A bit tardy to the party

A bit tardy to the party

Hey guys, my name is Bobby, I drive a 1999 Toyota Solara SLE. I've owned this Solara for a little over 2 years now, it was my first car and I honestly don't want a different one. Although I wish I would have bought an SE for a 5 speed.

I'm currently living in Indiana, not the most fun place in the world, but there are quite a few people who love their cars out here so it's easy to find people to talk to about them.

Unfortunately, there are no true "mods" on my Solara, I just turned 18 in April, and before that my parents were completely against me modding my car other than small cosmetic things.

About my car:
Bought it at 216K Miles - Still running strong at almost 250K! (Currently got my first engine light for heated O2 sensor, fixing soon)

Inside is immaculate, I'm outside every few days giving it a full detail, and washing the outside.

Outside not so good. Bought it on a snowy day in January, didn't notice decent sized dent on passenger side, nor the rust on passenger side (nothing huge, but it makes a difference to me)

The small things I've been able to do:
LED Glow interior with remote.
Blacked out grill/Toyota symbol
Carbon fiber replaced wood trim interior
JVC Head unit with 2 JVC front speakers, Rockford fosgate rear speakers, and Kenwood Subs/Amp
JDM Tow Hook (So everyone can hate and laugh at me :D )

As for me,
I'm 18, Starting college in August majoring in Computer programming, Been drumming for my entire life, love music, extremely interested in cars/racing and especially working on the Solara.

Thank you both for the welcomes. I tried to post some pictures but I think due to the fact that It's a new account I can't post them? I'm not positive. Just moved and my Internet got fixed so I will try again tonight.
