I had this car list for sale a few years ago, but i had some motor issues shortly after. The set up has changed a lot since then. I purchased everything new all over again. All parts now have less than a few hundred miles on them.

The car is located in Tampa Florida right now. In a month or so, it will be back in Maryland.

Im asking $40k or best offer. I have well over $75k in receipts from the last three years.

Pictures will be up shortly. Im 1500 miles away from the vehicle, so if you request pictures of certain items, it is going to take me a few weeks.

Hasn't been to a track in years. Ive only seen the car a handful of times in the past two years. It's time to move on.

Maybe if you could enjoy it, you'd keep It.

The transmission you have, is that the one from her car that got stolen and stripped or did she change to a different one before it was stolen?

Ah i didnt know if parts were ever found. I remember they found it fully stripped which sucks cause that car had a lot done to it.

Why do all that work just to turn around and sell it?  Why take such a loss money wise?  You don't drive it now, but potentially in the future you will. Keep it.

I've had the car since 2010. You've never lost interest in something? If I was trying to get the most money back, the car would be getting parted out right now. I work 45 plus weeks out of the year on the road - I've only seen the car a handful of times in the last 5 years.
