I will be as transparent as possible with the car.  From some of the pictures you will see this is NOT a garage queen.  It is a car to be enjoyed.  There are some scratches and small dents around the car that show that.  When rolling the driver side fender, there seems to be some small damage.  If you would like additional pictures, please feel free to ask.  I will also update a walk around and driving video soon.

When I received the car, buying site unseen, the car was in need of a head gasket.  I am the type of person that has problem with "while we are in there" syndrome.  I opted for a cut ring head gasket and copper spacer + ARP head studs because it allows for added boost in the future.  There would be no problem installing an OEM head gasket but that isn't how I do things.  If I can think of any additional items, I will update the list.

This coupe is full of fun stuff including a turbo. It's also the first time I've seen a set of SSR GT3s in a while which I have always liked. You couldn't build one like this very easily for the price, so the price seems alright with me.
