History
Car started life as a 4 cylinder Lx, it was built in 1996-97, GT40 motor installed with a T5, 8.8 rear end and 3.73's. I purchased the car from a local gentleman who had the car for a dozen years, and put less than 10,000KM on the car, It is a low mileage car with absolutely everything swapped from a 92 GT, painted 93 vibrant red, and many cobra touches were added to the car over the years. Paint still looks new even though it is 20 years old. I put the cart before the Pony, and bought the turbo setup and numerous 5L goodies before I even found the car. I picked up the car is the summer of 2015, and It is going under the knife February 2016 (When I am back in Canada)
