Decided to turn the clock waaaaaaay back and see what the first of the 40,000 messages in my Gmail inbox were. Turns out that one of the first e-mails (in 2004, invite-only Gmail, wo0t!) was someone sending me pics of my S13 from a Drift Day in early 2004.
Seeing how I don't have FB (and Google+ is worthless, and this would be embarrasing on LinkedIn), I have decided to share with TCL.
I honestly didn't remember it having this many friggin' stickers :
The stance kids of today can suck it and get off my lawn! Crooked stickers, mis-matched panels, +0 offset, camber and stupid stuff hanging off the tow hook more than 8 years ago .
And who could forget this gem from several years earlier (everyone who wasn't a member in 2002, that's who!):
Enough sharing, I feel old...

Especially if it came out of several Krylon cans ranging from beige to gold at 2am in a dimly lit garage.
You failed to note the rare-because-it's-not-round Silvia trunk lock badge!
You made me curious, the 2nd email in my gmail inbox is from 2/28/08, from my brother:
"This is the truck i am learning to drive. It is armour plated and it weighs 23 tons, designed to withstand anti tank mines- u use the boom on it to pick up roadside bombs. Its called the buffalo"

I don't work for the company or anything, but there's a nifty app in the Mac app store that digs through your email address and sucks out all the photos. If you're an internet geezer like myself you'll likely find a ton of photos you forgot about (and some you wish never existed to begin with).

I've had my gmail since 04. My oldest email that wasn't from google was 10/19/04 and it was from Southeast Drift Association
The next oldest email is from an ex who was emailing me while I was in Japan.
I only have 1,462 messages in there, I did a mass cleanout a few years back
Tennessee, Tennessee, ain't no place I'd rather be..
I remember seeing photos of Vad's rice rocket on vortex (no TCL back then) and thinking to myself that I would never want to meet this loser... I changed my mind later when I found out he had a Mercury Tracer. That's hardcore.
