Hey everyone,

My name is Derek and I just purchased 148/1000 from drifter148. It was in an accident in 2008 and has been in the garage since then. She needs a partial front clip replacement (getting that from 100/2000, its only non-rusty area) and hope to have this up and running by the shootout. Super-clean otherwise. I hope to learn a bunch on the VR4's (I used to have a 92 Talon AWD, but sold it a few years ago). My username may be familiar as I am the oldest of THOMCASEYs sons. We now have 5 GVR4's in the fam, bit it will be parred down to 4 once 100/2000 is dismantled. 148's interior is super clean, as is the rest o the car. She also came with a complete ORIGINAL drivetrain with less than 1600 miles on the rebuild of the ORIGINAL motor. Has working AC, cruise and a leak-free AWS system. Less than 98k on the chassis. Fortunately, we already have fenders, bumper and hood on hand.

A few pics of the car:

Fortunately the damages area is in front of the strut towers. Will be a first for us in this type of restoration.

Welcome and another congrats. When you get her buttoned up, you guys should do a family video of these cars.

Here is another family that owns the same cars, do something similar.

Hey Mark, you’re still a whipper snapper, you haven’t earned the right to feel ‘old’ yet lol.



Getting old sucks ... but it sure beats the alternative !!!
