944kid

I'll start by saying that this is an obituary . 

My girl, my love, the only girl that's ever stuck by me no matter what, always kept me safe, and always got me home, died today. 

In the four years we've been together, she's had her ups and downs but for the last two, she was u n s t o p p a b l e
I'd taken no losses, seen no tail lights , and smelled no exhaust fumes. She was an animal—everything I'd ever wanted...and more. From violently pitching sideways with a jab of the throttle, to exploding cannon sized flames out of the 4" exhaust, she was perfect. Every nut, every bolt, every lifter, carefully tucked into their homes by no one other than me. My hands breathed life into this snarling hunk of turbo motor. 

She was one of the most impressive stock motors out there, and she was always ready for battle at a moments notice. Subaru? Laughable, newer Porsche? Jokes. Evos? Bahahaha. She scoffed in their faces and laughed between shifts. 

Sootootoo BOOOWWWM BRAAAAAAAHHHHAAAAHHH SOOOTOOOTTOOO BOOOM rowing through gears. I almost couldn't grab them fast enough. Lord knows my heart is heavy. 

My '85 early car. The one I'd driven to Florida and back three times, to Virginia for 944 fest, and all around the country handing out ass whippings and showing tail lights, was lifeless. She never ever left me stranded...she stayed true. 

The knock could be heard up the street. Rod bearings disintegrated and getting worse as I puttered home. Lost a cylinder on mile 6 and she shut off and locked the rear tires 2 miles from home. There it was, the end of my beloved . Knocking right in front of my face. She made it ten and a half miles from the race point to my driveway, took her last breath, and shut off.

Her last moments looped in my head...

I split from Audi mike and then I saw a GTR, since it was wet, I was fighting for traction, and I went into boost in third and then it was over.

The road's split up ahead — I can go left or right. One goes down and back the way I came, the other...well I dunno that way. What I do know is that I'm good at figuring it out if I do go down the unknown...some of my best discoveries happened that way. Got nothing to lose at this point right?

Rest in peace bloo.
