Default Just Got a VR4 with 27.8K!

Could not resist, found a 1997 Pearl White VR4, Stock and mint! Car ran awesome. I have had the transmission and drive train inspected and fluids changed. Don't have much faith in a 16 year old timming belt so it gets a water pump and timing belt today. This makes 3000GT #4 I have owned and 3 of them are still here! I have a 56.5K 1995 black Spyder VR4 up for sale on E bay. Thought I would reduce down to two.

Looked at your Spyder for sale on Ebay, very nice car but I had to laugh at one of the pictures of the rim/tire because in the reflection, sure as hell, you're barefoot! LOL!

The Barefoot is for Barefoot Water skiing. You will see both of the boats in one picture or the other, one in the garage one on the lift. Tried to keep my fat A$$ out the pictures! I will post pics of the new Ver Fir when she gets back from her required maintence. The 97-98's are really hot looking. Put that car next to any car.

This one came out of orlando. Real close to home. Just took it from transmission shop to general maintenance shop for a timming belt and water pump, can't wait for her to come home and stay. I'l post pics of a 16 year old timing belt.

Great find... don't know if I would be selling the Spyder though.

Make sure they change the hydraulic tensioner, because those are actually more prone to failure than the timing belt... and I would suggest only use OEM or a GREAT quality aftermarket.
