The Story

I have own the car for almost 10 years now. I have always loved small hatchbacks so when these cars came stateside I was committed to get one. The car has been bulletproof through multiple track days, driving events, and 90k miles. In Europe these cars are know as the car the Ferrari guys daily. I have taken it one step further over the years with parts of my build tipping my hat to the Ferrari F40. This is a forever car for me and I love it today after 10 years like the first day I got it.
