    Car is not perfect, has some paint flaws and some underbody surface rust, but overall is very very clean. Many pictures to follow. I know the body mods are not for everyone, and to be honest, its radical look is part of the reason I am willing to part with her. I have found she looks a little to young for my tastes. But I will say, I have received more looks and compliments in the few months I have owned this car than in the other 14 years (and 15+ SHO's) of SHO ownership. A head turner for sure.

    Asking $5000.

    Also, car will be in St Cloud for the Convention, and delivery can be arranged anywhere between St Cloud/Chicago/Tulsa on way back from Convention.

    Open to any serious offers. Negotiable, as concerns modifications and how they would effect price.

    Toolman didn't change the look of the car. The previous owner to him had all the body work done.

    That and it'd be worth it just for the projector housings to stuff HID's into properly.

    What is the mileage? And is price still negotiable if I have to come 650 miles to get it? Also, does it come with a stock diff? And pics of engine bay, interior, and underbody would be nice. I may be interested. Thanks.

    I'm new to the community, but I'm glad to be a part of it. I've always loved my grandfather's 90 and 93 atx (which he bought new), and I'm excited to have my own now. :) I will give Tim a magniloquent review when I have a bit of time to write it.

    Ooo... Tachyon, where are you at? Come join the SESHO FB page. We're going to go run Little River Canyon in Ft. Payne in a week with some car groups from Huntsville.
