    I will throw some pics up later today but I love the Toyota product so much I just went out and bought a 2000 Toyota Celica GT. It is a fun little car. And the paint matches my Tacoma. I got this to be a daily driver. I just got a new job that is going to be a big drive and this will keep me from piling the miles on my truck and keep me from sucking up gas.

    It already has a ricer muffler on it. Lucky it isn't loud at all. I wasn't going to buy the car if the exhaust was to loud. I can't stand an obnoxious muffler.

    Ninja as in sport bike ninja. Not Chinese stars. Lol. It is a manual. I feel better buying an old manual trans as opposed to an automatic. Nobody takes care of an automatic anymore.

    LOL!! Well that totally backfired! I was going to mention bikes but I chose the OTHER ninja!! I used to have a Ninja 1000R but it was too bulky for me. Could not get that sucker to lean no matter how far I pushed it.

    I had a zx6 when I was much lighter and I made that thing my bi+(#. There wasn't a larger bike out there that could get away from me unless they had a good straight away. My bike never had chicken strips on the tires. Just little shreds of rubber hanging off the edge of the tire. Unfortunately it got to the point I was fixing the bike more than I was riding it. So sadly I'm riding a cruiser now.

    At the time I was 109 lbs and even with the Corbin cafe seat on it I still had a hard time. I was 7.5 months pregnant when the doctor suggested I hang up my helmet and gloves.....

    The only bike that I kept was the Kenny Roberts race replica RZ350nc California edition (catalytic converters) two stoke. I got it brand new back in the day from his shop in San Jose. :)

    So the car had a check engine light on and had a very vague code of PO420. I decided to go forward with the up stream O2 sensor. I took it down to the local parts store and had the code cleared and it royalty changed the idling characteristics. I think this fixed the issue. Now I don't have a tag on the car yet so I pretty much drove straight back to the house. Maybe 2 miles so we will have to see in the future if it is truly fixed or not. I also changed the oil & air filter and spark plugs. The next thing on my list is struts all the way around. So far I'm loving how easy this car has been to work on. I only wish I wasn't so fat cause after pulling the car up on my ramps it was still a tight fit to get up to exhaustpipe to get to the sensor.
