this car believe it or not was originally purchased new by my dad in 1987. he owned it for 6 years and took superior care of it before selling it to someone in 1994 who had no morals at all and destroyed it. the car ended up being donated to the american cancer society in 2002 and auctioned off to a junk yard where it sat for 3 years. it was then sold to a guy in 2005 who kept it in his garage but didnt do anything worth mentioning to it. thats when i came in. i got the vin # from my dad and did a car fax search for the car, ultimately finding it in shepherd michigan, 10 miles from where my dad lived when he first bought the car. i saved up my money, sold the car i had at the time and bought the lancer. amazingly the car still has all the paperwork in the trunk from when my dad owned it. it even has the original computer and set of foglight covers my dad bought new in 87 still in the plastic. currently i'm rebuilding the engine. its bored out .030 with new mp pistons. it has the stage 2 shelby computer in it, new fwd performance turbo, a reworked g head, k&n air filter, stock cam, and will have a bov mounted in the air box when its all done. i just installed a new McCloud clutch with a new mp flywheel. koni adjustable struts and shocks all around. i also installed a high flow cat and am soon going to remove the muffler and possibly install a flowmaster. the car is #92 and all the shelby stuff is there minus the front chin spoiler (if anyone has one let me know). when i graduate college i'm planning on restoring the car completely. I just nabbed a complete DEX-77 setup off ebay and the center cap i needed for my wheel. now all i need is the chin spoiler and she'll be back to original.

engine, little dirty, but still enough to waste a honda
