my new beater....ricerdom here I come!!!!

well, I happened across a deal that was too good to pass up last week. I went to the junkyard looking for some parts and on the way there my buddy and I came across a car that was sittin on the corner for sale. We stopped and asked the price and we got all giddy.

It's a 95 eclipse with 193786 miles on it right now. Factory sunroof, grey leather, power everything, 5 speed. It had some damage from a left front incident. It was rebuilt with a reconstructed title. Remember......... It's my fun beater car.

Now, why would I buy this old pos??? 2 reasons:

$1,400

It's a GS-T

That's right. Factory turbo.

So, my focus can sit in the garage and stay nice now. Picts later on today. I gotta get this ricer front bumper off HAHA. YES it has primered parts on it but I gives a DAMN when that snail spools up and PSHHH.

Eat your heart out ken

Those cars are not rare at all, with that many miles you got ripped off I sold my 91 tsi that had a fmic all hard pipes, ram air intake, gauges and the 14b turbo and 6 bolt block that comes stock with 1g's and it only had 60k miles on it for 2k. Don't mean to rain on your parade you will have fun with the car just be carefull with that 7 bolt there crank walk prone.

Nah, it's a good lil car. I know about crank walk and skipping timing. Thehead was redone because of that very recently. It will be a great beater after a tuneup.

Its black btw. It is a beater, and it looks the part with it's primered hood, fender and bumper LOL.

It will gimme a chance to learn more about them. Always wanted a black one:)
