    Here are a few pictures of my current daily driver. Pics are a little old but very little has changed since they were taken.

    It has a few mods done to it, mainly suspension via a rear Cobra IRS and different front springs/struts. Presently have the car parked due to a broken lifter and awaiting for my new intake to come in.

    Thanks, it is really hard to try to keep it nice looking due to the amount of driving I do and then just dealing with a black car. Here is a more recent picture of it that I had forgotten was online.

    Yes, it is authentic and the reason already stated would be why it is used for daily driving. Maybe if one day I find the right buyer for my other 92 then I can afford to turn this thing into a garage queen or if I could just win that lottery :bigthumb:

    what's your other '92? I got a '92 GT in '96 for my first car, sold it back in 2000 and I've wanted another one ever since. Got any specs/pics of it?

    It is a LX, bought it new in fall of 1991. Most of the parts on it are new and not used, it just sits in my garage and collects dust for one day when I might have some "free time". Here is a link that I believe has all the specs and up to date, might be off on a couple of items.

    Specs

    No numbers on it, I kind of got the run around the last place I went to to build some turbo headers for it so I am at the point of debating waiting to get the tooling to build some myself or maybe some other route. Definately not street legal unless you consider a pair of cats and a smog pump and a inspection sticker as street legal.

    with all the money invested why not spend a couple grand on a daily so that rare saleen can be kept low milage and mint also so no ass crashes into you.

    I actually do not have a ton of money tied up into that Saleen, I got it with 15k miles on it and have around 41k miles on it right now, I could actually sell it for what I have in it(including purchase cost and maint. cost since then) to give an idea of how good a deal I got on it. The plan has been to drive it this year then purchase another car at years end and drive it, that may not happen depending on my work situation though. The car I have a ton of cash tied up into is the LX and if I ever find a buyer for it I will end up losing a stupid amount of money on.

    Ah, well I am not spending any money on the LX for awhile now. I kind of want to get something fuel efficient like a TDI VW
