Nah, Manny had it for a long time too. I don't need it. Although, how are you going to get it back to me?

If it won't fit in the Foz I'll bribe my neighbor to help me with rum.

I saw a car meet next to the 3 amigos restaurant. 30+ jeeps. 15+ mustangs, couple of imports and euros. Anybody knows anything about it?

I see small meets happen all the time, but I've never seen that one.

What is the % of people that go to Brandon meets and dont get shanked, killed, raped, or car jacked? Used to be nice in Valrico/Brandon.. Now it's like driving through Detroit. Did you guys murder all of the homeowners association members?

Worse even.. My zip technically makes me a Wimauma'ian.

No offense, just went through my old neighborhood (bloomingdale) and was disappointed to see the state of (dis)repair. I was reading the local HCSO forum and they were talking about the impact all of the low-income apartment complexes built over the past decade have had on brandon.

Who wants my 2011 wrx trunk & deck spoiler? Even trade for wingless. White.

Anyone willing to help do some Eibach spring installing? Giving you guys a 3mo heads up.. Won't be doing it until the new year.

First of all, neighborhoods age. It's just what happens, especially here in FL. Where I live, there are no low income apartments, so, there is that. You should be blaming the housing bubble more than anything. I live in an established older neighborhood with zero issues. At least we aren't South Tampa...

Second, don't buy Eibachs. They are simply lowering springs and the spring rates are not adjusted for the drop. There are far better options out there than Eibach.

I lived in Valrico for 20 years. We probably know each other... Don't they all?

I ordered the Eibachs.

I just got back from an 8 hour drive to Miami to pick up a wingless trunk. By myself because I.. Don't have any friends. That **** sucked. Don't know how long distance truckers do it.

90% of the **** people post on the net is regurgitated rhetoric. Everyone is buying blacks or whatever, thats cool with me and I could've done that. I have found nothing but super satisfied reviews on the eibach set and the pics look great. I really, really don't think they will suck. Maybe I missed something (sincerely, I'm not trying to be argumentative, and I respect and appreciate the advice.) but Eibach has always been a solid, deeply rooted company. I can personally account for many, many guys that were very happy with them. I don't agree they are just lowering springs as if they just lobbed a few rings off of of the stock springs just to yield a 1-2" drop. We will see, maybe I'll hate them, maybe you will ride in my car one day and be pleasantly surprised. At this point... Just fake being happy for me because I really don't care if i'm riding on blown struts and 2x4's as long as I dont have to look at that ****ing Corolla-esque wheel gap anymore.

No, but I know the history of your car so I know what it's actually worth.

The worth has increased somewhat. I don't think I told you but I had a new short block put in through Nick's mechanic and had it retuned through Anthony. Runs a lot better now.

That doesn't make it magically worth more. It makes it reliable, but that's about it. Seeing first hand what that car has been through, I wouldn't spend more than 6k on it. I'm just baffled why you want to get rid of it for a car that's pretty much exactly the same when it comes to driveline wise. Minus the fancy differentials, but are you going to track ever? Sure, the chassis and suspension are a huge upgrade, but with all the money and time you spent on what you have now, I just don't get why you'd spend $35k on a brand new vehicle. To each their own, it must be nice to have such generous parents.

Who said my parents are buying a brand new car for me? I worked hard and got my bachelor's degree so I can get that car as a graduation present for myself.

Such a negative nancy/debbie downer.
