I drive between Kent and Arlington all the time. Occasionally i will drive to OR or BC. My car is pretty recognizable though with the MS kit and the obnoxious Knight Sports spoiler.

I just changed jobs but was commuting from Bellevue to Everett every day, I keep expecting to see my car in the rice thread. haha


We need to plan some meets for the spring summer, when do the Dick's meets start up?

I agree about the meets, would love to get some pics of a bunch of 8's all lined up. Your car wouldnt happen to be black would it? I saw a black 8 yesterday going to the Home Depot at Tukwilla he had the full MS kit but I didnt get a look at the spoiler.

I bought it from Mazda @ dealer cost

My front bumper got damaged this winter but I will repair it in the next week or two, I have to pull it and melt the plastic back together in some places.

low front bumper + unsalted graded parking lot at the Bank + oddly shaped curb + Ice & Snow + Proxy 888's = no stoppy

It was a slow impact...incredibly slow but still manages to crack the bumber and brake a small chunk off. It’s not too bad, easy to fix and fill just haven’t had the time. and my plate covers most of it. I’m going to modify it a little anyways, with the need to be different.

I was using the car for commuting and work so i kind of beat the hell out of it. but now i walk to work and maybe drive once to twice a week, so i will be getting her back to "like New" condition soon, minus the 130K i have put on her.


Edit: Really I was utalizing my mad driving skillz and was totally at one with this killer drift on the alaskin way at like 3 in the morning and as i exited the apex i flip kicked the rear end out to avoid this pot hole and cliped the front end on a..... lol
