History:
I bought it in Oct of ’97 with 10k mi on it as my second car(first was a ’90 Talon AWD).    I loved the look of the ’97 Talon as soon as they came out.  It was my DD for about 10 years and only became a weekend car to keep it in good shape.  I now drive an EVO X everyday, but still love speed and looks of the Talon and will keep it forever.  Phoenix is starting to get a big DSM community and our monthly meets have been great motivation over the years.  Big thanks go to Scot Gray and his famous 1G (which I used as my main inspiration) and to the guys at RRE who have helped me build this car over the last decade.  They are the best shop around!

The dyno speaks for itself!
Thank You for the props Jason!!  Keep up the good work!
