I have recently been viciously debating the merits of keeping my FR-S stock (or at least street class legal).  Parts have been purchased.  Sleep has been lost.  Friendships have been strained while I, as usual, renege on my promises.

Paying monthly on a car that sits is not a new thing, but it isn’t particularly comfortable when no money is coming in. With spring comes employment opportunity. There […]
