    Hey all,

    Some of you might know me already (Tauni 0.o) depending on what boards you've been on, but I'm Tom, and currently drive a 2007 Mazdaspeed 3 GT. I picked it up last November and have been slowly modding it since then. Prior to the MS3 I had a black MSP with some light mods, bought off MNSC from another local. Most of my car history has been in turbo Mitsubishi (Conquest/Starion & 1G DSMs), though I've owned 19 vehicles overall and have dabbled in a few different platforms. I'm located in Eagan and drive to Chaska once or twice a week, so maybe you've seen me around.

    Other than cars, beer is probably my biggest passion. I homebrew on a simple setup, and do hard-cider and all styles of beer. Just kegged a double-IPA last night, and it's dangerously tasty at ~9% ABV. Anyone else homebrew?

    Here's a pic of MS3, minus the removed door-ding moldings and sans black-emblems:

    Realized there's a sub-forum for introductions, so I'm officially a retard. Good start :/

    If a mod wants to move it, feel free - otherwise, meh.

    LOL I'm Tom too- and I drive a 2007 Mazdaspeed 3 GT. Only mine is black. STRANGELY- I too dabbled in turbo DSM's, before Mazdas. Had a 1995 TSi AWD. If you know Spaz's old DSM, my car was a virtual clone of that. White on white.

    Also, never been into homebrewing, I'd quit drinking for the better part of a decade and only recently discovered I was able to do so again without a retarded hangover. Plus I live in an apartment. I'd probably be available for sampling that cider you make....not a huge fan of IPA's. Too bitter.

    Welcome! I received a home brewing kit as a gift a couple years back, but for some reason I've never gotten around to using it. If you've got any favorite brewing resources or info sites, post em up!

    Wait...did I sell you a car at one point?

    Thanks for the warm welcome, all.

    Right now, I use mostly for questions, then visit Norther Brewer's stores and ask stuff in person, if needed. I still use their recipes, although nowadays I usually tweak them a bit.

    Yes. That black 1g with a good motor, but trashed everything else. I was/am Kougar on DSMStyle/Mistustyle.

    Tauni I'm confused.

    That's right! Now I remember! How cool :) Yea the majority of that car was pretty much worthless, but hopefully you got some good use out of the motor!

    My fiance wants to know if you work in the business park that Tastee is in - says he sees a car just like yours on his way to work.

    Pretty much. It's not really a business park but moreso just a bunch of different places every block. I work at a shared building a few blocks from Tastee, and I usually park aiming against the road, so it's visible when people drive by. I'm sure it's mine he's seeing :)
