WOOT!

What color is that, special order color? I know Canada has some better options on the R than US. Get a JB4! I havent seen too many 17" wheels that fit over the brakes!

We did a single day turn-and-burn from Detroit to Harrisburg, PA to get this over the weekend.  It's Doug Strickler's old car for the OG's still around here.  1 of 50 99 LB's with a 2000R motor (that's currently blown).  Currently awaiting an RN swap and M66.  Can't wait to build it!

No idea - it was sitting at a shop in Harrisburg with a blown motor.  The shop was acting as the intermediary for the sale, it wasn't until he brought out the title for signing that I learned of who owned it.

It's a Spektrum color, 91 Blue.

It's the OEM winter wheel and tire package, can't even fit my finger in the gap between the caliper and the inside of the wheel.

Honestly this thing has enough power stock, I'm driving this alongside a 90 hp TDI and a 150hp Beetle so it's enough to get me in trouble.

It is called '91 Blue after all!:laugh:

Nice! So was this just a late '99 model that came with the 2000 R motor?

Nope, found an old turbobricks thread where the original owner discussed replacing the 99 motor with a 2000.

Yeah, they don't love these cars. I used to have a 740, so I'm kinda welcome over there! Hahaha
