About “The Blown Banana”
Well this is the newest vehicle I have ever owned. I have been a car enthusiast for my entire life since i watched transformers cartoons when I was a kid.
Well now I do transform them. I help build and paint hot rods to honda's and do performance upgrades as well. I vowed to make this car my new every day driver and project.
The car came stock equipped with the G85 pkg. Thats Recaro racing seats, sound system, upgraded suspension that has been tweaked about 1in lower that stock, mild engine tuning. I bought it with the Injen cold air intake. Since then I had the bugs worked out of it. Cut the cat out and added straight pipe. New Maxxis tires taller and wider for handling. Tweaked the suspension, painted the headlights and added the Autobots emblem to the turn signals. Painted the rear taillights and side markers. Debadged the rear emblems. Installed a UV7I dvd entertainment system. Painted the interior trim peices the same color as the rims, along w/the dvd dash kit. Also installed a custom wire mesh grille in the front bumper and painted a ghosted SS in it.
A long time ago in a land not so far away in Nebraska, a guy got married and put his wife's car up for sale on E-bay. He had no idea what it was worth and what the S/R stood for on the trunk and doors so he took it to his CHEVY dealer to get it's trade-in value. He then used that trade-in value as his buy-it-now price on E-bay and a lucky high school Sr. drove away with his first car - a hardly used, extremely rare**, Ford ZX2 S/R
**Only 1,000 Yellow 2000 ZX2 S/R's made and out of that only around 180-200 with the CWQ3 (+5hp, CA illegal) computer!
