About “Red”

This is my 3rd car and the one that'll last me awhile. I have a lot of plans for it:

- replace antenna
- replace hatch shocks
- replace crank pulley
- wire up locks
- tint rear and side windows
- recharge air filter
- put in perf. oil pump
- change oil to full syn.
- new tires all around
- fix the $#%^&-ing suspension noise
- KLZE swap
- H4 headlight conversion
- headerback exhaust w/Greddy can
