Hi again everyone,

After selling my moderately modified 141/1000, I vowed to return with a more stock example. After months of searching I landed 886/1000, a Belize Green 1992 w/ sunroof option in absolutely stock factory condition. Not everything is perfect, but that's how I like them.

The Good:
-"Only" 158k miles
-Completely stock w/ dealership window sticker
-Drives wonderfully

The Bad:
-Every (and I mean every) body panel has some ding or deep scratch
-Competition clutch that is super chattery and way too stiff for a stock GVR-4
-Differed maintenance to the max and hunting idle

The plan is to restore the car back to its former glory and factory specs. Body work is going to be a major cost factor here. I plan to take care of all the maintenance...TB + WP, all seals, gaskets, etc. Super pumped to be back into a Galant VR-4 and can't wait to start wrenching on it.

Thanks. I wasn't too color picky on this...but Summit White and Belize Green are my favorite color options.
