      Most of you probably won't remember me, but I used to be a regular a few years back. This is my car:












      And here she sits, aired out for the last time, before I started removing the bags yesterday...



      ...sadly, she was totaled a few days ago with my brother driving (not a scratch on him, thank God). So it's time to move on. I'm hoping to pick up a silverstone mark IV GTI tomorrow and start carving out a new notch.

      these cars have a turbocharged engine.....stage 2 your almost 300hp. But you guys lower your cars to look like ricers.

      Yeah, he's fine... safe cars. Accident wasn't his fault either. What was your account back then?

      Yup, damn shame, but I'm so happy the insurance co. totaled it because I did not want it back now. I'm very excited to get back into the scene. Didn't end up getting that silverstone; dude wanted 10k. But I should have a reflex gti 1.8t by next week.

      No way dude; I'm in Asheville... at least for 3-4 more weeks. I'll be moving to ATL at the end of August. I've been out of the scene for a while cuz I was away at school, so I kinda lost touch with all the Asheville people. There are a few around though.

      Thanks for all the kind words guys.
