Congratulations! ... that was me in 1993.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

Congrats!!! Borrow someone else's car for the interview commute. Unless the people already know you and the car, the mods you have done could give a bad first impression of you as a "weirdo that tapes up his car" lol
