Spring time jitters are back! Opened the garage up yesterday and felt the rush like I did the first time I sat in it... Bought it for myself as a birthday gift back in 2000 and can't believe it's been 16 years.
Next I was searching out pics of other quests online and ended up here!

So hello and here's what she looks like! I'll have more pics as I rummage through my computer or once I take it out and give some tlc

Hey there.
Yes that is a fiberglass cowl! I love that look.
I have seen that there are a lot of us in Ohio, although I've only seen a handful in person. I'm up near Lake Erie in a suburb near Cleveland about 30 minutes east.
I'm definitely going to check out DADs shop, I need a front caliper so I can take it back on the road. Had her out last year and the brake started rubbing. Luckily I was close but I put her away for the season and I'm itching to get her back out now.

Found it on eBay out of St. Louis back in 2000 and couldn't pass it up. I wasn't backing down and flew out to pick her up from the airport. I'll never forget hearing the turbo as she passed through the garage the first time I saw it and sitting in the drivers seat feeling the rush in my finger tips thinking "HOLY $%!#, she's mine!.. I was 19 and couldn't be more excited, learned stick on the drive home.
I've taken the best care of it that I could, goofed off a bit, had my fair share of tickets and then tucked her away and only drove it a handful of times each year. Never saw snow and was used only to drive to work for the most part. I've only had her in the rain a few times, looks like the day I bought it. I thought it would be cool to find the seller on here, I'm sure he misses it. I know I would!

Where about are you at Freebird?
Thanks for the compliments, makes me love it that much more!

Thanks guys, been a busy summer with a new start up business so I haven't had much time to stop in.
As things go now, I am going to sell the car... Breaks my heart but the kids have moved out, the wife and I want to travel so the car has been selected to sell...
I placed it in the cars for sale thread.
Anyone interested can send me a pm or contact me otherwise.
Not sure if I can write my email in here but I will check back.
Thank you,
Todd
