| My Car
I drive a 1992 Ford Tempo. Yes I know ... some of you are laughing
at me because it's a Ford. Others are laughing at me because it's a tempo. Well if your one of
those people who drive a ricer and have a large wing and think your car is fast or even if you
have a Chevy Cavlier with a 3.1 V6 adn assume your hot shit, then i have news for you. I have the
2 door v6 3.0 litter version. This translates into kick ricers ass, lean, mean, racing machine.
Yeah I know it's not a sports car. I also know it's not a $50,000 SUV or pickup truck. I do know
that most people underestimate the full potential of these little cars. It cheap on gas, has lots
of "get up & go" and you can do lots with them. Check out my
mods section to see what I have planned for my little econo car. Others at the web site
www.tempotopaz.com have taken this sleeper of a car and turn them into something we tempo/topaz
owners are very proud of driving. I fell in love with this car the moment I took it on a test drive
because of the quickness of it as well it's handling. Yeah ok it's the only thing I could afford
at the time. It has a/c that works, 2 door, and looks like a light version of a mustang.
I have added several cars to my kill list including a '98 cavlier and every honda I could race
I have won by no close margin. Once I even raced an old Porche 911. Yeah it was a 80's something
but even you have to admit that this is still a car that was designed from ground up to be a euro
sports car and my car kept up to it right off it's rear bumber up to 180 KM/h. This was the first
time I have experianced to be stopped and go nowhere was due to the speed limiter. It seems it
maxes out at 180 :( .... major bummer becasue I was no where near redline adn had lots of throtle
left. When I hit 180 he kept on going ... oh well I still felt proud of my car. From that day on I
had descided that I would look after this machine and even do a bit of work on it to let loose
the hidden monster that lies dorment under the hood. Not to mention this car looks like a sleeper
so cops don't go after it.
- Read in here all the specifications this car has. I'm
sure you will be just as I was that this car has what it takes to be a nice sleeper style
get around town in a hurry type of car with potential for more. When I do any major
modding to my car, I'll post final results in here.
- Stereo Install:
- I have always loved music. I m not one of these peopel that are a walking talking jukebox
that has every song in the world memorized. I do liek to listen to it and it is a rare thing
for the tunes to me off in either my car or my house. Please check it all out
here and see what you think about what I have done.
- These are some jokes I have collected that are about my car and rice bashing. They are
pretty funny and I hope you are as ammused as I have been. Take a
look and tell me what you think. If you have any jokes you would like me to post, please
feel free to E-Mail me and I'll put them up.
