    Background:
    I've cut into my bank account more times than I can count for this car. I've spent more money on it then some have spent on their GST/GSX. But that's ok, I'm soon to buy a GSX and then I can empty my bank account once again. It's and addiction.

    Wrecked (minor): 8/26/2019
    Purchased: 1/4/2018. It was dumping oil out of the engine. I was lucky to make it home (no, I didn't have a trailer). The car was in nasty condition, its 1000% better now but I'm still working on it. I have been an influence on my friends and family with this car, they like DSM's now.
