In order....

POS 1978 Ford LTD with (RWD 351 V-8) This was in 1990 BTW first car and cost me $200.00
Not so POS 1984 Mercury Grand Marquis (RWD 302 V-8)
1994 Eclipse (FWD non-turbo 1.8)
1996 3000 GT VR-4 (AWD turbo 3.0)
1992 Galant VR-4 (AWD turbo 2.0)
1997 Eclipse spyder (FWD non turbo 2.4)
2003 Evolution (AWD turbo 2.0)

I got the EVO because I loved the "sleeper" effect of my Galant VR-4 and wanted to have that again. I have removed the giant CF wing and switched to JDM EVO7 red tail lights to make the car more of a sleeper.

I came from a 97 :dsm: Eclipse GS-T that i love and miss very much. :cry: It was modded and tuned just right. I had that thing pulling like a raped ape. Man I love that car! I had to sell it though to make room for the Evo, but for a period of two months I was in :dsm: heaven driving both every other day. :D

Bought my first car in '99 when I moved out here, a '99 Civic sedan (Value Package) :yawn:. Paid it off 2 years later, decided I was bored with it, sold it and bought an '01 Eclipse GT. I was pretty happy with that until I started autocrossing when I found out that the 3G Eclipse, well, sucked. Luckily around the same time the Evo had hit the market and I traded in the Eclipse. Don't think I'll ever sell my Evo though; eventually it will end its days as a track-only or rally car; I'm already starting to think as to what I'll want as a daily driver a couple years from now.

I'm driving both an Evo MR and a 2002 WRX (mild mods). My other cars have included a European Ford Escort Turbo (while in the military), '86 Acura Integra, '81 Datsun 280Z, and various other cars not worth mentioning.

Before my EVO I drove..............





































An EVO! :D

I think the upgrade from 03 EVO to 05 EVO RS was well worth the change :)
