I Live My Life A Quarter Mile At A Time.

OneYou won’t find Paul Walker, Vin Disney, or any of the other 9 Fast 47 Furious actors anywhere around this car. Why? Because we all know deep down that the real stars of all 8 (I want that sideways to represent infinity, but WordPress won’t cooperate.) Fast and Furious movies are the cars. And the women. But mostly the cars. And … well you get the point. It’s car porn, plain and simple.

As men, we deserve it. We cherish it. It is our God given right, nay duty as consumers of frivolity to visually gorge ourselves as much as possible when the opportunity presents itself. We aren’t going to shirk our duties to our work, family, projects, the lawn, etc. to spend countless years working on cars we might only ever be able to race once. However, this doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy watching it when its 53 x 73 feet wide.

@Eclipsed76 V-TEC kicks in after the jump.

The Internet is a great tool when it comes to social networking, marketing, SEO, etc., etc, but it’s also great when it comes to finding a home for your baby. Cars have souls too, dammit! In any event, @Eclipsed76 is parting with his 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T (You see what he did there with his twitter name? He’s a clever one.) He loves this car like it was his firstborn, and he has every reason to.

I drove this fine piece of moving art approximately three weeks ago and these words came to mind: Damn. That’s all I got really. This thing is so fast and so much fun to drive that even thinking about it makes me tense up. The car has a list of modifications as long as my… arm, and he did all the work himself (5+ years in an auto shop will teach you a great many thing). Let me drive (zing!) the point home with the mod list.

His ultimate goal is to find someone who is willing to care for this like he did. It’s not so much a transfer of ownership as it is an adoption.
