Put her to sleep with a little over 20,000 miles.
Started driving her March 24th, "officially" put her to bed November 24th. 20K ain't bad for 8 months of driving :D

Her garage is about 300 feet from my place, a long walk, but well worth it every day.

I've got the CAI/Tune, aluminum drive shaft with Safety Loop, porterfield pads, the evolution ultimate suspension kit (LCAs, UCA, panhard, toque box braces), borla axle-backs, proglass hood (still unpainted... anyone know a paint shop in the detroit/auburn hills area?), front lights blacked out (fog,turns, and headlights), sequential tailights, 'mini' antena, and a few other things that have slipped my mind.

It has been, by far, the best money i've ever spent in my short life so far. Next year looks to be just as fun and exciting, with the 3.4 Whipple going in, some new rubber, and who knows what else.

Picked her up in August but drive a commuter car to work to save on miles/wear/gas, so I only have 563 miles so far :( However, I can't seem to keep from driving her for more than a week or so.:p I do plan on driving a lot more, but she's close to being put to bed for the winter. :(

4500 miles - daily driver.

How do you wash the underbody when you can't take it to a machine wash??

Hit a rabbit a couple weeks ago and got some rabbit guts that may be festering down below....

Wondering if they put too much / wrong oil in at last oil change.... seems a bit... Boggey after the change.

No mods... yet - planning new stereo in the Spring. Want to consider my options for a while. Will Probably do CAI + Tune first then add new rubber while I contemplate the options - KB stage 3 is looking good.

1200 miles since July 10, 2007. I have a POS 97 Honda Accord as my daily driver. I take her out at least once a week. Changed the oil just prior to 1000 miles.

Mine is bone stock except I painted the rear axle. Next up are painted mirrors.

I picked mine up October 26th of 2006, and she has 1400 miles, she is already hibernating getting some beauty sleep. I only have tinted windows and the Shelby signature plaque but I am waiting patiently for the Super snake conversion.

*35% window tint
*1 piece drive shaft
*pulley,jlt cai, tune
*3" bassani exhaust, no cats, race mufflers, stock manifolds

I am looking into suspension over the winter, not sure which route I will take. I also want a set of tires before I go back to the track. After the wedding and christmas I might start to have some money for the car now.
