    Hello All,

    Update 6/19/2020: I have only driven the car a handful of times in the last couple years. I am ready to move on

    SOLD! Price Lowered to 8k

    I have considered parting the car out and putting back to stock and/or stealing some of the parts for my other cars. However, I would like to see if there is a market for the car as is.

    I bought the car running and driving out of London, KY in 2013 with 90k original miles. Since then pretty much everything short of the transmission and driveshaft have been replaced. The title is clear and it just rolled over the 100k mark. There is evidence that this was a SSP car out of Georgia.

    The car runs good, I have daily driven it for up to a week when the weather permits it. I have not taken it to the track. This is a great running and driving project for someone to continue. I have just gotten to the point where I needed to spend another $20-25K to take the car to the next level and would rather use that money elsewhere.

    I have a binder full of receipts totaling $11,000 of parts that I have purchased. Mods with a * indicate I have the receipt.

    It was dyno tuned at Blankenship’s in Louisville and made a tad over 400rwhp at 6psi. Since then I upgraded to the AEM and have not dynoed the car since but estimate its closer to 450rwhp. I do have a smaller pulley that will come with the car.

    I have never taken the car to the track or launched it.

    Known Issues:

    -The interior needs to be put back together. I have most of the interior panels. I have a set or black coupe rear seats. I do not have carpet for the car.

    -The car grinds going into 3rd gear under WOT. There is an intermittent drivetrain vibration in high rpm.

    -The gas gauge is the only operational gauge in the cluster. It is not compatible with the AEM. I was going to buy a racepak, but never got around to it

    -The heater was bypassed in the engine bay. This was done when I bought the car so I am assuming the heater core was leaking. I have not tested this theory.

    -A previous owner decided to put a small hole through the firewire to run a battery cable. It is in front of the pedals

    -The cowl was bent in from a hood flying up at some point. I had plans of doing a full replacement but never got around to it. Some filler was used and it was painted black. There are also two dents on the roof from this tragedy.

    -The hood is an OEM piece painted black.

    -The paint is old. Where this is believed to be a SSP car, it looks like someone did not do a complete respray, only the white areas were painted blue. Depending on your tastes, it could need a complete new paint job.

    -The Eibach rear sway bar never fit correctly with the off-brand rear lower control arms that came with the car.

    -Dent in passengers side skirt

    -This past winter (2020), I noticed a small antifreeze leak from the radiator area. The lower radiator hose was super loose and was tightened. I havent really noticed it since, but its possible there is a small pin hole in the radiator

    In summary, it has been a fun project and is a great driver since installing the AEM. With the suspension upgrades everything feels tight and it handles great. It is a lot of fun on the street and would be a great project for someone to drive and work on.

    I also have a cabinet full of misc stock, new, and spare parts that will be included with the car.


    Again, the price is $8,000 OBO. I am not interested in trades, but may consider a Gen 1 lightning

    I can be reached via PM or email TreyQ63 at yahoo. I am located in Lexington, KY.
