Ready for cruising to Cars & Coffee or a pixelated synth sunset!

Since purchase in 2012, the car garage-stored and accumulated ~8k miles across VA, CT, PA, and NJ. I am selling because I no longer have the time & space for the hobby.

If something appears either missing or not stock, it is likely in our collection of new-old stock (NOS), genuine accessories, and spares. NOS and genuine accessories, if not included per this ad, are for sale at extra cost or negotiation.

This car is also listed in Facebook Marketplace.

AREAS TO ADDRESS
-----------------------------
-Front corners of rear wheel wells & lower-outer corner of driver-side footwell should be eventually replaced with cleaner metal
-No cold AC because the AC engine bay components were removed to accommodate intercooler & intake plumbing
-Despite having rebuilt & tested the climate controls via "diagnostic mode", air blows only when using "automatic over-ride" (from defroster vents).
-Car has steering bias under hard braking, though the brakes have been serviced, tie-rods/ball-joints/bushings were replaced, and drive is otherwise smooth
-Radio was removed to accommodate the battery kill-switch and AFR gauge
