Project Car: Alto Works

1998 Suzuki Alto Works Limited HA11S
63 HP, 657cc inline-3, turbocharged, I/C F6A
FF, 4-speed automatic

A small, little kei car that might be slow, but it is an absolute turbo blast.


Daily Driver: Swift Sport

2008 Suzuki Swift Sport ZC31S
123 HP, 1.6L inline-4, NA M16A
FF, 5-speed manual

A “warm” hot hatch that may not have a lot of power, but it handles well, is fuel efficient, practical, and fun.

Scrapped: Wagon R

Scrapped: Alto Works HA12S

1998 Suzuki Alto Works ie HA12S
59 HP, 657cc inline-3, NA F6A

A car with simple, direct steering, paired to a solid, reliable drive train. A great little car that was unfortunately gone too soon. Scrapped October 2016.


Sold: Lancer Evolution X

2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, SSS Package
291 HP, 2.0L inline-4, turbocharged, I/C 4B11T

This made me feel like a driving hero with a sophisticated AWD system and decent mid-range torque. Sold in 2015.


Sold: Mazda Miata

1994 Mazda MX-5 Miata Roadster NA8, Package C
129 HP, 1.8L inline-4, NA BP-ZE
FR, 4-speed automatic

I purchased cheap because it needed a few repairs. It was fixed up and driven around for a few months as a new daily driver. Sold in 2014.


Sold: Suzuki SV650

2001 Suzuki SV650
69 HP, 645cc V-twin

A torquey, fun little bike that also sounded great with an aftermarket Yoshimura exhaust. Sold in 2009.
