History
Bought in March of '96. Used with 5K on her. She made it about a month before the modding started.
Daily driver for the first summer. Then added a winter car and stored her every winter since. After a few more years of daily summer driving, my winter cars kept getting better and the Imp now comes out to race, or on really nice days! :)
