Im Reiss. This is my car

Day 1- The Bro-dozer
Bought he off craigslist for 4750 in perfect running condition. They guy couldnt get it to pass smog...It had a catless downpipe (Pays to know about your car) Anyways, here she is.

She already had:
-Front mount
-Flat plate catless down pipe and 3" exhaust
-ghetto intake
-catless up pipe
and I think that was it engine wise. everything else was stock except for a boost gauge and the radio.

I wanted to show her off to my friends at a little meet we had started but she was missing something. After a quick trip to my neighbors house I buttoned her up and now she was ready. BAAM! PINK BIKE MOTHER F**KERS!

Wanted to get rid of the 4x4 action so I picked up a set of Tien S-tech lowering springs. After all the crap that people had to say I will be the first to say that they were great springs. Ride was great, didnt max out my shocks, and they made the car look awesome.

After:


That was a horrible before and after but if you look close enough you can see a difference.

This ghetto stickerness of couse led to more ghettoness. I trade head lights with a buddy and tried to moddify them. Well I ended up breaking the head ligh and was driving with only one head light. Also took the bike rack off as I havent had a bike since I was 10.

But then I got ahold of a slightly moddified bugeye sedan and went to town swapping parts over from the wagon. (I bought working stock parts, installed them on the sedan, and sold it)

Traded the STi scoop for an RS hood and now the Schwagon was finally looking like something.

And what happens when you keep something long enough for it to brake? It not only breaks, but at the worst possible time. I was turning left at a red light, shifted to second, and my tranny blew up. Broken phase initiated. Thankfully I knew someone that had done an STi swap and had an extra tranny.

Once she was back up and running I was craving some more low and bought some Megan race coil overs. They were on a chicks car and looked brand spankin new when I got them.

Never had coils before so I was messing around. This one was too hot, this one was cold, this one was just Herra frush enough(just kiding).

I rod my bike to a family reunion (Step dads family and my moms family) and I was one of the first ones there. When I was about to leave I walked outside and this was parked next to my bike. Subie family FTW.

In one of my stints where I actually convinced myself to sell my car I ended up trading my rims and flaps to a NASIOC tatto artist for stockies and tattoo work. I was very please with the deal and I was very please with how the tats turned out.

I got board and always wanted to paint my bumper in the GTR/EVO style so I tried my hand at it. Turned out pretty good I think.

Yeah. It had a tune when I bought it. I have a built ej255 short block with JE forged pistons, STi rods, and a few other tid bits just waiting to be finished. Ive been building up parts for it and ultimately plan on buying a bug eye with a blown engine, taking out the engine and using it for the wiring harness and a few other spare parts, taking my functioning wagon engine and dropping it in the other bug eye, sell that one and use it to refund some of the engine build and then drop my new built block with a bunch of other parts in my wagon and get it all tuned at once.
