Ok, so, my gas tank is rusty and leaks, and one of the straps broke. So i was looking for new straps and a good tank and couldn't find anything for less then $140.

Well, i got this from a friend for $20.

Well, the Neon isn't going to be running as soon as i thought. My buddy that was going to fab up the trunk floor for me had some issues today. His car got torched, and his hand has like 2nd and 3rd degree burns i guess. So unless i find someone else that can cut and weld for me without costing a shit load, it's going to be down a little longer.

Yeah, we're going to fix his car. He got it put out before it got serious. It was only the back passenger corner. But shit is still messed up.

A little body roll..
Those Pontiac wheels look lower and wider, they might do you better on gripping then your R/Ts would,

you have a chunk missing behind the passengers front wheel?

I miss playing in the SCCA
