This coupe was unique in that the previous owner offered to drive it to me; all the way from Pennsylvania. It worked out well. He got one last road trip, and I got free shipping. I was specifically looking for an estoril Project Coupe this round as I had managed to never have an estoril blue Project Coupe before. While in my possession, I will say that I now understand all the excitement over the color. It really is beautiful in person, and I got a lot of compliments on it when I had it out and about.

It was always well taken care of by enthusiasts and had nice upgrades like IE subframe bushings, Shark Injector software, and a UUC short shifter when I received it. It also had a pretty good maintenance history. Most of the projects were maintenance odds and ends to address aging parts rather than to fix anything that was previous broken. Those are the best kinds of projects.

The new owner is taking it to the next level with coilovers, exhaust, projector headlights, and I'm excited to see what else.
