    I am here as well. Just bought a 90 GS-T from a buddy. Needs paint and a water pump but other then that it runs good.

    92 4g63 engine swap, big 16g, complete lower rebuild, EVO III valve cover, AC,P/S, and vaccum delete, balance shaft elimination, and other mods.

    Looking forward to just hanging out this year and meeting some more fellow DSMer's

    I just got into DSM cars. I bought a 92 Eclipse GSt out of Bartonville last July. Needed head gasket and timing belt. Decided to buy a rebuilt engine instead. then decided to clean engine bay for new engine. Cleaned and sandblasted brackets and such too. not done yet. :banghead:
    I got my second DSM car now. 93 Talon TSi, awd.

    By the way there is a cruise night this saturday in Normal at the College Hills mall. Outside Von Maur.
    Not sure if I'll take the Talon, Chevelle, or Cuda. :p

    Bought a bonestock 91 Laser FWD Turbo in 2004 with 190someK mi. for $800. Took it home broke the turbo free with an impact gun, changed the oil and away I went. so there I was a 16yo country boy in a (badly taken care of)Turbo DSM, as you all guessed it didnt last long the clutch went out a week later followed by the bottom end 2 months after that so i sold it for scrap. went through a bunch of other cars mostly built neons then decided i would give the DSM one last chance. Recently bought a 91 Talon TSI AWD for a project car, think im here for good this time cars so much fun.

    Plan on getting my baby in working order once i replace tranny/clutch/flywheel.
    Then going to do the N/t to turbo conversion addressed on the forum til I can find a tsi awd for a rebuild. Can't seem to find one around here. =(
    Rolling in a 94 talon ES for now though!

    Mine's all white with blacked out tail lights and bronze rims and tinted windows. That's pretty much it so far.
