Yes, yes it is. Just spent a large undisclosed amount of money to finish the winter restorations/improvements. I put it under months back for a timing belt, weak brakes and driveline mounts being toast.
Hello all, it’s been a minute but I’ve finally gotten a free second to put a sliver of thought into this. I’ve had the Mirage coming up on a year; so I’ve decided I’d take you through what this year has brought me with the car.
It really is now officially haha
Winter doesn’t stand a chance this year. Just saying.
Please, talk me out of this. My new job and move has opened up some doors for me. My Mirage is staying, as is my Talon. My Mirage has earned its’ place and been a best friend over this last year. It’s also about to be paid off.
Ahhhh yes, today I had a chance to spend some time in a Ram Big Horn, a truck I’d been wanting to drive for some time. This truck is a special one though; it’s special because it belongs to my father. He’s been wanting a Hemi Ram for years, and after much trial and tribulation with the VA he’s finally realized that…
As someone that always looks into the future, deciding project cars is an emotional and important choice. I’ve deliberated back and forth and hadn’t really made any solid decisions; until last night.
My right hand man Nathan did the service one today on my Mirage; Amsoil Signature 0w20, an extended life filter and basic inspection. So he decided to bring a quick welding project he did to show me. He welded for a living for some time and hadn’t messed with it in a bit.
I’ve put 12,000 miles on the Mirage and I’m closing in on a year of ownership with it. Today I will go in depth about the ownership experience of the much hated Mirage.

My relocation is over. Finished. Done. Exactly as Raymond Calitri from Gone In 60 Seconds would say. That means it’s time to focus on my 1G Talon again; and I’ve wasted no time. Literally none.
A tiny bit over a month ago I started my new job in Dayton Ohio, relocating 135 miles from everything I’d known. Finding rentals wasn’t easy, and I had to set up shop in a weekly rate hotel. Thankfully the hotel is in a great area, but there’s some less than savory characters here to say the least.
I laughed out loud. This is me summed right up.
More than just a few days of racing, this weekend every year signifies the coming together of a large family. The fastest 4 cylinder cars in existence all converge upon the grounds of Norwalk Ohio; they are joined by the monsters we know as the R35 GTR.
Just like last year, I’m your DSM Shootout guide. This year is very special because the world famous 1320 video will be there providing coverage. Expect insanity. Bonus Mirage pics inside.
My best friend, my right hand man, and my MVP of the day just sent me these photos of a new RAM. Take notice to the 8 lug wheels and the crazy front suspension arm setup on the last photo, zoom in on it.
Well, used to hauling Amazon and other basic stuff. Last night I hauled this:
Don’t crucify me, took the pictures driving so couldn’t rotate my phone. Had historical plates so not sure if it was a real car or not. Not super well versed on these. Spotted outside Dayton Ohio.
By this point you all know me; I’m the guy that owns old Audi, Maserati and other obscure cars throughout time. I’ve been in the DSM scene for ages and have written all about that as well. I currently own a beautiful 90 TSi and my buddy Nathan and I have tons of friends with DSMs.
