I do to but I've grown up a lot and don't beat on my cars. I real particular on maintenance now too. I have a hard time wrapping my head around buying a heavily modded car unless I knew the person who owned it to know how it was driven. With the above I would assume its been ridden hard and put away wet on occasions. What do u think?
i wouldn't call those cars posted above "heavily" modded. As far as buying a built motor, it all depends on who built it. If a shop did the work and has all the paper work for it, no prob. If the guy built it in his garage.... I would stay away.

since he just chimmed in and seems like not many ppl know him. This was Nick Reids car.. I would call this "heavily modded"

Only pic i have but still one of my fav subies around
