I learned how to drive on a 2005 Toyota Corolla S. Anemic engine, automatic slushbox, but it got me from A to B without trouble. I never had a single problem with it while I owned it.

When I moved for work after college, I didn't need a car at all (and still don't!), so I held off, until 2020 when I came across a Dirtfish article about rallycross...

I saw humble honda civics and the like tearing it up at the Dirtfish campus, so I was determined that one day, I would bring my own humble commuter out to join them. I had heard of a slightly peppier version of my college car in the form the XRS, and by Spring of 2021 I had tracked one down.

~1 week after I had bought the car. I learned how to drive stick in this cemetary, on this car.

One of the first major modifications I had made to the car: a diamondplate steel skid plate. I was told it was the first thing to do when prepping a car for rallycross.

During Rallycross Fest, I bought some red, orange, and yellow duct tape and placed it across the car as a TRD stripe. It was a hit!
