Caffeine's Comments:

My first glimpse of a 1st gen MX-6 was a shiny red LX I saw for sale and later purchased. I fell in love with the car and owned it for two years before I sold it to buy a GT. The GT needed a lot more work than the LX, however it came with a new low milage motor which gave me a good start to build from. The car is a work in progress, but has been reliable for the most part and a really fun car to call your daily driver.

Performance Comments:

My best quarter mile so far was in Sept. '03, when I pulled a 15.1 @ 96 mph or so. Unfortunately that was with a toasted clutch, bad tranny, totally shot suspension/motor mounts. The tranny and clutch was recently replaced and hopefully I will get a nice suspension set up and poly mounts so I can finally get the power to the ground.

Here's a shot from this past Fall. (As you can see by the foliage)

Here's an evil looking black and white shot.

Before the GT I owned an automatic '91 MX-6 LX
