Default Too much power !

Well I've decided my Z has too much power, lol, for the starter at least. Today I went to start it, and I thought I didn't kick it over enough, so instantly I turned the key again at the precise moment it kicked over. Broke my starter in three differnt places, now it won't touch the flywheel, no start = :(

Funny thing, someone came over last night and bought the car, lol. I told them to give me a couple of days and I would fix it, but they wanted it right then and push started it :P

Which is awesome because I hated working on that car.

Yeah, I decided that the Z was a money pit, and I gonna buy my dad'* GTO in a year or so anyway, so I got out from under it, and got enough to buy my gf a new car, and get back about half of what I had in the car.
