I originally picked this car up to be a daily driver a few years back. (No, seriously..) At the time, I had a 90 Talon TSi/AWD that I had built up pretty nicely, but wanted something 4G63 powered that was a bit more "civilized" on the road to putter around in. After selling #1954/2000 in a fit of extreme stupidity many years ago, I kept an eye out for a good deal on another GVR-4. I found this one in Colorado off of this board and drove up there with a buddy to pick it up. I really did intend to keep things simple with this car, but as you can see with the mod list below, that went out the window pretty quickly. I daily drove it for a year or so until I eventually sold the Talon. Which meant that a lot of the parts from that car found their way onto this car. With just one project car darkening my driveway and garage, things soon got out of hand. Well that and a overseas deployment or two that provided the cash for the JDM makeover, paint and bodywork. I love Uncle Sugar! Obviously, it'll never be "done", like most project cars. I've still got more planned for this thing. I just need some time, money and motivation.

Anyway, enough with the long winded diatribe. Here's my monument towards continued financial instability in all its Internet glory.
