BRG with matching hardtop, tan interior, 208,000+ miles, runs great. This car has been my daily driver and autocrosser for many years, then was developed into an SCCA STS racer. It's a lot of fun! Very stable, not particularly fast but will give you all it's got every time out. If you have been running with VMSC over the last few years you have certainly seen my car. We run the BIG yellow #3 and #8 when we compete. Check some of the photo archives, David's photos are great.

The Good Stuff

Lowered with Eibach springs and KYB shocks.
Racing Beat 7/8" front sway bar with adjustable end links.
Racing Beat Urethane bushings in all suspension parts - very stiff.
Boss Frog "Clearview" roll bar...uuhhh...never been used!
BFG Rivals 205/50/15 new for 2015 season.
G-Force performance chip. Helped a little especially in the mid range.
Racing Beat intake and header. WOW! You get what you pay for, these really work.


The Other Stuff

AC removed, brackets, hoses and all other hardware. Didn't work anyway.
Cruise control removed. It was pretty crappy to begin with.
Rear sway bar removed. Allows the rear suspension to work better and it does.
Paint is DEAD. Looks OK when wet or if it has recently been waxed.
The ride is stiff! You'll want to dodge all bumps and holes but you'll never have to fret about kidney stones.
The wheels are old American Racing alloys that are kinda heavy and real square.
The seats are the original leathers with speakers. Real heavy.
The stereo is still there but the door speakers were removed after being abused by Zepplin, ZZ Top, etc.
The power windows work but they are heavy and need to be swapped for manual wind ups.
The stock radiator leaks ...again. I've replace it twice already.

All in all it's great little car. Often competitive in STS but can't keep up with those 2000lb Miatas. I'm asking $4000 for one you can get in, drive to the event, race and drive home. A bit more development and this car could kick ass. Can be seen in archive photo files or at the next autocross October 11. If interested please call John Peddy @ (804) 937-2685.
