I purchased this car in 2000. I have taken great care of it, always garaged. In 2002 I added a Comptec Super Charger, Racing suspension and custom Stainless Steel Headers which makes a terrific difference in this car. I did drive it in 3 Auto Crosses. I would feel comfortable driving this car across the country as it always starts and runs, never has broken. Also has racing transmission, lower 1st, 2nd, 3rh and 4th gears. 5th gear is the same as standard.
