    i can't get my license until Dec 30 (2002), because i'm an idiot and i got my permitt late. we have a new law in arizona that states you have to have your permitt for at least 5 months before you can get your license when your 16, if you were born in the year 1986 or earlier.

    but by that time i should have around anywhere from 2k-3k saved up. currently i have $1100 saved up but that goes every two weeks (pay day). i'm not exactly sure what i'm going to get but maybe now is a good time to go look online. just to get an idea. and my dad said he is going to loan (not give!*) me around a grand to help me get a little better car so that's going to be cool.

    * = i wouldn't want to take the money

    wow, i sure can turn a short comment into a long story...

    Anyone with any knowledge or experience with a Rotory motor should appreciate my car.

    1987 Mazda RX-7 with a Superhcarged Twin Rotor 13-B Rotory(Wankle). Cal induction system and viper style carbon fiber hood. Dynamat racing exhuast with straight pipes. Custom NOS system with dual 5 pound tanks which are concealed behind my speaker box, which houses two 400 10 inch Kicker Comps running on a XPLODE! 760 watt x2 Amp. Pioneer head unit and 12 disc cd changer.

    Cherry red with custom white tibals for paint, flame sterring wheel, NITRO style rims with goodwrench racing tires wrapped on em.

    B&M Ratchet shifter to a B&M 400 racing transmission outfitted with a shift assister kit planting my limited slip rear nicely to the ground.

    Suicide style side mirrors, exotic wood dash, FnF rear spoiler, hidden hitch(for my quad trailer), and a 2 inch drop kit with Air bag suspension.

    Runs 10.1 seconds in a quarter mile with a top end of 197mph (with a shot from NOS). The quarter mile is without nos and prior to the drop/spoiler i haven't checked again yet.

    Please don't steal it i'm still paying my dad for the 15,000.00 us dollar loan to build it lol.
