Long time owner. new to forum

hello guys my name is davis
I own a 93 BB for a little over 15 years.
all stock and pretty low mileage. nothing crazy just regular maintenance and local autoX event once a years
I accumulated quite an inventory of parts I planned to install but due to recent events I decided to keep the car stock
so you guys will be seeing me selling parts really soon

cheers

davis

Welcome!! Hard to find an FD that'completely stock. That's the way I prefer all of my cars honestly. I just enjoy them being hassle free and reliable. Would love to see some pics of the car when you get a chance! Do you know any history on the car?

Also interested in pics! Staying stock is always the hardest part in owning a car... the mod bug always bites

once I get a few shots taken by a professional then ill upload some photos


I'm the second owner of the car bought it in 2002 in orange county CA
with about 24k miles and now its at 72k
I drive it pretty often but only 30 miles at a time . other then that it was a pretty good buy. nothing major no accident no rust just regular maintenance

Gladly.
at first the car was a DD for 2 years.
and like all DD purpose it needed to be in tiptop shape. it was my only car
so when things break or wear
its fixed or replaced right away to keep it on the road


I kept it at that even when it was retired from DD duty. didn't drive for 3years? tires must be dry and rotten. changed


fuel filter been sitting for 3 years with out much activity ? changed . same as the fuel sock


oil change every 6 months regardless of miles driven.


I do make sure I drive the car every 2 weeks for at least 10miles. I figured if the car was not driven at all and just sit the rubber lines would dry up and starts to either bloat or rot


biggest mistake was not fixing a single issue when it occurred cause one thing will and always lead to another. snowball effect my friends. **** the snowballs
