since most of us probly started the tuning bug without a scion, lets see your previous cars!

here was my 1997 civic hatch, i really miss it:



















mods: first gen b16a engine and transmission, act 4 puck UN-sprung clutch, skunk2 stage 2 camshafts, skunk2 valve springs, skunk2 retainers, buddy club cam gears, skunk2 cat-back, 2.25in test pipe, jasma 4-1 header, sri, gsr brakes all around, gsr shifter, 99-00 si interior front seats, 99-00 si cluster, ground controls, spoon lower tie bar, ctr intake manifold, ctr front strut tower bar, ctr throttle body, msd ignition and launcher, password jdm duckbill, fiber images cf hood, painted cappuccino beige metallic, roof painted gloss black to flow with the cf wing and hood, buddy club 15x6.5 with falken azeni 205/50/15, hondata s200, tuned to 165whp.

and heres some info on it... lemme try and sum this up, hah.
was bought by my friend kyle from a guy named eddie in cali. when eddie had it it was rear ended by a damn suv, entire rear was replaced, rear passanger rubbed due to shitty repair. kyle then bought it, not knowing it was rear ended, it threw a cel's and ran like ass. i bought it from kyle, dumped about 1k into it and loved it like it was my own!

went from 140whp to 165whp due to me getting hondata and getting it tuned, fixed the cel, replaced the axles and it was perfect. i realllllly miss having 9000rpm's to play with on tap! was the funnest car i ever had. i sold it because or theft issues. i lived in an apartment at the time, and didnt have a garage for it. now that ive moved on up and just bought a house, i wish i still had it... BUT.. i still love my bB!!!

Here's some I've owned (I hardly hold on to cars for more than a year--longest so far was my 62 Coopers S--held it for 3 years). At 33 years of age, I've gone through more than I can remember!

Car that started it all for me:
BM 02


then..
84 GTI w/ 2 liter ABA swap


another Vdub..can't find pics of my other ones--a MK2 GTI w. G60 swap and here was my last..a VR6 prev. owned by Tim Tomas of Tomas Sport Tuning


A C43 (those were the days when working for tech payed the bills--LOL!)


A TT with KO4s and Reiger kit..and 5-zigen FNO1RCs (when they first came out!)


Minis throughout the years (always seem to not be able to live without one)...

this one was a rust bucket brought in from UK for 5K, sold to a software engineer for 15K..after restore and turbo engine!


this one sold to a Designworks USA designer (BMW design studio here in LA)

current work in progress..will be for sale soon.

then a bugeye wagon, vishnu stage II..damn fast ride, but waay to costly on gas. I sold it when gas went over 3 bux/gallon...I regret selling it to this guy who promised to take care of it, then 3 months later, I receive a letter from Burbank PD that it has over 2K in tickets/fines and has been abandoned!!


an EP3, future recipient of k20A swap
