First S13

The first car was a white 89 hatchback, base model. I bought it in August 2001, swapped the SR in December 2002 and drove it daily until it’s demise in early 2005.

Backstory:

I got my first 240 in August of 2001 after reading as much as I could find on the internet then about the car and it’s capabilities.  I practically memorized Mark Slide Squad and Heavy Throttle’s FAQ pages.  So I got one of my own that wasn’t running, fixed it up and daily drove that bad boy for about 3 years, driving in a bunch of events along the way and meeting a ton of awesome people; Mickie, Mario, Brian, Eddie, Will, Wayne, Mike and Cullen were always great friends who stood out to help me with my first car.  I moved to OC in 2005, cool because it’s much closer to the action than where I used to live.

Fast forward to Feb 5, 2005 and I get called into work at midnight on a Sat night / Sun morning. Working and exhausted at about 3:30AM, I hear a bunch of loud noises outside that sounded like someone breaking into the office.  Cops show up about 15 minutes later and I am devastated to see that the building is fine, but my car has been beaten to shit; all the windows, hood, fenders, all gone.  They didn’t take anything, but the insurance company did. They took the car, but I got most of the parts off beforehand.

I’ll just use  this space of the internet to say FUUUUUCK YOU to who ever did that to my car.

UPDATE: Fast forward 6 years and I’ve got a new shell to play with. Yay.
