New cars. JDM life.

I've owned mostly Ford and Chevy cars but now have a Subaru and a Nissan, lol.

Always like the Subaru wagons.  Not a fan of the 2.5 head gaskets though.

I farted around with a Lexus for a few years.

When the (now ex) wife found herself in another's arms, the car went, too.

I miss neither of them. ;)

Luckily the JDM Legacy GT got the EJ20X that isn't as pr0ne to HG failures.  It's fairly quick too.  The Nissan is pretty nice but those seats are definitely made for skinny people, lol.  They are a bit tight on me.

I sold the Legacy and picked up this Nissan Fuga 450GT to drive around for a while.
