First car 97 GS didn't know much about DSM back then but I love the 2gb body style. "Had big turbo plans" but I was T-boned by a old lady 2 weeks into owning it.

Used insurance money to buy a 97 GST. Beat the piss out of it and went through 2 blocks and 2 trans. Never finished any projects I started on it. Amazing because it was my daily. When I blew it up the 3rd time I sent her to the junkyard. Gave up DSM for about 6 years. Had to get my life together. I was a drug addict.

Here I am today with my life a lot better, picked up a 97 gsx. I guess 97 was meant to be. But I want to do it right this time. Everything I've started has been finished. No half assing things because I didn't have the funds (money went to my habits). I feel like I need to redeem myself so here goes.
