My Story

My Names Matt Turbitt, most call me Turb. As a July birthday I felt this was a fitting month to enter. I First got into 3000T's when I was 16. It's crazy to think it has been over 5 years since I bought my first 3000GT. Over the years 100's of hours and plently of blood, sweat, and tears have gone into my pride and joy. A 91 3000GT VR-4 with 66,000 original miles. Some may recognize the car as Shiver's old car and was used to create much of the data logging software we all currently use today. I bought the car in March of 2008 and it's been a great ride ever since!

This is what it looked like the day I brought it home.

What it looks like today.
