History
I first fell in love with this platform in 1991. A neighbor had a '91 R/T TT in mystic blue that I would see from the window of the school bus. Fast forward a few years to 1999 when I was 18 years old and I picked up my 1995 3000GT DOHC base model. I owned "Kimber" from 1999 until I sold her in 2012. During that time she was involved in a very long TT project that only truly wrapped up just a week before she was sold.

I purchased the '99 VR-4, "Quorra", in 2010 from GZP with 58K original miles. Car was 100% stock.

She was previously in an accident with the original owner in the winter of 2009. Frame damage was "repaired", not by GZP. I flew up to Pennsylvania picked her up and road tripped the car back to Texas. She drove great.

Soon after, put her on our local mustang dyno at PRT Performance to get a stock baseline.

In 2012 took the car down to go from stock to not with a 19T HL with supporting mods build. While we were in the car, found the reason GZP was so adamant about stating that they did not do the frame repair. It was done horribly. Cut off some of the front end of the car and repaired her properly. Here is a time lapse video of the build.

Soon after the build was completed, a coworker decided to back into my car while at work. This prompted a full repaint while remove any dent and ding on the car. Wanted to stay pearl white but went with a little different by using the Lexus Starfire pearl.

I still need to get her on a dyno, estimated between 450 - 600 awhp on E85.
