Hi peoples. Just wanted to take a moment and introduce myself. Names Franchi and live in Columbus Ohio. Looked around but didnt see a specific thread for intros so there is one and I just missed it, I apologize ahead of time.
Slingshots first caught my eye when they came out but then decided to wait a bit as had enough projects going on and life / young kids / full time career job on top of running my own side business always takes time and energy but thankfully, that wait is over now!
Just picked up a 2015 base model SS with 15k miles for a great deal locally (I knew the owner prior and he was just happy to sell it to somebody who would enjoy it as much as he did) And I specifically wanted a base model as it will just be a blank canvas for me to work with and it wont stay stock for very long.
I have only logged a few hundred miles but it is already my favorite vehicle I've owned....and I've had quite a variety of fairly fast vehicles I've built over the years (twin turbo f-150 which is my current daily for winter months, head/cam build 13 Charger RT which is my non winter daily, departed Procharged 06 Mustang GT, list goes on and on). And while the SS isn't the fastest I've ever had, it is by far the most pure fun to drive / ride in. And for sure gets the most attention whenever you drive it...
No idea what my plans are for the vehicle yet, I'm going to keep it fairly stock ish for about a year while I figure out the build before I start and get a good feel for everything as it is a completely different platform then I accustomed too but already have a few goodies on the way from Sling Mods so yay for that!
I will be poking around the site, researching stuff, educating myself and jumping into a few discussions here and there. Thank you for having another SS newbie on board.
