The following are convenient links to the latest mods so frequent visitors can quicky review the latest updates to the car. Unfortunately, most of the changes were done before I made this web page change. If the date is a link, you can go to the page describing the install/parts.

03/08/2014 - I started my next big project.

03/06/2014 - Cervini's FINALLY came through and released the ram air duct for my hood. Ordered it, but there's a 2-week back-order on it. Five weeks later, I received it in the mail. Irony - I may not be able to uise it.
