Hey everyone!, so this is going to be my first 86 come January 24th-29th, getting a Base Trueno blue, MT all weather package at MSRP. I currently have a Boss 302 I'm selling for mine, I also have my track car a turbo NB miata, Ive owned a supercharged C7 corvette, 04 mach 1 mustang, 13 GT mustang, and I know it may seem crazy to want to get a GR but honestly I think the car looks perfect. I live in the curvy mountains of KY and fast cars are fun but honestly owning my miata really changed my perspective on cars that I enjoy. Also scared the Sh!t out of my brother in law who has an E36 M3 in that car lol. I have also been going to local SCCA's throughout the country where I lived at the times (Prior Air Force) and have to say that really was where I enjoyed my cars the most. Cant wait to get the car, plan on lowering on coilovers possibly Godspeed or BC racing, get a catback exhaust and UEL once tuning is available, and some APEX ARC-8 wheels. cant wait! Thanks for the add and cant wait to talk to you all on here!

I actually Worked at the ford dealership in Richmond and was able to get the Toyota dealership (Toyota South) we own to get me one at MSRP, couldn't get below since I don't work there anymore.
Twins!!! I lost my NB2 on Freeway but boy i missed her. You might be familiar of this since you work at Ford, the GR86 clutch had been bugging me since i got it. Of course it can be taking extra care and attention but I went ahead and removed the springs behind the clutch pedal and viola... my GR drives like a normal car now, also something I'm very used to (miata) . IMO, adjusting exhaust tips and taking springs off should be the 1st thing to do for any enthusiast.

Awe man!! Sorry to hear that about the NB2 glad you're alright though! And I'm actually 90% wrapped up on my turbo build been piecing a whole thing and doing it all myself over time "helped sell it to the wife" lol but man I honestly am just excited to have this car man, I'm sure you can relate, and good notes on the clutch spring I wouldn't have even thought of that!
