  1. Sent responses to PMs and added some more pictures. Jon the previous builder/owner provided me with all the receipts, build detail, etc. Really provides a great history.
  2. Croc, not me (unless my son both snuck it out and also learned to drive a stick). Must be her twin! -Rick

Track events are a bit intimidating for the moment as I'm still trying to figure out heel & toe in a much smaller footwell than I'm accustomed. Practice will make perfect.
  7. So my morning started with an enclosed car carrier arriving at the end of my driveway. After doing the required inspection (no issues), handing over a check and signing the papers I became the official new owner. Left with a few minutes before needing to leave for work I had the opportunity to take my first drive - it was awesome!

Tonight I had the chance to do a few more runs around the neighborhood (registration will be done later this wee
