As for me…
Everything really started in 2007. That was the year I married my wonderful husband, and we acquired our first sports car — Our 2001 Honda S2000. (She was also the first dream car we both got.)
Soon after, I was introduced to autocross, and the Mazda Miata. I instantly fell in love and we decided it would be the perfect car for me to get started in cars. In July of 2007, my Miata came home.
However, I didn’t do much… Until the summer of 2008. While my husband was deployed, I decided to go ahead and buy my Miata’s first modification — A set of Turn Signal Intakes. I installed them myself in our driveway and from that moment on, I was hooked.
My Miata went through a drastic transformation in the fall of 2008, and in December she and I did our first autocross. At the same time, our S2000 gained some modifications and did a few autocrosses of her own.
In 2009, my Miata and I did our first full season of autocrossing, only missing a single race day. (And that day we instead opted to do a track day with our Miata club at Hallett instead. ) In December of 2009, we were awarded with the Rookie of the Year award! 2009 also saw us get two different car show awards — One for special recognition (youngest participant, me not her!) and 2nd place at another local show.
The biggest change of 2009 was, perhaps, the addition of my project — My 240SX. She’s been fun and a good way to show that I’m not just a Miata girl.
2010 was mostly an off year, though my 240SX was finally up and running with an SR20DET. I took the year off of racing because of a move and the addition of my Nikon D3000 to my life. Instead of running half an autocross season, I took photos instead.
After finding the local autocross group in my new home of Spokane, Washington, I vowed to get back into it in 2011. In June of 2011, my Miata and I brought home a 3rd Place trophy in autocrossing — A very exciting moment for us. (This being our first year not as Novices, and the autocross being a few days after my 23rd birthday.)
2011 also saw the car family expand, with our 2011 Subaru STi joining us.
I’ve also decided that four cars is a little crazy…. In February of 2012, I said goodbye to both the Miata and 240sx to make room for a new “project,” as well as working on the S2000 more.
In the summer of 2012, we parted ways with our STi and welcomed our 2008 BMW 335xi into our lives, a car we both adore.
After my first track weekend with the S2000 in the fall of 2012, I’ve got big plans for her in 2013….. I’m also looking forward to modifying the BMW more, and hopefully welcoming our first Porsche 911 into our lives.
Oh, plus there’s my Bucket List dealing with cars. I’m trying my hardest to both keep it up to date, adding things and trying to cross some things off.
