dub1.3's Comments:

This is my little baby. Reliable, cheap to run & quite a little head turner. She's as low as she can go & eagerly awaiting the the next level of mods. That will NOT inc bigger wheels. It will however inc a turbo transplant. Either the std hi-flowed unit with i/c from my mx-6 or a B6T conversion(becoming more a reality with conversion kits available for next to nothing). These are an underated little machine which will eventually kick commodoor arse just like my 6 does now.
