Hey all! Iíve been meaning to post here, but life has a way of moving along. Back in June I flew down to GA to drive home a 2007 slicktop Titanium Grey over Nordkap GT V70R, and Iím in love.
Iíd been (as all of us have at one point or another) browsing car sites for VRs, and happened upon a listing for a car down in GA Ė the front end looked a little worse for wear, but the price, mileage and options were right. I chatted with the guy and got him to lower the price a little, and I was in. I enlisted a friend and flew down sight unseen, handed the Ford Diesel mechanic who had bought it from an auction $7500, and away we went.
I tracked down the original owner (Iím the 2nd) and it turns out he had taken delivery in South Korea, and later brought it to the states Ė apparently the only VR ever delivered to SK according to him. He had traded it in on a Tesla, and when we talked, he was happy it went to someone whoíd take care of it.
Here's a shot of it next to my 2.5T which lives with my brother now, and another with @ZZZZZZZ's 2007 VR.
I'm especially hype because it has parking sensors + the RTI screen, which I wouldn't be able to easily retrofit, but doesn't have premium audio, which is a relatively easier job! See my junkyard haul from the other day below...I also picked up premium tweeters when I was helping my brother grab a premium system for his 2.5T the other day.
I'll be posting about stuff I'm doing to it periodically, just happy to be daily driving my dream car It's currently got 140k on the clock, and I fully intend to drive it as long as I can, between FCP parts and junkyards I anticipate it'll be a while!
