I'm 25. I bought the car on July 3, 2001 when I was 19 and it had 113,375 miles on it. I fell in love with GVR4s the minute I first read about them, probably when I was 17 or so, and knew one day I'd own one, despite having no idea what they looked like. I'd never even seen one (not even a picture) until I drove up to John Teeter's house (the PO) and he had 3 in the driveway: a Kensington Gray DD, a Summit White rally car, and the Belize Green I now own up for sale. Yea, there might have been a little leakage in the pant department. It was far more beautiful than I could have imagined. She's now got about 127,000 or so miles on here and while we're both a tad more worn I haven't looked back since. I've never owned any other car.
I know it's a foreign idea for most of us here, but you might want to try taking the car off jackstands. -mitsuturbo

I'll be 48 in Nov. I met my badgeless in '93 at my sis in laws doctor friends home. He bought her new so as to not use his BMW and MB to take skiing. By the time I got her in '05 she had been thoroughly abused and badly mistreated. I'm proud of her regardless!
Just turned 28 this weekend. Got my galant 2 years ago from my buddy that got sick of trying to get it running. One oil line later and it ran like a champ. I immediately put a larger turbo on it and hope to drive it again someday.
Almost 27. My dad bought the 91 galant from the dealership late in the year new (92's had already come out, it was between the white and a green 92). After my brother went off to college, my dad sold it to him for a dollar! After college, my brother was going to trade it back to my parents, and buy a Tahoe from my parents so he could tow a trailer of stuff across the country a couple times. (What was he thinking?). Anyway, my parents were about to sell it, and had already looked into listing it. I was off to college at this point, so I mustered up the courage and asked my dad...can I have it?
The rest is history - well almost - it's been sitting around for almost two years, and I just started rebuilding the motor - hopefully it will run again in about a year - stay tuned!
