  1. He bought it here: look at photos https://carsandbids.com/auctions/3OgRYgAz/1989-chrysler-conquest-tsi
  2. Window sticker says “PV2 buckskin” Google it and it gives 2 references: ”Chrysler Light Buckskin PV2” ”Palermo Grey Metallic L83” So what we call Palermo, the window sticker calls it “PV2 Buckskin”
  3. We’ve determined buckskin is the paint code. The interior in that car is regular black.
  4. I think I’m right. buckskin is paint. paint code is “L83 Light Buckskin” for 1989….
  5. I think the “PV2 buckskin” is referring to the exterior. Not the interior. google “PV2 buckskin” and it pulls up paint codes. cause I have a window sticker that says “PY1 Yellow” in the same exact area. And it was for a yellow 88 Conquest.
  6. Dealer paid $5500 off FB Marketplace in December…..
  7. Nice 14yr bump. is Turbo Lab of America not taking in any new business?
  8. Doubt it’ll bring $25k. It’s a red 87. And the market is trending downwards….

    Red 87…..blah Plus, a dealer bought it. It’ll be flipped to some idiot who doesn’t follow the market closely….
  10. As awesome as the car was, and time invested, and all the effort……. Not having it in my garage doesn’t change how I normally spend my days. The impact of the lack of material things is much smaller than we anticipate….
  11. Even my kids said “dad, you should have cried for more views” It wasn’t too big of a deal. Simply time to move on. Did you watch the packing up video? I thought it might be kind of boring watching me pack a tote. But I thought SQ people might relate a little to some of the things I had saved…
  12. Only need $26k. Which is foolish considering I just spent $35k over the past 2 years for parts/labor on the swap…
  13. Listed the car on eBay today for visibility… https://www.ebay.com/itm/225852837285?hash=item3495e0cda5:g:96MAAOSwqftlRSZG&amdata=enc%3AAQAIAAAAwJOaqJS9cmuCHgOQf9Lhu4EbUdONClraVH6um9TF1tdPWxBMn0Vv2hNWRN3gB%2FOfvzOb2kcjpVE764DwM4Xe9vzF0wGEpjZb54evQsapEytZe%2BroxI%2B6EIDfq1in8A%2BloC5EhRXUNqIoUDTbgD3L%2FKZnQHQOZ%2Fy633XJhf34JgW3mN7ZAr2LdgjHanmKMyEJY3TQyOkpgO2xIeyNCSWgUEtG0ZdblNxUlF6496Emqjhl4qo3puULvvLAbTv9627Emg%3D%3D|tkp%3ABk9SR7CS1efyYg
  14. The wheels are fantastic. When highly polished and painted black inlays. That’s the best look….
  15. I’m just ready to move on. Been 14 years. Been eyeballing other cool cars. Things like C7 Z06s or Viper Gen2 GTSs. Maybe a VW dune buggy 4-seater for the wife and kids to enjoy with me as well. I’m glad I was able to get the car completed. It’s extremely fun, and gets ton of attention at shows and meets. And it’s plenty fast for me. But I’ve hit a wall where I refuse to spend another dime on it. I can’t justify another dollar on it after these 14 years. Just the past 2 years has cost me a stupid amount of money in parts and shop labor. But it’s done and I’m proud of the results.

  17. It’s a 24x36. So yes, plenty of room for 4 cars…. But I made the back half a hangout. And plus, I don’t need 4 toys. Having only 2 spaces keeps me from buying other cars. And it has an attic also where I keep totes of parts. So I can keep it pretty clean.
  18. I made the garage a spot for me and the boys to stay. And we spend most of our time in there rather than inside the house. I'm sure my wife enjoys the peace and quiet.
  19. And here was a super cool photo someone took with the sun shining down the side of it.
