I'm going to have to make sure to get my photo taken with the 1989 Mazda RX7 Turbo II. I just about died and went to heaven when I saw that was on the list of cars for this year. My friend is most likely going to get upset when I'm not going to want to leave the car show room *is a sucker for a hot car*


Talking about the FC, if you want one that bad... I saw a white one with a black bumper, and I'm assuming it's turbo cause I think the turbo models have the hood scoop. That's for sale (I'M ASSUMING!) in the North Side of Chicago... Cause I was with one of my buddies one night, and saw that FC. And I was like.. why is that FC behind that fence with a bunch of other cars... I wonder if it's for sale..???

If you can find out if thats for sale and get me the number I would DRIVE from Milwaukee to Chicago to try and buy it. My boyfriend loves that car more then I do, and he curently is car-less (his Cabreo's tranny just up and died...twice..in one year...he had to junk it).

The one that Allen is talking about.. I'm assuming it's a Silver R34??? Cause I keep on seeing it by Sound Performence everytime I go there to drop off parts....

I gotta talk with my photographer buddy since his the one who was driving me at the time when I saw it...... why not do a car.com search for it or something???

I will have to when I get home...I'm not even technically supposed to be on the ACEn forums...but I work 3:30 to Midnight...and after 7 we only take lost or stolen card calls...so..it's DEAD and my DS is drained of battery.

Will it be possible to get a photo of you with your car? I know it seems like a stupid question, but I thought I would ask in case you would be out and about around the con.

And I'll do something WTFish at the same time.. LOL!.. no, it's not drifting... I can't do anything illegal cause of my job.. etc... I wish I have a Hard Gay costume to make it EXTREMELY WTF!!!??

If you mean HARD GAY as in flaming looking, just hit up boys town around your area. I go there with my Chicago friends when I visit 9there is a dinner with a feta omelet to die for..only place I'll eat Feta). Believe me...they would have something for you. That or thrash about a good will for a bit, you might find something awesome.

And I will be there Thursday...my driver would have it no other way. She already has our rooms booked at the Hyat. I'm hoping to get her out of bed early so we can get good parking and just wait for check in. I'll have to keep my camera ready an an eye out for ya.

I'm talking about Razor Ramon Hard Gay (if you seriously don't know what I'm talking about... LOOK it up on wiki or youtube!).... I ain't going to boys town alone... I need female protection if I want to pull it off!!!... But I'm thinking of getting there around 5:15pmish at the time... (AND I HOPE my car is 1/4? empty at the time.... errr Allen, is it 1/4 or is it 1/8 now?? Cause I heard for Hot Import Nights this year... it's 1/8 empty...)

I'm totally looking forward to this!

My mom and I were joking about entering our car, since we just got it repainted and damn does it look gorgeous! ;) Unfortunately I'm the one with a car in my room (my roomies are flying in) so I need my car all weekend. But maybe next year....

1994 Nissan Sentra XE completely bone stock...mostly original parts in fact (y'know we've replaced the alternator and the battery and the brakes and a headlight...that's about it :D )
