Thought I would update my thread since it's been a while since I've last posted up here at JDMST.

Well long story short, a lot of things have happened since 2007:

- sold my ek
- got engaged last Christmas eve
- bought a house with the fiancee

and last but not least went through a few rides. A short show and tell included below if you have time to burn:

Well after I sold my ek, tried to go car-less for a good 3 months before I realised that being a pedestrian was definitely no fun. So I bought myself a 1993 eg si:

After being defected for 3 different things on the car the 2ND NIGHT I drove it (and taking it as a sign of bad luck) I sold the car a week later. Mind you, i bought the car on a Saturday afternoon, was pulled over for an 'RBT' on Sunday night on the way to dinner, and was defected for a non-working horn, exhaust, and exposed pod filter. Hard as I tried to convince the officer that I didn't have enough time to fix these things, i was fined quite heavily and pretty much decided then and there to sell this eg and get another. As a result I got this:

It came complete with a set of 17 inch chrome wheels and a shot left shock.

First mods were to remove the chrome rims adn install a set of koni yellows, a front lip and some ambers:

Then I realised my mistake and decided to install 15 inch wheels and replaced the 17s:

And finally how the car stands now - spoon style spoiler and one foglight installed...just need to find the time to install the other. :P

When money permits (after the wedding) I'll hopefully be doing some form of engine conversion but for the time being, it will be in its relatively stock form. Hope to catch up with some of the guys I used to usually see in the meets during this month's eomm. Til then take care everybody. :)

Hey Jonno, long time no speak dude! Hope everything is well on ur side of the world. Yeah I've been out in the wilderness since I sold my ek, not being able to go to car meets since I had no transport. And then life got a hold of me by the nads and wouldn't let go. Hopefully I can make it to this month's meet if I'm not too busy doing renos on the house. Definitely try to catch up with you, will and the other guys if you all still remember me lol!

Hahaha, I actually dig white and black more, but for some reason I end up getting red! But after owning 3 red cars, it has sort of grown on me. :) Thanks for the compliment as well, i try to keep my cars as clean as possible and like subtlety more than anything else. That's part of the reason why i sold the red and black eg...it stood out too much.
