There are just so many design elements of the Gen 2 BRZ/86 that I do not like. Foremost among them is the heavy sculpted section below the door and into the rear fender. Also the front and rear are...

Getting replacement parts to replace damaged items is different from a repair not being properly completed (IMO) and the car being placed on the line as a new car. A future buyer would likely end up...

I do not buy the story either but what appalls me the most is that they say this was a new car test drive and after the damage they just replaced the clutch and pressure plate and then put the car...

That is how I felt about my Datsun 280Z. The next closest is my current toy, the MR2 Spyder but it sits so low that is harder to get in and out of. Of course, I was 40 years younger when I had the Z.

I am looking forward to the onboards to see what happened at the start. It looks like you had a great drive up through the field though and a good showing for your first Run-Off appearance.
