Cool I'm Here! =)

Hey guys!

Just signed up @ this place and yeah here I am to say hi!

A few things about me, I'm half Saudi (dad) and half Austrian (mom) but currently live in Jeddah (city on the west coast of Saudi Arabia) I got my first car about a year ago. November 1st 2009 and I love it more than anything It's a black Ford Fusion SEL with black interior. In the US you guys don't have SEL but its basically the same look as the sports version. I know its a very common car over there but I've barely seen any here.

mhm I love black cars, tuners and yeah well I'm gonna go to College in Michigan starting January hopefully so ya =D

I'm not a pro at cars, at all... but I want to LEARN!!! ^^

Racing... uh... I've been to a few street races and then saw a terrible crash so I stopped going there =p.

Welcome!

Most guys here think street racing is pretty stupid. If you wanna race, take it to the track...but a Fusion isn't really a 'race car' anyways

Welcome

The only kind of street competition I'm aware of in Arabia is those crazy guys who spin their Lexus or Mercedes in the streets and drive on 2 wheels while hanging out the window. Thank you YouTube

Ahahah, welcome. Fusions are a dime a dozen over here, they're Ford's mainstay sedan.

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!
