Finally going to sell my baby. I have owned this car for 10 years in February. It was purchased from another CL member back in 2009. He built a clean car with most of the performance mods below and poured over $10k into mods (receipts on hand). I since added quite a bit to it - full mod list below.

Would love to keep it and fix her back up but just don't have the time or space. I hope to pass this on to another CL member who can take her back to 100%.

The car has a salvage title. Driver door, trunk and rear bumper are not original. The car was originally Black 202 and was re-painted the same color when the salvage was repaired. There is some existing body damage from a later hit and run while street-parked in the rear left quarter panel and front left fender. Front bumper and lip have wear and tear from street parking and when it was lower.

Runs really well as-is but will need new or rebuilt coilovers to run smoother. The engine and all else is solid - runs very well as a daily.

Additional parts: I have an authentic Vertex front lip and a 92-96 OEM style full carbon fiber spoiler I can sell with if interested.

Serious buyers only.
Will have it smog tested before purchase.

I'll be able to take some pics this Sunday and will add them. The timing belt was changed around the 90k mark - I'll confirm I have the records from the previous owner.
