Re: Who's all still around?

This forum died sadly. It was great. The drama, the tech talk, the nudes from Red. Wait what

My 1G has been sitting since 2010...picked up a GVR4 in Oct 2016...slowly building it up because of the kids I've acquired over the years

Since when are you admin? I remember you bring a mod?

Re: Who's all still around?

I'm still on here daily in hopes that there might be activity... I'm let down, but it's easy to stay on top of new threads.

Still have my Spyder along with a 95 TSi. I've had one other build thread on a 1ga Laser that actually came full circle from purchase to completion to selling.

Re: Who's all still around?

Still into 4G63s. Sold my old 1G almost 8 years ago. I have had my VR4 for almost 4 years now. It's mean AF but I break too many things in it. I check in here once awhile. 0 activity. Sad.

Re: Who's all still around?

I hit this site to see what's new every week or so. Basically not much!

Still driving my '97 Spyder GS-T, though not as much now that I've retired from my job as a medical device engineer with Siemens and we've moved to Burlington, KY (from Newark, DE). The car's running fine since the crankshaft position sensor bit the dust during a 600 mile trip earlier this year. 135K on the odometer, if I remember right.

The car's mostly being used to blast down I-71 at 80+ mph to Louisville and back when I go to visit my mother at the senior living center. It's still my favorite to drive of our three cars (no contest).

Oh, I did get a misfire a month or so back when I floored it to get around some semi's dragging their arses. Scary having the engine stumble with the turbo at full spool. The check engine light came on, but the power recovered when I slowed-down below 80. Checking the OBD code on my ScanGuage II and looking it up via smartphone (nonspecific intermittent misfire), I cleared the code and resumed driving. No problems since, but I don't jump on the throttle quite as heavy anymore. D-oh!

Have started to see some rust peeking thru the top surface of the front shock towers. Will evaluate the condition of the car this spring, it needs a new coat of paint (clearcoat is badly deteriorating), and the tan canvas top needs replacing again (8 years since the last replacement). Like most cars built since the damn government mandated the use of low VOC water-based paints in the early '80's, the original finish hasn't held-up well under the sunlight exposure from being parked outside since I bought it in 2007. And the leather driver's seat is splitting at the seams where my butt rests. Fortunately, I have a spare (powered) seat from a GSX in my garage at our new home that will serve to replace the original.

Oh, and I was surprised when I registered our cars in KY that the '97 Spyder is valued at 70% more than our '00 Toyota Camry LE that had less than 100K in August. 21 years old (built in 12/96) and becoming a collectors' item?

142K not-so-daily driver, now that I'm retired. Last fall had the convertible top replaced (second time since I bought the car in '07). Also had most of the body repainted (peeling clearcoat) by a first-class bodyshop. Took five weeks, for a total cost for both jobs of $4K. Car looks almost new now. BTW, damn tired of seeing the obnoxious Eclipse Cross commercials. It's heresy using the Eclipse name on a damn SUV.

Re: Who's all still around?

I still drop in from time to time to check out any activity here but its been dead for years. Sadly quite a few dsm or local based forums I used to frequent are dead also. I mostly just stick to Link and Tuners. I still cant get on board with Facebook. A bunch of idiots on there....

Re: Who's all still around?

I'm still around. I pop in every once and a while. Never post anymore though.

Still have my car. Went [email protected] but that's slow and not impressive these days.
