So it's been a while since I've put any pictures up of this thing.

College budget = zip tie swag. Can't forget the stache either.
Image

Paint is holding up though.
Image

Same with the caliper paint.
Image

So... Hood herpes..
Image

Image

And my favorite. Gas door rust. You can barely see it.. But just knowing it's there is annoying me.
Image

Tips are looking great and Flowmasters are a rumblin'.
Image
Image

Mileage is up.
Image

Whole interior shot.
Image

Engine bay needs a little clean up. Added some red out of boredom one day.
Image

Night shots.
Image
Image

Yellow fog lights, switch backs, and 5000k everything.
Image
Image
Image
Image

In reality, the lights are very white with a tiny tinge of blue. Camera went a little crazy.

Maybe it's the jdm bug in me but... yeah zip ties add some character. I couldn't agree more. Overall she's looking good Carl! The more I see all these Chicago are cars on here, the more I realize how much I need to ready the 94 for winter.

Can't wait to start doing what I want to this car when the money comes. For now, it's all school school school. The falling leaves aren't making me too excited.

Once it started going real bad I took some sand paper to get the primer off. That's why you can see the aluminum. Eventually I'll get down to getting it all off.

It's the same concept as herpes, just in a different place. Literally the paint is just separated from the primer. It bubbles up when it's humid out, lays down when its not so humid.

And many other things since the accident. From bumpstarting Miatas to removing annoying shopping carts from the way.

The tape was hideous. This is much better and lots of people have astonished looks when they see it. If only Fords and Lexi were just shopping carts. :(

Ranger's are pretty close to shopping carts. But they'll still do some hefty damage. :-$ :ballkick:

You know it. :btruestory:

People know me by this car. For better or worse.
Various studies conducted at my new school have determined the average facial reactions of people upon seeing Penny, proceeding in chronological order. Hear FWI noise: Wtf face. See zip ties: lol face. See bearded youngster driving land yacht/old man car: another wtf face. Hear sound system: bobbing head to the music face. Hear Flowmasters: disapproval face.

Mine usually starts with a super loud whine/exhaust note in my school's parking garage, and ends with people breaking their necks to see what just flew by them blasting the stereo. :lol:
