You know how I was having brake problems...

It sucks when you lose your brakes and find out that your brake line snapped because the structure of the car broke. I welded the piece back together, repaired the line and mounted it in a slightly less scary spot but I figure this is gonna break again. Sadly I think it's on its last legs since I wouldnt consider it safe to drive anymore, but it sucks saying goodbye to your first car after 7 years and 80,000 + miles. Currently looking for a donor for the drivetrain.

In a perfect world there would be no drag coefficient and honda civics would do 300mph, but then again who would want to go that fast in a tin can?

It's probably going to be a 60's era ford or mercury. I still have a turbo coupe though.
