Welcome, Chesterfield. Glad you finally joined us here.

Another newbie. My name is James but everyone calls me Tugger. My current main project is a 1980 RX-7, which I've added in the gallery here. When I'm not working making junkmail, I enjoy my new found love of autocrossing and going to car shows. I am a subscriber to GRM magazine but never came on the forums until now. Aside from my RX-7 I also have a 1966 Plymouth Belvedere 4 door. It's a long term (eternal?) project that I hope to eventually drop on a modern Charger chassis.

Justjim here, been a GRMer in heart and soul my whole life, lurker for a few months and today I made my first post. I own a 96 Bronco that I use for short family trips, rock crawling, and all my outdoor activities (there are many), and i daily an overweight 4 door hatchback Lotus Elise, commonly known as a Toyota Matrix XRS with the 2zz-ge and 6 speed manual. Thanks for having me!

VVTLi 1.8l weedwacker supreme. It hits Lift at 6200 rpm (Toyota's version of VTEC [Yo]) and redline is 8500. Sounds all wrong past about 7 grand but after getting used to it, it's lots o fun. Pulls a utility trailer with a ZTR on it no problem, goes like stink in the twisties and gets mid 30s on the highway with plenty of room for my family. I even put 1100 pounds of cargo in it with room and suspension travel to spare.

I'm new to the forum, but have been a subscriber for several years. I own a track-prepped but still streetable 1992 Porsche 968 that I take to track sessions once or twice a week at the local track here in Austin, TX, called Driveway Austin. At the moment, I'm trying to improve the car's grip (tired of getting spanked on the short, highly technical version of the track by an admittedly very well-prepped Miata that cost less than my car's shocks) by finding some wider wheels than my current 17 x 9's, but Porsche's goofy "unique" bolt pattern and hubs that stick out far enough to require a larger-than-typical offset has made the search very challenging. I will post a thread looking for some guidance on this topic soon, so I'm looking forward to any tips the collective wisdom of this community could provide.

My name is Gene. Have been a forum lurker for quite some time now. I own a 2003.5 Mazdaspeed Protege. It's a pretty uncommon car with a limited production of 4500 only made in the year 2003. Looking forward to getting to know everyone here! Thanks!

Joined last week after reading Mazdeuce's epic R63 thread. I spent a few years racing, predominately ricy AW11 MR2's, MR2 Roadster/Spyder, Mitsubishi Cyborg and Nissan Pulsar GTiR. Still hold my race license, but I now also Clerk race meetings (race director) and occasional forays in Safety Car driving. Current weekend car is a 1995 C36 AMG. Went to Le Mans this year in it, it has been round a few race circuits and done Safety Car duties too. We have had a varied spread of US cars over the years; 69 Cougar 390 convertible, 69 Cougar Eliminator, 67, 68 & 84 Mustangs, 79 Corvette, 89 Wagoneer Limited, 81 Checker cab, 99 P71 Crown Vic, 77 Trans Am & 57 Plymouth Fury and some RV's; 81 Minnie Winnie, 89 E350 Travelcraft & 2000 E450 Fleetwood Tioga. Great forum, slowly working my way through the threads. Notwen

Pretty sure this is the beginning of an AA meeting (Automotive Anonymous). That being said:

Hi all, I'm Jon. I was bitten by the car bug when my dad and I decided to build up a 1961 MGA Coupe. Only took us 8 years but the results are good. I love that car and probably will never sell it. I have a thing of oddball cars that just don't make sense but its fun for me to see the look on peoples face. I'm currently in Korea for a short bit of time then I'll be coming back. Before I leave here I'm taking a motorcycle trip around the country (think Indiana sized) and I'm hoping to road trip back from Seattle, WA to Richmond VA once I get back.

That being said since I'm far and away I found this lovely Gem of British engineering near Richmond but I won't have time to go take a look or buy it, so if anyone wants to do me a solid and go take a look for me that is around that area I wouldn't mind

Hey guys,  I'm a newish member, I was looking into doing some autocross when I stumbled across this forum.  I've mostly been lurking, but I decided to go ahead and post in the new member thread.  I drive a 2009 BMW 328xi wagon with, of course, a 6 speed manual.  

Sorry for the not so pro photography, this angle kinda makes the car look ungainly.  Ah well.  It still drives awesome.

My Friends from the Georgia Fiero Club were trying to Contact SVreX to get a number for a car for sale but told me they have a 24 Hr. wait to Post ???? Is this a Vetting process or something needing correcting?. By the time ya'll see this (being sunday night) the time may have passed But, What?

Gtx: its to reduce the spammers, as not many people here are interested in black market visas, mail order brides, or cheap prescriptionless narcotics through the mail. Nothing personal, but really shuts down the automated programs.

Cheap Prescriptionless Narcotics,   darn...  I'm OK with Co-Pay. can I do that with the HOT Latin Ladies and Sexy Russian Brides ads in My E-Mail?

Sorry I didn't see this sooner. Yes the 24 hour wait helps to keep the spam down. This was implemented about a year ago. If you contact me via pm I can remove the wait if needed.
