    Haha you guys are nuts! Yes, I'm planning on wheels in the future. They are just so damn expensive

    Thank you Cake! Last weekend while changing the downpipe a stud snapped. This is actually a common problem but my brother was able to get it out in a few minutes. Also, in the process of removing some intake stuff to reach the top bolts of the downpipe a few rubber hoses that turned solid from all of the heat cracked and broke so I'm waiting for those to come in. We also didn't have time to finish so it will be finished this weekend. Thankfully the garage is air conditioned which is nice since it has been 90*+ here lately

    My "new" Car

    I changed the tires and got an alignment last weekend. Going to get the front bumper repainted and a few small dings fixed with PDR. This weekend I'll be changing all of the fluids, spark plugs and wires, cooler thermostat. The guy I bought it from had the oil and spark plugs changed recently and I have records but I want to change the weight and brand and know it is done and I can continue on my own maintenance schedule. I'll be ordering a ceramic coated downpipe soon to get rid of the pre-cat that gets ridiculously hot and causes problems in the long run. I want to make it a "reliable " touring car in time. I don't plan on tracking it. My goal is to upgrade or replace parts that are in contact to what the upgrade is. For example, when I switch to coilovers, I want to upgrade the tie rods, ball joints, sway bars, sway bar links, etc. just so everything is sound. I know it will cost more but I think it would be beneficial in the long term. Whatever doesn't need to be replaced can be thoroughly cleaned and repainted if necessary. My brother recently bought a house that has a two car shop with a lift on the property so that will be very helpful. Sorry for the rambling. I'll post updates as I go along if that is something you guys would want to see

    My "new" Car

    I had one about 15 years ago and always wanted another one. I was looking to get another one and I started my search. I finally found one that I wanted but it was in Washington, the other side of the country for me. Luckily, it was only 15 minutes away from Cats Exotics. Big thank you to Roy and Kevin for brokering the deal for me and looking over the car before I bought it. They also set up transport for me. 1994 Mazda RX-7 with 74k miles on it. Needs some TLC but it is in great condition and has MANY new factory parts, it is also 100% stock. 46870174_894066284489933_6267561747895973321_n.mp4
  7. I'm here, just not much to post about or comment on. Same thing with other forums I would visit. Just not enough content. Either the most active people are not "in the game" anymore or have moved to different platforms like FB or IG which are terrible for information.
  8. Thanks Dave! If it works out I'm going to have Roy broker it for me
  9. Specifically Kirkland, WA. I’m looking to possibly purchase a car from a private seller and I have never done this before. I want to make sure the car is real, runs, drives, etc. Also, how can I ensure the guy won’t take my money and disappear? I was told to use a private escrow company by someone. Can I just use a title company or are there companies that specifically do this for cars? Unfortunately, due to my work schedule lately flying out there is not an option.
  10. I wonder how much the hood tie-down option is and if you can get them in other colors
  11. I have never bid on anything and I do not plan to anytime soon. It is a good time waster to just browse through and look at some cool cars though. I don't bother to look at the comments because I have noticed the same. If I want to see comments of people talking nonsense and nothing of value, I'll go on Facebook
  12. I thought most modern cars were already "pre-broken in" because most people won't follow direction
  13. Honestly, at this point, nothing would f****** surprise me
  14. One thing to tell you from the retail mortgage industry, some lenders are putting out stricter guidelines and I just saw one HUGE lender/servicer is completely stopping all new loan applications as of today. Usually when one does something the rest will follow...
