Remeber how I said I almost bought an Evo? Looks like it was a good cal! All the bad news about Mitsu has caused their sales to plummet almost FIFTY PERCENT this month and 27% for the year. Yikes. Adios, muchachos.

Ok, now that I have a semi-respectible car, I'm thinking about taking it autocrossing. Let me explain in case you have never heard of autocrossing. Basically, a tight and twisty course is constructed of cones in a large parking lot. You rarely go over 60 MPH so this is not a high speed sport. It focuses on cornering and smooth driving. I'm definitely not good enough with the manual to consider doing it this year but I plan on checking out a few events so that I know what to expect next summer. Anyway, check out some of these course maps and you'll get a better idea.
