Is it registered? Does it have tags? If so... I don't see the problem. I know of two cars registered here that still get driven that are not what one would necessarily define as legal for street use

I think it's more the case of gramps needing to wear a hamlet in his car considering he's got a bunch of scaffolding in it

Then of course he'd be "that guy"

Yeah I could imagine! When I lived down here I drove like a grandma because the roads were so bad. I bought a little 94 Toyota Celica for $500 and made that my daily driver. I've put about 1k into it with new dampers, clutch, some bushings, and some other misc things. It's been averaging about 33mpg and I don't car as much when someone door dings it or when RTD takes a mirror off. It's a beater though lol.

edit: You know what's even worse than the downtown!? Santa fe! The segmented concrete is terrible!!!!

Great purchase.....I need to do that.

Oh no doubt! I just took Santa Fe twice this week and I thought something was going wrong with my car.

How did the springs settle? I think when we rolled fenders at Fern's they were pretty much done settling right?

We all need some more pics on a sunny day rather than the rainy day we had for the last shoot.

The front springs settled perfectly. However, the rear springs never got any lower - which I do not like. I am considering something else for the rear, like H&R race.

Happy April fools day from the other side of the world. I figured it was appropriate since a lot of us that post in here are fools lol....

Figured I'd put some pics up of my morning commute today lol.. 10 km/h gotta love a traffic jam in the morning





More news.. My appointment to get my visa renewed should be some time next week. So if all goes well, I'll see you guys around the 19th

Also welcome to all the new guys

The rig is from automotiverigs.com
Everything else was bought separately (clamps, suction cups, magic arm).

Do the rear springs have a perch? You could always pull those out and see how that does.

Azzy the commute looks like a blast... How long is your commute?
