New to the forum, love the magazine and I struggle to find legit forums now a days when cars have become such an instagram trend for likes. Love the content on this board and the builds that take place. With that said I daily drive an 2018 elantra lol, and my project is a 91 Honda Beat I recently imported. Past cars I have owned; 91 Probe GT Turbo, NC3 MX-5 Club, Subaru SVX that I did a 6spd swap on, S4 Turbo II RX7, 92 MX3 RS with BP swap, and an 82 Supra. I work on imports in my free time and try to develop small batch parts for niche cars. I also run a company Called Shogun Motorsports that makes frame protection for street bikes.

Always been a JDM and "Sport Compact Car" fan, but decided to try something new this year.  '21 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack 6spd, no options.  This is the second/weekend/fun car so current plans are to do a couple HPDE's before years end and go from there.  It does carry its weight around and the local tire shop is going to be my best friend, but want to take it out a couple times on track to have fun in a safe environment.  Definitely too much power to enjoy during daily driving if you want to keep your license intact lol.

Hey! My name is Kay and I am also new to this forum. During my short history of staying here, I have had a couple of curious situations with account activation. For some reason, a couple of days ago they blocked me for no reason and deleted my messages. I hope everything will be fine this time. Not so long ago I got carried away with the modernization of cars, so I will absorb information on this forum to think over my projects.

Hi! My name is TJ and I am one of the managers for a race shop in Texas. I always enjoy reading articles from GRM so I figured I might jump in and share some of our cool shop builds that we have going on or my own personal projects and see what the community thinks!

Hi, Mike from Ohio.  I have been a GRM subscriber since the 90S, I started reading the Forum during Covid and I got sucked into hill climbing, old cars, the challenge and especially the Triangle of Bad Decisions.

Thank you all for the entertainment. I honestly don't remember what I used to do in my spare time.

Hi there, Robert from Ohio. Just joined this forum a few days ago and found many many interesting topics with helpful comments... very very helpful. I learned a lot from everybody here. Just read some old topic and wanted to jump right away to discuss but it's no longer active... a bit regret not to join this forum earlier. Anyway, nice to meet you all!

Hi!

Bernhard from Austria.

I finally registered, after reading for quite some time (years??).

I'm not that mechanically inclined, but still like to do little stuff to my cars and bikes.

Hey, you forgot to mention that you were great at finding parts and transmissions for obscure vehicles in Europe laugh

I thought you might need a little help, finding the local craigslist alternatives. It's funny that in every country a different website seems to be the favourite place to sell things.

New to the forum and thinking about buying a car for some autocross and track time. I have been kicking the idea around for years but I have worked on cars since my teens. I have had countless cars over the years and several I regret selling as we all do at some point. My only fun car right now is  2005 T-Bird that is getting a Borla Exhaust and K&N Intake with the SCT tune. It's not a racer but fun to put the top down and cruise.  I live near Mid-Ohio and just took a day One of of the HPDE classes and I'm hooked.

Hello, my name is Conner, and I'm a projectoholic, Hello Conner. I'm brand spanking new here after reading many a thread through and through and seeing that this is a community I want to associate with, participate in and get to know better, in short, these are my people. I live a 10 minute walk from my local quarter mile drag strip in rural Quebec, Canada (yes The Great White North speaketh) At 25 years of age I've already owned more cars then I can count on both hands, and most toes, and currently have 5 cars sitting on property patiently awaiting their destiny (with another one potentially on the way if the seller can come up with paperwork) I hope to start build threads soon, a push from you bunch I'm sure will get the ball rolling. A taste of whats waiting in the wings include a 2006 Chevy Aveo5 potential autox/Civic chaser. 2007 Pooparu Legacy GT, bought this car in immaculate condition and within a month blew both rear break lines, ate a boulder to the windshield and was run off the road by a semi and met the guard rail, 'frame off' restomod turn 1/4 mile terror. 1953 Chevy BelAir, full frame off restomod, highway cruiser/show pony. And a couple other surprises I'll divulge in time. Thanks for having me and i hope to do great things together.

Thanks

My name is Brad, I am new to the forum, but have been reading it for about a year.  I have been reading GRM for about 15 years, I have attended the challenge one year, but have not participated.  I recently moved from the Savannah GA area to the Raleigh NC area and now have more room to work on my many car & bike projects, especially my 74 260z that has been uncompleted to long to mention.

I will have plenty of questions on getting my home shop setup as I moved from a small 2 car garage that 6 motor cycles and the z car had to share to a 30 x 40 air conditioned shop.

I repair BMW's for a living so I should be able to help answer questions anyone has on those.

Hi, new member James jumping in.  Been into motorsports and building road/race cars since the 80's, when I built a GTD40 as my daily driver.  I did 60,000miles in 2 years and had a lot of fun driving around many European circuits (I'm English, but have been in US since 1998).  My home circuit was Goodwood and I still miss it.   

Let's see how photos work here..

ok, that worked!  Next was a "project" to go faster than the '40, but after moving countries it went into "long term project mode" and during the 08 recession ended up selling for pennies on the dollar.  Common story I'm sure.  Shame because it had dry dumped 383, air jacks, AP brakes..

Big gap then, until 3 years ago when I bought Factory Five 33 kit and built that as a rough-n-ready daily driver to use at AutoX and circuit use.. probably Harris Hill nr Austin is my most likely venue. 

Now I'm back having a lot of fun again! I'm still very much a novice at autox (3 events), and my circuit experience is all *cough* 30 years ago..  but I'm having fun making the '33 go faster.  Experimenting with new alignments every weekend, stiffer springs, added sway bar, wider wheels/tires coming (this photo is the old 285/35r19 GT500 wheels, the new 355's are coming). Making changes slowly (and yes, one at a time) but will never be finished. 

Looking forward to learning from everyone here..

Newbie here.

Been enjoying the forums and articles.  On my bucket list has been a car for fun weekends along with some track days and time with an instructor so I know what I'm doing.  Worst time in history to be purchasing a vehicle, so it might be a minute before committing. But in the meantime, I'll be absorbing GRM for ideas and knowledge. Look forward to chatting with you all. 

Cheers!

I bop into this thread every now and then to see who is new to the hive.  Lots of new exciting folks coming on. 

This is an amazing community, if you haven't experienced it to the fullest yet.  I don't think I would have had HALF as successful a time on my last build without this community.  Cheers and welcome aboard!
