Default Check out this Tiburon! Friend'* ride

Hi guys, just wanted to post a link to my buddy'* Tiburon. He'* put THOUSANDS into this car within a year. I set up a CD page for him. Have a look, and if you post in the guestbook be nice...you may think he'* a just a rice-burner, but he is 62 years old (no typo) and just wants to have fun with his new car. He'* one of the coolest guys you'd ever meet. He'* got a lot of mods installed, many cosmetic changes, but he has solid performance mods (nitrous too ) with more to come I think. Some things I'm not too fond of, but he likes it so that'* all that matters.

So anyway, check it out if you want. He works at a custom car place in Syracuse, where I've gotten some things installed (neons, spoiler), and he may be getting a supercharger installed there this summer. :o

Here it is: http://www.cardomain.com/memberpage/757336

I've never thought I would say this, but that Hyundai looks sweet. I bet that thing is a lot of fun to drive.

My neighbor has one almost identical to that one, except his side graphics are a little bit more elaborate.

I bet it'* fun to drive too. It'* a 6-speed, unfortunately I have never driven stick otherwise I'm sure he would have let me take it out for a spin by now. He has pretty good taste for the most part. He will probably get everything for this car other than a body kit since he does not want one.

Those can be kinda quick. Not fast, but quick. I'm sure that thing will do mid 15'* with no problem.

Yeah, they can be quick....I mean, my car is not that fast, but it can be pretty quick (shifts at or above 5500 constantly too ). I never raced his Tiburon, but with my Cutlass on a roll at about 45 and me punching it, I gave him a run for his money for a while, and I only have an intake, he'* got full exhaust and an intake. Anyway, I found some guys with Tiburons on CD who have some solid mods (headers, intake, exhaust....) and still only do 15.8 in the 1/4.

But about his license plate...he wanted to do a similar version of my plates (SSEEEYAA). He came up with HIANDBYE. I'm sure he can do mid 15'*, I would hope so. Unless he used his nitrous...... 150 shot
