Default Re: Gallery: Your Car

I agree that computer modding is so much cheaper than cars. I've pretty much had it with my car. Well, I'm still looking for a nice CF hood for it. I know there is one available for the 03 Corolla, but I hate that plain ordinary style. I'm in no hurry to get or even care if I ever get it or not. There are things I can still do to it like adding water injection, DC Header, new computer management controller, even an LSD would be nice too. But as long as I don't stomp on the gas too hard, the wheels won't spin. The extra torque from the supercharger is extra nice. If I had water injection, then I could have an intake on there. I just can't put an intake on now without the car running into some kind of problem.

What do you mean? Ordinary style? You mean, just a stock looking hood thats CF? Because you definetly want something with a scoop

But... I was wondering if anyone had any advice..
http://computervitals.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4947
sadly i am just getting back to you and i still don't have it, i did go 2 see it though and the car is in good shape. The paint is faded, no hubcaps, interior in really good condition, needs 2 be cleaned up though, no rips or stains. One dent in the front left fender but i can get it out pretty easially i bet. I didn't check the milage though... it's an automatic sadly. once i get the car (hopefully THIS weekend) i am going 2 get some mcguires(spellings off) paint restoration or something to get the fading off. There's like 3 steps you do, first buff on the coarse stuff, then medium, and then fine. My teacher did car restoration and said it will make it look a whole lot better so i am going 2 try that. I'll let you guys know when i actually get it. The person i am buying it from just had her baby on tuesday and i am going 2 call on friday and ask her if she has decided on how much she wants for it. if she gives me a price we are going 2 buy it that same day (hopeing for friday) and pick it up.

thats awesome! i wish i had the money for that. but i got my escort!! yay me! it's a 1991 Ford Escort LX 4 door hatchback/sedan. it's in amazing shape 2. Really clean interior, no rips or tears, cracks in the dash board, barly any fading, just a little on the tops of the seats. The engine is amazingly clean as well, the body is in very good shape, only 1 dent in it on the front fender right above the wheel well. Tires and brakes are in good shape as well. The paint is faded but add some rubbing compound and polish to it and it looks almost new! no hubcaps sadly but i am going 2 get some. i baught some for 10 dollars from a discount store but all the locks on it broke in seconds of trying 2 put them on correctly so screw that :P i might buy some off ebay. The engine runs really good as well. it has a K&N intake on it, doesn't add much but it's better than stock :P it's got somewhere around 95 horsepower or so, stock is 88. (the 95 is my estimate) i think the car is in overall amazing shape and for $150 it can't get much better than that! and 3/4th tank of gas! :P here's a pic of before i started working on it:....well i would show a pic of i could find my camera!! >.<! o well i will look later i'm 2 lazy :P overall i am very happy.
