Just thought i'd say hello to everyone. I dont have a ffr model yet but once i'm done with college i'd like to purchase the new mk3 kit. Actually, I planned on taking the 3 day course at motte community college since it's an hour away from my house. Make the process go by that much faster once i get the car. Right now i have a 94z28 that's in the 12's so i'm a big car enthusiast. I'll be surfing around here trying to gather as much information as possible before i purchase my kit. Cant wait till that day comes!

1badz, I hate you. I detest you. Comin' out of college and buying a car as cool as an FFR?

Kids these days. I worked and slaved for 30 years out of college before I could pull it off.

Whatever... WELCOME TO THE INSANITY, FRIEND.... hope you realize I was just bustin' yer chops there. Young, single, pure babe magnet for a car...man, your are one lucky guy. ENJOY!!!

Well, in all reality i'm not even sure i'll be able to afford the kit right out of college. The kits are going for 11,500 but according to the brochure i just got from them the price is supposed to go up another $1000 because of the price increase in materials they're using. I'm going to be making about $30,000 a year fresh out of college as a teacher. I dont plan on getting it done in 3 months in fact i was planning on it taking me years to build. eats m whole i'd love a copy of the spreadsheet.

Oh Shi...nikies! :eek: Did you say "School Teacher"? Did you not hear what AJ wrote: :confused:

Young, single, pure babe magnet for a car...man
Gotta song for ya bro, catch the melody as you read the words and see if that doesn't Sting Ya as the Police swarm your domocile: :(

"Young teacher, the subject of school girl fantasy. She wants him so badly, knows where she wants to be."

Yeah, in the seat of that Cobra leaving a dew spot bro!
Be careful and beware of "The Apple"


In the interim, I'd love to get you a copy of my spreadsheet so you can plan how much money you won't have to spend those Femm Fatales. Just send me a PM with your email address and off she'll go.

Here's to good friends and to keeping your head in a sea of pheromones

Yea, i'm gonna have to beat all those teens off with a stick if i pull up in one of these cars. Good thing by the time i finish it i'll be 30...lol. It's
really cool how friendly everyone is here. How long did it take everyone to finish their rides? What's nice is that ffr is talking about starting a payment program with the banks which would be right up my alley since i wont be making $100,000+ like i'm sure most on here do (judging by the garages with cobras,
vipers, ect).
