#931 while it was being parted out:

Pulled the complete engine/trans/suspension/steering in one shot out the bottom.

#931 went to the scrapyard on 1/4/2010 as an empty unibody shell. Just about every useable part will end up on another VR4. In the end, the car was a "Total Mileage Unknown" title with over 200k actual miles and had body damage on every panel w/ typical clearcoat FAIL. It wasn't worth the cost to restore vs starting with a better vr4 shell.

GVR4 #139/1000: T3T4: [email protected] - 14B: [email protected] (sold)
