Over the past year and a half, Rodney Nichols has become one of my closest friends. Like many, I met him thanks to Mr. Slammington and this very site. It wasn’t long after I met him that he opened the door of his garage to show me his 1986 Honda Prelude. At the time, it was in several pieces, and he was looking for some advice on how to modify his front suspension.
Import Alliance 2011 went rather well and we all had a blast at the event. It was a great opportunity to see old friends and faces and discuss what parts we’ve broken and what parts we’ve fixed since the year before. The hot sun was as brutal as always and the sweat made just as much of an appearance as the cars, but nonetheless a good time was had by all. There’s no question though that best part of the weekend was the day after.
I am guessing that it’s rather apparent to most people that I am a diehard BMW enthusiast. I’m sure there are a certain number of people who would also argue the point, but nonetheless, I’m as pro-BMW as they get. I’m probably most known for a car I put together which goes by the name of Rusty Slammington.

“It’s HIDEOUS! I want it ” Most girls only care about pretty things and Carol Thelen is no exception. What makes Carol unique from most girls is that she immediately sees the potential and enjoys the adventure of building a beautiful car. While in Seattle on an internship I bought a clean, one grandmother owned, 1992 VW Golf GL for a daily. I had dirty thoughts of making into a track car when my other car was finished.
