if its cheap and he used proper EMS and tuning (ie the car is running safe), I think its not a bad buy. You can sell most of the supercharger junk off and get a turbo and drop it in place! you will already have most of the piping done and it looks like he has an oil line going down past the thermostat (another thing to check too).

One thing that really annoys me is the rivits on the front bumper. What the ---- was he thinking there?

its a half cage. which is a bit ironic considering the stock passenger seat and the full carpeted interior!

The tie rods are for doooriiiifto!

Car has/had abs. And it has non-stock knuckles i think.

I wouldn't eliminate it, but I would definitely not plan to pick it up as a daily.

comes with the rims in the first picture.
hard top has oem latches up top and is bolted on the side.
for the price of the car, like i said, it's a good deal.

not knowing the price and just looking at the pictures, what would you think the price of the car would be? gives me a more accurate sense of actually a good deal or me just wanting it to be a good deal

sportmaxxes look okay. too bad not the u6ls.

I like the tiens and the custom tie rod ends.

just needs a real man's power adder and a real man's engine managment.
