Description: This old girl is just creeping up on the 300 000km (187500 mile) mark, so she's just barely broken in.

My daily driver since I purchased her new in early 2003, I have nothing but praise for this car.

My goal is to get into the 40-50 mpg range, but with a bunch of freeway driving each day I'm going to have to make her more aerodynamically slippery to get those sorts of numbers
Build Thread:
Current Mods: - modified the nut behind the wheel
- cardboard grill block to test size/airflow before I make a final decision
- windshield wiper delete - driver blade, pass arm and blade
- tires at 44psi
- ScanGuage II

Planned Mods: - weight reduction - just eliminating the junk could make a serious difference!
- front air dam
- partial belly pan
- wheel discs
- rear wheel skirts ??
