I looked it over as best I could and had a close friend do the same but figured at worst I could part out the engine and trans for damn near what I paid.

Well, 2 weeks in itís been a very pleasant surprise (knock on wood). The car drives really REALLY. Chassis, suspension, drivetrain are all tight. The car tracks straight and has been a blast to drive.

Best part is I baby all my other cars (not driving in the rain, worry about every micro scratch etc) and with its title situation itís more stress free.

I plan to do a major fluids refresh and have Apex wheels and 255 square tires on the way.

Anyway, happy to be apart of this community now coming over from the 1M forum from a few years back (finally remembered my login).
Would love to see more pictures! I think this car will look great modded.

At 4 figures, you absolutely cannot beat that. Congrats and enjoy in good health.
