    I may have only really been a casual observer, but thanks for the ride man. I think cars are one of those particularly "human" things that dig deep into our psyche when they grab a hold of us, for better or for worse. Mirroring life they bring us tears that are sometimes sweet and sometimes bitter, but it's worth it for the experience. Keen to see what's next, drop a link here when you do so I can follow along again.

But now, I'm just gonna be waiting to see a new post started by you, I've stuck around for 4 years for content, and have no intentions in stopping now. Best of luck man
    Thanks for sticking around... sorry your swap didn't go the way you wanted, I can relate. Good luck to you too.

    Thank you for casually observing. If these threads didn't do anything for me, I wouldn't post them. I'm not sure what's missing from my life, but these threads help fill some kind of void.

    Coincidentally, I just pulled this out of the oven... http://www.stanceworks.com/forums/sh...Failed-Drifter

    The longer we stare at things, the more we convince ourselves they're beautiful.

    Yesterday would have been the RX7's 9th birthday lmao. Since I sold the car, my life has advanced in many ways, and I have reached some goals I can be proud of. I thought I'd get on my computer and look over some of the pictures, and found this rolling shot. Thought I'd post it.





    When I started off the build 9 years ago, people were making car-clubs, drift guys were making teams, and I didn't want to miss out on the fun. That's when I created MIROTEKNIK. Unfortunately, none of my buddies got into the drift/tuner scene, so it was just me. As I built the car, I made shirts for my buddies as a joke on the surface, but also deep down, it kind of meant a lot to me lol. They ended up really liking the first round of shirts, which inspired me to make another few rounds in the next years.

    When I officially drove the car home from the shop on 4/20/18, I knew I had to make one more round of shirts. The CHAMPIONSHIP Edition. In the process of creating the shirts, the designer misspelled some words, and so I had to order another set. Lots of red shirts. Where is this all going?

    Basically, I have 4 shirts left. 2 Mediums, and 2 Large's. 2 have minor misspellings, 2 are corrected. The misspelled versions are actually SUPER RARE USSR-SDM editions because they are Version 1.0. I might autograph the misspelled ones idk. These are dumb, but a guaranteed conversation piece. I just cannot throw them away, and I already wear my own set too often.

    I will only tell you what the text says after you buy the shirts. These shirts are for believers. Dream chasers. The kind of man that the world can't keep down. Are you that bro? Where will these shirts go? What will become of them? I don't know, but they must go.

    $30ea shipping paid. HMU with a message and we’ll PayPal. Its going to be weird.

    I am a grown ass man now... but.... if you can't relate to the magic and wonder in this (man i hope this is real) news story...---> https://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/news...L9h?li=BBnbfcL





    Every kid should take that impossible goal of a dream car, and make it happen in one way or another. The older I get, the more I realize how little magic there really is in the world. Stories like this take me back though. To a time when I believed whatever I saw. I'd believe anything I was told, and everything was an adventure. Nothing seemed impossible. I had no understanding of mechanical or financial limitations, and if I could dream it, it could be done; somehow.

    We're all too grown now. We know a lot more about what we can or can't do. We know what parts cost, and we know which ones we can't afford. We know what is compatible, and what isn't. That pure, ambitious vision in your mind of your dream car that was so clear is now just a huge math problem. Cost, fitment issues, tuning questions, adapters, limitations in the engine bay, this or that in the way of positioning this or that where you wanted to... but I know there was a time, when you really thought you'd build a spaceship that could fly. Or a motorized scooter. Or a go-cart. And as childish as all of that may seem now... I truly believe it is the entire foundation for our car-hobby today. Slamming, boosting, lifting, stancing cars... is just that little kid that grew up, but remembers what it was like to dream without limits.









    Merry Christmas.
