LC61892 - 2000 Titanium Silver over Imola Red

  • HOST Jon Martin, Fort Collins, CO
  • YEAR 2000
  • EXTERIOR Titanium Silver Metallic
  • INTERIOR Imola Red & Black Nappa
  • PRODUCTION February 17, 2000
  • RARITY 1 of 9

Long story short, I bought this coupe due to the color combo. I love it and the sunroof-delete made it even better! It's the only salvage title Project Coupe I've had so far, and I found that I enjoyed driving it even more because of it. It ended up with some great modifications incluiding Koni Sport/H&R suspension, Dinan exhaust, IE Subframe Bushings and Strong Strut front and rear bars.

It also gave my wife and I a great oppportunity for a cross country drive. We picked it up in New Hampshire, visited Rick and his fiance, had dinner in Maine, and added additional stops at Niagara Falls, Notre Dame University, downtown Chicago, and some of my old houses in central Iowa.
