History
Found her at a classic car shop in my town, the brakes were completely locked down, timing was off by 999 degrees :), every single rubber hose was destroyed, there were vacuum leaks everywhere and I had no idea what a distributor was. Over the few months I have had Mira, she has taught me so much about cars and that with a little bit of creativity you can "fix" or "improve" just about anything mechanical.
