New rule. Anybody with nicknames that resemble food have to in turn buy me that food item when ever I want.

Also, I like big black wieners in and around my mouth.

my name is Craig Mendenhall
my car is my 97 mazda miata. im hoping to do a 13b rotory swap next winter when i have the time and money for the job.
i found KACD by meeting Brady O'Neal and Ariel Galyean. i saw their miatas in the driveway and when i got one for myself i whent over to their house and introduced myself.
ive drifted in video games for years and when i bought Bradys 97 miata in july i started learning by throwing it around corrners hear and there.
i live my life day by day one step at a time. i love to surround myself with good supportive people. ive been around cars and motorcycles all my life. i helped my dad build harlies and work on cars since i was little. im always happy to learn new things and wrench on cars.

For most part they were cool as hell. The electronics teachers were the only ones that were strict! Had to be shaved, tucked in, all "professional" :roll: Rest didn't care. I took Auto, Diesel, and Industrial.

He was just trying to get the "professional" look engrained in your head. He should go teach electronics at a college or university. I don't think that a clean cut appearance is as important in the auto industry. Have you seen the people that work at Ford? LOL

We had to have shirts tucked in, shop pants, boots, and short hair. That was it for us. But, hardly any teachers followed it. The only reason I went to AZ was for the associates degree. I took auto and Ford FACT.

Real Name: Kyle

Current Car: '97 S14 SE

How I found KCDA: Google

Drifted since: 2012. Best friend destroyed my S13 I had at the time after four months, was so heartbroken after that I decided to never drift again. Sliding around and just hooning? Sure. Serious drifting? Not so much until about 7 months ago, I woke up one morning and remembered I wasn't a woman (no offence to any female readers out there).

About Me: Decided to give away a perfectly good KA to throw a RB25DET into my S14 one day out of the blue because I thought it'd be a fun build. Did everything myself in a garage; it's been the most fun nightmare I've ever gotten to experience. My wallet is unhappy but I am happy with the results.. the butt dyno shows huge gains. Eventually I'll be curious enough to know the real numbers. And here's a taco nyan cat for your viewing pleasure:
