Thanks, it already has 5k miles on it so it should be broken in already. But it'll still be fun putting some miles on it none the less.

My brother made the trip with me. He's one of the reasons I'm getting this car. He has owned an original AE86 for going on close to a decade and he's pretty stoked I'm getting this. If I didn't trade in a car on the FR-S, I would've made the cruise in his Levin.

My camera battery was dead before I left. And to be honest, all day yesterday was me catching up on sleep. I was up pretty much he whole 23 hours of the trip going off of about 5 hours of sleep from the night before. I'll try to get some pics today.

It's been raining today so no pics. But I did pick something up for it today. Nothing big but then again I won't be getting anything big for it for a while. I'll try to have it done by this weekend when the weather is better.
