saw a maroon speed3 driving in West Linn but I dont think he is on here cuz I havnt seen anyone else posting from West Linn
[/quote]

No such thing as a maroon speed3 unless it is custom painted. :dunno:

I see many speed3s all the time. It seems like most people that I notice with them do not mod them at all.

I saw a lady on the Ross Island bridge driving a stock one and she seemed to be roughly my parents' age. Probably not a member here.

I passed the guy with the blue 3 with the blue/black hood on the Sellwood Bridge a few minutes ago. I had just dropped off my MS6 at Auto Town and was driving a light blue CX7 loaner. I know you're a member here but I can't remember your screen name without browsing a bunch (bosses wouldn't like that).

THey are going to rub like hell in the back because they do now with the +50 offset on my current wheels and the new ones are +40. I noticed the other day that it must have caught the fender lip on my tire and it pull about a 2" section outwards! I'm just going to cut the lip off with my rotary tool and paint the bare edge.

Well my track 16's did the same thing and I ghetto fender rolled it (warmed the paint, rubber hose slit in half and put over the edge and then used pliers). Watch out with the sharp lip, may slice the tire .
[/quote]

I hate to do it but I think that I am going to put my Toyos on these rims because they are 225/40 and my Dunlops are 235/40. When I get the extra money I will buy two 225/40 dunlops and stagger my tires with the smaller in the rear. I just don't know what else to do if they rub now and the new wheels are 10mm closer to the fender?

You have to get those on for the Surgeline meet!

I saw a tinted black mica speed3 with glossy black mesh wheels yesterday about 6:45pm. The guy was at the corner of Broadway and Grand talking on his cell phone. I drove right in front of him and nearly came to a complete stop in front of him while I was rolling down my window looking right into his face and he did not even acknowledge me!!! He looked like a tool anyways but he had a nice car!
[/quote]
Hmm, I wonder if that's the same guy who ignored me last week on SE Powell. Some people are in their own world and/or it's just a car to them. I've always been the type to try and tell someone "nice car". Only gas station attendants notice my MS6. Portland sucks. :p

Wed I think it was I saw a grey speed 3 on lombard heading towards the freeway passing 76 station around 8:30AM & today I saw a grey speed 6 on 185th around 11AM. oh & a regular white hatch 3 w/ gold wheels tried to race me today on walker... =} their car looked nice but umm.. c'mon dude, you regular 3 vs ms3? Why is it only regular 3's want to play? I never run into any speeds who acknoledge me. Sad-
[/quote]
I wonder if the Speed6 was one of the sales guys at Beaverton Nissan. If it is, it's actually his second MS6, as he flipped his first one on Skyline.

Saw a silver Speed 3 just off Burnside downtown yesterday around 7. I tell you, it must be the spring weather bringing them out.
[/quote]
I see a black Speed3 regularly on SE Powell (not Lincoln) and I saw two Speed6's in the past week. Unfortunately the Speed6 owners were driving with blinders on and didn't even look towards me.

Saw a red MS6 last Wednesday on McLoughlin it was missing an exhaust tip. Also regularly see a red MS6 82nd near the CLackamas Town Center.
[/quote]
Oooh, I have not seen them before. He probably either has the single exhaust CP-E or custom then. Last Friday I tried to catch up to a silver MS6 on 99E by Westmoreland to wave hello, but it was rush hour and traffic was too heavy.

Saw a white Speed 6 in SE PDX, just off Morrison, around 1:15. Was that you, Greg?
[/quote]
Nope. I haven't even seen another WWP Speed6 here in Portland.

I've seen the same black Speed 3 with dark rims in my neighborhood (near SE 39th and Division) three times in the past week. One time I think there was a kid in the back. Anyone?
[/quote]
I've seen that car a couple times.

There was a gray Speed 6 parked on SE 37th, just south of Hawthorne yesterday around 7. Anyone here?
[/quote]
That could have been Damir if it had black wheels with machined lip.

Over the past couple months I have seen quite a few Speeds. Today a black MS6 on 224 parked in front of the store Gun Broker(looked completely stock). A black MS3 along 224(looked completely stock). Spoke with a salesman at Car Toys on 82nd with a MS3. A purple MS6 on 82nd and parked at my work along 224. A silver MS3 with gold wheels and at least a corksport catback parked at the Clackamas Town Center multiple times. Umm I think thats all.
[/quote]
Seriously a purple MS6? Someone must have given it a custom paint job..... :shock:
