MY 93 Hatchback LX



[ click to enlarge ]


I bought this car about a year after I got stationed at Pope AFB in NC. I didn't have a car at the time and my friend said it would be a fun car to own.(he owned a '90 notchback). So I bought it thinking I would be using it as a daily driver..that didn't last long. I have owned this car for a little over a year now and I have fallen in love with it. I bought the car with 83,000 miles and I currently have 96,000 miles on it now. So its got alot life let in it.The reason I purchased the car was to have a 2nd means of transportation other than my street bike. About a month or so after I bought the car I met a couple of mustang guys and they took me to the drag strip and got me to race my car....I was hooked.
So I sold my street bike(I still miss it) and started installing the go-fast parts. I have finally gotten to a point where I am content with what is done to the car.(this will not last very long) So for now I will be running the car as is until I save up enough money to start digging into the engine. It was a long process saving the money to buy the parts and then installing the parts on the car. I wanted to save as much money as possible so some of the parts are used or from ebay. I also installed all of the the parts myself along with some help from my friends. This saved me a bunch of money. So far I am having a blast drag racing and meeting new people that have the same interest in cars as me.
Let me know what you think of it so far. I would love to hear what you like and dislike.
