With too many cars it is time for this car to go and make room for my wifes Audi wagon track car. It was formerly owned by a fellow alfabber that spared no expese on it. I am motivated to sell it and can swap out the front seats to some Recaros that are not quite as nice to bring the price down. The car comes with a set of wine glass factory wheels and phone dial factory wheels both sets of tires need to be replaced, but do have a set of star spec 1's that can be mounted on the set desired. The car will also come with a ton of spare parts. The car is currently up on craigslist with photos. The paint is worn, but makes it a great car that you car rally without being too concerned about collecting scratches.
The previouse owner removed the wheel arches and I have to say that I like it much more this way. The interior is incredibly clean and the seats are near perfect. The exterior does have some scratches and slightly failing clear coat on the roof. I am keeping the Ronal A1 rims and the car comes with the original stock wheels. For the right price I might sell them. The car also has Euro bumpers. The car just passed smog here on Friday, but might not if it goes to an area that has enhanced smog with the cams that are currently in it. If you are in one of these areas the car will be sold as is.
Mods are as follows:
Richard Jamison cams.
Platnum limited slip short box that was gone through less that 5000 miles ago by Phil Mason who has also done all of the work on this car
BMW air flow meter
large fuel injectors
27 mm torsion bars and sway bars
Rear red sport spings
Koni and Bilstiens
Magnaflow cat and center muffler

Car has 165,000 miles and does not smoke and passed smog with fling colors.
RJ cams installed
Rear rotors and pads

Rebuilt 4.10 LSD Trans
Bumping this up. Went over the hill to Aptos to meet Aaron and check out the Verde. He took me for a drive and the car is just so nicely sorted. From the passenger seat it felt firm and handled very well. Nice acceleration too. The Recaros are pretty much mint (really most of the interior is). Paint is a good 5-footer re spray with a bit of clear coat dandruff on the roof.
Definitely well sorted mechanically, and would make a nice driver that you would not worry about racking up the miles on. Maybe he'll hold it for me until family is fully relocated to CA.
Nice to meet another enthusiast and cool guy. His GTV6 is a wicked little thing, too.
