I cleaned house, slowing economy forced me to get rid of extra toy and extra cars, I have my RX7, the E46 and a Tacoma Work Truck (not pictured).

Getting ready for the really bad times coming.

About

Just sold to another car guy. Its going to a great home where it will be appreciated. I am gonna miss this car.
___________________

I bought someones finished project car. The car has new everything including a 3.6 swapped in. HP for this engine bone stock is 250HP but this engine has been tweeked a little.

After spending a rediculas amount of money on my RX7 project car, I knew I wanted another "daily driver" 80's sportscar but did not want another project.

I was looking for a 930 Porsche and finding lots of bad ones. I did some research and decided on an older 911 with a newer 3.6 liter swap. I found this one in Kansas City and after a succesful PPI, I flew up with my son and drove the car back, with a detour through the North Carolina Mountains.

I drive it as much as possible and try to keep it out of bad weather. It spends its summers in my Vacation home garage in North Carolina where I try to take it to the Dragons Tail as much as possible.

Car feel like a big engine pushing it down the road when you drive it. The best part? 30+MPG on the highway.
