Finally bought a track car...

After months and months of searching...I finally bought a track car. I don't know who is happier...me or my wife (the entire car-searching ordeal was starting to get on her nerves!). I want to thank Bryan Shugg for all his advice/expertise (and for driving/checking this car out before I bought it).

Looks like I need to send in my SCMC registration............

Congrats, Dude!
Judging by the rims, hood, and spoiler, I'm guessing it's a 98?
Any mods?

I still got a 96 Mystic for sale....

Congrats, Jason. Definitely a good move in getting one just for the track. If you start tearing into, let me know and I'll help you out.

Thanks all!!

Yeah...it's a 1998. The only mods it had were a K&N and some Eibach's. I'm going to add some SS brake lines next week and flush the brake system...I'll run it at VIR the way it sits. Then it's time to buy some 6-point harnesses and install the Autopower cage that's sitting in the garage.

This year will not see many mods to the car. I'm spending my money on TRACK TIME!! Can't get enough of that

If there is anyone that deserves a track car, it's Jason. Man did he wait a long time for it!!!! How many cars did you look at? (to say nothing of the number of car you showed me!!)

I appreciate the compliment, Jay, but I think you know more about a good car than I do. My expertise consists of: "Does it go fast? Good. Does it stop well. Even better."

Enjoy it bud. You deserve it.
