My Sonic Yellow Bugeye……

Purchased back in late of 2005 it was stock for quite sometime. January of 2007 I went on a short 3 month deployment to japan and that’s when I started buying parts. I picked up some exterior mods( jdm roof vent, jdm grill and fog covers) and then slowly did some bolt on stuff..just intake..full exhaust Cobb AP v1.

My car started getting most of its parts that you see today until I left for Iraq from January 2008 till August 2008. and ever since then, I have slowly added more and more and more to it…

Up until recently the car was running great and then about 3 months ago I spun a rod bearing and out came the motor and transmission. The car currently it sitting at a friends shop awaiting its turn to get a full build with all the goodies…

The reason i bought this car was because of potential. Plus having a rare color helped me decide on my bugeye. I wanted something that stuck out and from the moment i bought it, i knew i wanted to make it into a show and go car. i didnt know much about auto-x or road racing when i bought it..i currently do none of that..i enjoy a nice street car to get me around town and also turn heads.
