a spare, had 14" rims, and had one of the windows ductaped

It really was sad though... I liked that car, even though it was a 92 honda accord

I gave my Camaro to a guy in Texas. So I haven't seen it since I gave it away. It's had the 305 replaced with a built LT4. I'd really like to see it. The owner is in Iraq at the moment, though.

yeah the site i bought the side scoops from (Ironman customs) has their own version, but its cheaply done. its just the roush front like mine, with some ApC / pepboys fogs in the middle, the stripe is a vinyl, base color is mineral grey. the side exhaust is just a pipe routed there, not a cutout and tip like the roush kit and the GT500E's have. looks crappy.

what do you mean by funny rims?

Re: saw an old friend today........

lol i just went through the drive-thru at starbucks. the girl asked me if i "boosted" it from nicholas cage and jumped an ambulance. i was just like "omg, i love you".

ill be going back there tomorrow...........

oh and spec, im looking at rims like that, called "Cobra 340's", that are basically the knockoffs but better quality than the cheapo's, and a little more depth and detail to them. but im still digging my bullitts. i think some DD out back with the tri-star spinner center caps would look badass, since the rims i was looking at, dont come in a DD profile.

I haven't seen my old car since the day it was traded in....but...sometimes I miss the grand prix. Then I remember that I'm fresh out of hot glue to put the damn thing back together...
