The galant has been in the family since 1998, it was purchased brand new as a 1999 model, I rode home in the back seat of the car from the dealership when I was 8 years old. My mom drove the car until she bought another vehicle, and then it sat for a bit. I went through a phase where I dumped tons of time and resources into a MKIII Supra Turbo, but right before starting college I parted it all out and bought the galant from my mom to have a nice stock daily driver. Well that clearly didnt last, I discovered this forum and all bets were off. The car went from a few bolt ons here and there and slowly developed into what it is today. The car has changed colors, transmissions, motor, manner of induction, suspension, interior, brakes, quite literally everything. Ive gotten to the point where the car is finished, just regular maintenance is required to keep her running strong, the chassis is approaching 200,000 miles and I drive it at least 80 miles a day in all conditions.
Id like to thank all the members that have helped me over the years, special shout outs to Noel, Brian, Jigz, Marc, Brandon, and anyone else that I am forgetting. Also massive thanks to Extreme Turbo Systems, Aaron, Myles and Lucas @ English Racing, and Eddie and the whole crew at AR Auto service. Also to my friend Josh who has put in hours of work on this car and my friend Nial for getting me into tracking.
