History
I bought it on my birthday in December of 2007 and trailered it from St Louis to Cleveland Ohio between two big snowstorms. After buying my wife a '92 Stealth R/T in Nov. '07, I went on the hunt to find me a 3s that had turbos and a manual trans. Mostly the car is the way I like it with only a few things I have on the change list. I picked up the rear widebody fenders and will get them mounted *sometime* in the future. I picked up a second hood for competition track days and am currently weeding out an overheating problem.
