I sold my modded Z06 at a collector car auction over the weekend, and just couldn't keep my bid card in my pocket like a reasonable person.
Q: What does a guy buy when he gets bored of a 512rwhp Z06?
It's a little too teal for my taste, but that's why paint was invented.
Baja got back!
Gotta lose the jacked up Toyota seats and clean up the interior a bit. In InRich terms, this thing is fully loaded! 5 switches on the dash! High AND low beam headlights, wiper, washer, and a mystery switch! Fuel reserve tap under the dash as a beast this savage can't be weighed down with frivolous junk like a fuel gauge. No heater, seatbelts or sunvisors, as those creature comforts are for pussies.
It's probably the slowest car I've ever owned, but I can't wait to start driving it. I don't think a single other car I've purchased has put this big of a grin on my face.
Apparently it has a 1776cc engine, and a new full disc brake setup. I have no idea about any of the other parts as I don't know jack about VWs yet. It puked a main seal a few feet before the auction block (didn't help his selling price) and the seller is a big VW guy so offered to drop a seal in for the winning bidder. I can't wait to get the car home and start sorting it out and making it mine. With the flip hood and open engine bay, it looks to be so easy to work on, especially compared to the way everything was crammed in to the C5 vette. I'm actually excited to start turning wrenches on this thing, and being a VW, it will probably give me ample opportunity.

like fuck if I ever want a toy that has an engine. Bikes, sleds, quads, no fuckin way. I much prefer to get on a mountain bike and earn it like a man. Real toys don't have engines. "Motor" and "sport" should never be associated with each other if you ask me.
