Cljviking's New Ride Thread

Alright, so here is my ride thread for my new 2006




The story starts off when I got my first eclipse, a 2002 GS that I found for cheap up in Idaho. It was beat to shit, but at the time I was looking for something cheap, that I could work on and be proud of as my first car after high school/college/etc.

I'll add more about that car later, but back to the thread. I fixed her up, and about a grand and a half later, as well as two months or so, got it through inspections and it was legal (for city roads, that is). This was back in September of 2013. Handled amazing in the snow, it was sporty, I was in love. The only major mods I threw on it was a CAI, new lower tails, and basically reconditioning the engine. Then the last week of may this year, I had it parked outside a friends, when I heard what sounded like a cannon going off outside. Come to find someone hit the back of it going probably 60 through that residential area...

It was totaled out...
But then I got referred to a dealer that a friend of a friend worked at, and found a deal on this one-previous-owner 2006 Eclipse GS with 75,000 miles on it, mint condition. With tax and licensing, got it for $9,000 dead, and took it home Sorry for the sob story, but thought it would make this post unique. Can't wait to share more of it! Also would love to hear feedback.

Update

Alright, back after awhile. I quit a job, and found a better one, so now I can start looking at actually doing things to this car

I actually found a guy selling some Evo VIII wheels w/ tires for $450, I'm going to go look at them saturday, see if they'll be worth it. But, super excited!

So, found some decent rims to throw on for a decent price. I'm happy with how it is
