      Unicorn - green t-5r wagon at ipd

      Saw this unicorn at ipd yesterday. Owner said he drove it from NY to OR after purchasing it recently. Perhaps this is already a known fact, but I felt worth sharing.

      Very cool, I've not seen one in person before. I forget how many were imported but I know they're quite scarce. How was the overall condition?

      Wow! I knew there weren't many. It really is a unicorn.

      A note in the car said 1 of 8.

      Condition was fair. Lots of exterior wear from its east coast life. Dark walnut interior trim on black/charcoal scheme. Appeared totally original. Only snapped this photo.

      This is shaun's car.....not quite as original as it looks. The wheels are from Tire Rack, it has a 16T with angle flange DP, and it's riding on Koni yellows and I forget what springs. It started life in CT and he bought it on ebay I think about 10 years ago. He drove it back to the west coast (I believe he was in CA at the time) and then brought it with him to Oregon.

      Still a way cool car though. I was trying to buy it before I got my yellow estate and my dad was also potentially interested until he bought his Frost Green V70 T5 SE last week. Remember all 13 of the green T-5Rs that were imported (and all were estates) were sold in the "US Northern" dealer region, so I would bet that the survival rate is pretty low compared to the other colors that were imported given the incredible obscurity and harsh climate in their native region.
