Previous History - The car had two previous owners. It was owned by a young woman in the New Hampshire area (I believe), it was rescued from the rust belt before cancer started, fortunately by it's second owner, who moved to Jaxonville, FL. I found it while he was trying to sell it on Yahoo auctions.

Major Service Work Performed - Shortly after I got it, I realized the clutch was chattering badly, dispite having been replaced only two years earlier according to the records. It soon failed after 5 or so AutoXs and some hard driving by me. I replaced it with a TRD kevlar unit at 121,000 miles.

AfterMarket Performance Mods - In addition to the TRD Kevlar clutch (supplied by Jay Marks Toyota), I have a TRD short shift kit, an AutoMeter boost gauge and air fuel meter in a custom pillar pod by Lo-Tek engineering. The car has blazer dual air horns as well.

Aftermarket Audio Mods - None yet

Problems with Car -  Too Fast?

Misc Notes - I AutoX the car in SCCA AS class, but many modifications will come when I make the move to ASP
