The Story

This launched when I was in highschool and I've had a soft spot for them ever since. I had recently gone through a number of turbo 4 bangers, a sketchy N54, some HEMIs and at the time was looking for a clean 3K VR4 or FDrx7 but stumbled on this. Body was clean and aesthetically a stock car so I jumped on it. I made the mistake of buying the "it just needs a good tune" car. Now that it's 1/2 rebuilt, sorted out and re-tuned it made 389hp...
