    Hello everyone!
    Recently I acquired 1997 Talon ESi. I'm excited to have a project to work on. Really my end goal is to have a fun car to drive and work on and hopefully sell in few years in a better condition than I purchased it in. I'm located in Dubuque, Iowa.
    Anyway, I'll be on here posting pictures, looking for advice, and looking for parts. I hope you all will be kind to this newbie!

    Keep in mind you'll have the 420a with the ESi so you may want to clarify when posting questions or content so ppl know where you're coming from.

    For a fun daily the 420a can be a really fun car that's peppy and easy to maintain, as long as it's taken care of and work is done with a realistic mind set.

    @dsmcrzy and a couple other na-t guys should have some good info for you on smart things to do for a 420a car.

    Welcome and let us all know how we can help!

    As @tametalon92 mentioned, you'll need to specify that you have a 420A car when asking questions, since most here are 4G63 owners. If you create a DSM profile it will show up in your signature automatically, which will mean you won't have to mention every time you post a thread. You'll notice we all have little icons in our signatures with photos and info about our cars - that's due to having created DSM Profiles. Just go here:

    And click the orange button on that page to get started. Fill in your vehicle info and add photos. Once you do that it and Save, it will automatically create a Build Thread for you that you can then update as you make progress on the car. ;)
