Re: Purchased today!

Was that the one in Ventura? Unfortunately, I never saw it around town, but the eBay description sounded good.

Congrats!

Re: Purchased today!

Yes it was the ebay auction in Ventura. I had talked to him on the phone. He told me what his reserve was, and what he really wanted for it and I had to go. Got up at 4a.m. to drive up 3 hrs to see it. Never seen one in person. Never driven one. Saw it, Drove it, bought it. I will need your guys help trying to figure out all the stuff it has and can do. He was a dealer who bought at auction not knowing anything about it. He was just looking to make some quick profit. He could not tell how most of the stuff works! Drove nice. Seems tight on the freeway. Drove 170 miles averaging 75. It got 16 mpg. Engine stayed nice and cool. Had no problems with the hills in that area. Felt a little pulsing when braking. Will add wider tires, slotted rotors and new shocks and all should be good. Surprisingly my wife is thrilled. She loves it.

Congratulations, looks like a great SMB. I guess you no longer need to see someone else's SMB in San Diego now .

Re: Purchased today!

That one looks familiar..... Congrats

...HA... I am betting there could be plenty of volunteers from this group to help share the beer.
(but it is a long haul from Austin)

Re: Purchased today!

I am going through a bunch of paperwork, manuals that he gave, and I notice the original owner who bought in 01 lives 2 miles from me. Homecomming of sorts!
