My car is a 2008 cobalt LT. Bought her in 2010 as a daily driver but had to start modifying her when I realized that the cobalt was the rental car of choice by the tourists in my area. I HAD to stand apart from the herd! Now that I've started modifying her, I needed a direction to take her. Form? Function? A balance of both? I decided to go with function and start beefing up her suspension for autocross. Enjoyed most of 1 season but was cut short due to a fire caused by bad wiring in one of my retrofit headlights. After the fire, I resigned myself to the fact that she prolly wasn't going to race anymore and rebuilt her with looks in mind.
That's pretty much where I am today.
She still may not look like much, but a LOT of work has gone into getting her to where she sits today. Tons of research, lots of mistakes made, craploads of money (that I probably shouldn't have spent), gallons of blood sweat and tears shed, and a single goal in mind; to take what used to be a rental car, and turn it into something that can surprise. All the work is slowly paying off with a lot of local recognition, tho. I was featured in the Honolulu Street Pulse magazine in august of 2013, and am currently sponsored locally by fresh2death detailing.
