Wow! How does one go about looking at what is for sale if they cant see it? I have nothing to post or comment about because I don't own a car. I want to buy a car but I can't see what is for sale. The "internet police" sure worked out the perfect solution. Oh well, craigslist and the thefactoryfiveforum here I come.
I've been lurking for a few years, and made just a few posts, but now it looks like I'll have to make a couple more before I can see the classifieds. Building a GTM (or 818) is on the list for when I retire, and I just like seeing how other people are building their cars.
First car I wanted to build was a FFR Roadster. Got a ride in a couple - one FFR mk3 with a Procharged 5.0, one Shelby "continuation" with a 427 SO. Great cars, but I figured I needed something I could drive when it rains.
Daily driver is an 02 Miata with an FMII turbo, about 242 rwhp in a 2400 lb car. When compared to a Roadster, it has similar performance with the benefit of roll-up windows and a top. So, I started thinking GTM, something a bit more different than a Miata.
Got scared with the GTM (bodywork mostly), still on the list of possibilities, but I realized my current lifestyle doesn't give me enough time to dedicate the 2k hrs to build the car in a reasonable timeframe.
So that brings us to today - the 818 is looking great! I like the turbo approach (especially living at altitude), and look forward to seeing what the street/coupe version will look like. With minimal bodywork (compared to the GTM), the 818 will probably be a better choice for my first build.
OK, sorry for that, I've got 10 posts, should be able to track the classifieds now!
