    Drug it out to the SVTOA show on Sunday. It's always amusing watching people's "WTF" reaction.

    That car has everything right about it that the xr4ti had... but none of the weird bloated rear side profile issues. I really like it.

    That one will continue climbing I think. It was at $10k this morning, and already up to $15k. I would like to see some kind of documentation verifying 17k km. The odos are only 5 digit...I suspect it rolled over with the condition of the underhood plastics and the scraped/chipped paint on the spare tire area. Even at 117k km, I wouldn't be surprised if it hits mid $20s to low $30s. Nice thing about that one though is it's one of the first 2500 homolgation specials. And Mallard Green.

    I laughed when I read through the dealer description...it's obvious they have very little clue about the cars.

    Nice to meet you as well Tony. Sorry the car was so dirty...didn't bother washing/cleaning it at all since last weekend.

    I suspect it had a ridiculously high reserve and they may have been using ebay as a way to gauge market value for the car over here.

    Just a quick update. A few of you already know, the car has been down for a couple months...and will be for a couple more. The turbo shit it's self. Tax return I'll be sending the unit off to get overhauled, as the Cossie T25 have the DV incorporated into the turbo housing...meaning no extra plumbing that I would have to do if I wanted to run something different. She will hopefully be back up and running in the spring.

    Sure! Yeah, shouldn't be too bad. Probably a weekend once I have the rebuilt unit back in my hands.

    Rain prevented working on the GTi...so I turned my attention to getting the snail pulled yesterday. Now to figure out where I'm going to send it off too so I can get it put back in.

    The turbo is going to a friend that I forgot does a fair bit of turbo work.....mostly because he's alway got his NSX or one of his ITRs.

    After chatting with him last night, there is a good chance I'll have the turbo back in my hands by the end of April. My goal was to have it driving by the first part of May to get a few miles on it before the SVTOA show @ Griots on the 22nd. So it looks like we should be on track...for now.

    Updates? I didn't make it to the SVTOA show. Would love to photograph it the next time you have it down this way.
