Some of you guys might remember a while back when Anthony (oldman tau) originally put 1837/2000 up for sale, but then decided not to sell it. I told him if the day ever came and he changed his mind, to let me know. Well, last July, Anthony gave me a call. Shortly after, 1837/2000 was mine. After a long wait, I finally got it shipped cross country here to the East Coast. It's nice to have a VR4 in the garage again. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I have always loved this car. It is incredibly clean. It's nice knowing its still in very good hands. And those wheels /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/worthy.gif

It's even my favorite combination, Summit White and non-sunroof.

Thanks for all the kind words guys. I feel pretty lucky to have such a nice example. I wish I could take credit, but it all goes to Anthony, who truly did a great job on this car.

It will get driven for pleasure mostly, but since it arrived it has been hard to stay out from behind the wheel. It runs flawlessly, and I don't want to do anything to take away from that. The car does need some TLC, and I have already begun to do some mild upgrades. To start, the car needs a clutch. I'm going to replace the transmission and whatever other drivetrain components I find that need some love. The car grinds ever so slightly going into 3rd unless you really baby it. If any of you guys have a clutch, flywheel or good working transmission, let me know.

I installed ECMlink V3 last Friday, but other than that I've just been cleaning and assessing. So far so good!

Edit: Clutch seems to be ok.

No, I would have loved to keep both 1813 and my GST. Selling them came down to logistics really. When I moved to Florida from California, I had to pay to get both 1813 and my GST shipped to Florida. Shipping 2 cars cross country wasn't cheap. On top of that, I purchased 1837 while I was still in Florida. So I had 3 cars in Florida with me, and then another in San Diego, for a grand total of 4 vehicles. To top it all off, I had another cross country move from Florida to Maryland looming ahead, and had to figure out what the hell to do with all of my cars. Paying to ship 3 vehicles was out of the question. End result, 1813 and the GST had to go, and shipping 1837 from California to be put on hold until I arrived in Maryland.

I meant are you planning on driving it in the salt?

If you drive it during nice days in the winter, there would still be leftover salt on the roads. Smart ass /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Although you and I don't really get along, I can't read through this thread without at least commenting on how nice of a car that is. I've always liked the way Anthony built that thing and took care of it.
