  • The Adventures of Nancy

    Well it has been just over 1 year since I flew to California to pick up Nancy.
    It has been a great year and she has been very good to me! A few minor issues here and there but altogether nothing major. I've put 20,000 miles on her now and have been averaging around 43-44mpg interstate and 33-34 city with an overall average of about 38mpg. Which I am very pleased with for a bp.

    What I've done since I bought her.
    -New tires (had some issues but Dennis (guage) got her aligned nicely.)
    -Hatch cover
    -New speakers, amp/sup setup
    -Intermittent Wiper (orange)
    -Hatch Light
    -Regular oil change
    -Replaced thermostat

    Pretty basic this year I was very busy this past school year and this summer.

    Plans for Nancy-
    -Tint (this week sometime)
    -Good cleaning/detail (before fm5)
    -F series tranny (getting at fm5), axles, clutch
    -New windshield! (thanks festivaWes!)
    -Mud flaps
    -Dash clock
    -Side skirts
    -Turbooooooo (I have: manifold, t3 garrett turbo, intercooler, Slow build )
    -A/C Compressor
    -Hatch 12v plug in
    -New vinyl decals



    Hatch fo-floor, with sub/amp underneath

    New decal

    Cup holders oh yes

    Door Tweeters

    Driving Lights

    I don't have any good new pics so I'll post this old one. Until I clean her up nice and shiny.



    In conclusion I love my car! I love this site, and I look forward to keep working on her.

              Thanks everyone! I hope to get some pics before fm5 after I get my tint and a good wash. With a nicer camera than my crap camera phone.

                        Nah, it would be something more like "Nancy Loves Rocco"

                            Nope. The decals are on the outside of the glass luckily

                            Those will probably be next once my 13" tires are done.
