not really,
i wouldnt sell her for any amount of money, id swap her for an xy gt shaker.. ant one interested? haha and youd be a fool if you were. im a basic guy for 15, i like simple, i love old mototrs, easy to work on, no electrics, which is why new cars are pricks. old cars have style and value.. thats a bit off the topic haha.

i will turbo my car, it will happen, some people have opened my eyes to factors
1. insurance
2. experience
3. cost
4. age
and 5. i own an xf

haha

i love my car though, and if your opinion is "get a 4 cylinder" its too late, got a six already, and besides, trubo 4's are gonna kill my car anyday.

take your pintara, blubird, laser, etc....

the only 4 cylinder i would have.

an AE86, TX3, or a lancer

Im telling you, They dont! If you drop an EVO motor in them, then your onto somthing but even then, your limited to certain things and I would rather spend the 12g's on somthin else!

I would rather spend the 12g's on a flacon, and run some serious quater times! I am hoping that my turbo job will cost around the $8000 mark and get me into the 12's

so is driving around pssshht'ing just to sound cool. If your after a cruiser and not performance, pick yourself up a nice E-series V8 Fairmont/Fairlane or something with the money you were going to put towards the turbo.

"and i know ytour not trying to stop me" So why are you whinging?

Has it not clicked with you yet, that although what we are saying may appear to be the boring way through your p's, fact is, we have all been there ourselves, all made mistakes and all learnt some valuable lessons. Yes you will need to learn these lessons yourself too one day, its the only way most people learn. Better off learning these things in a car that isn't loved and cherished. "i'll take care of my car, im a good driver, i dont do silly things" all these are things said by most people when they get a license. Although you mean it now, when you have a couple of mates in the car, and you're due for some new tyres.... maybe had a few drinks and wanna rip a burnout or something... It just happens.

Seriously, in 5 years time i can just about garuntee that you will see the situation the way we see it ;)

It's nothing personal dude, we were all in your shoes too at one stage.
