/shivers. I had an svx back in the day with mucho work in that got the same or worse. I really wanted to get the wife into an evo or rex but I can't in good faith do it with 4.00 91 octane comin out of the pumps over here. although... nothing is hotter then seeing a slammed evo and watching a bangin chick get out of it...

I always had respect for the protoge's back in the day for the fact that they had potential and were fairly original looking... yours was pretty dang nice. I look forward to what you do with the mini.
