I've been dreaming about building/owning one of these since I saw one while in college in 1991. It took me 20 years but It's now a reality. Thanks FFR and the guys on this forum for helping me along the way.

FFR #7018 is a complete MK3.1. The engine is a bored out 5.0 EFI with Edelbrock performer heads and a Cobra SVO intake. IRS with pin drive suspension and Vintage Halibrand wheels and Mickey Thompson tires and a T-5 transmission. I installed a heater and seat heaters and an iPod stereo in the cockpit along with many other options.

Arrived from Stewart Transport 9/11/09
Basement finished 3/14/10 (it was part of the deal...)
Rolling chassis 4/4/10
First start 2/4/11
Licensed 5/27/11

My wife was awesome through the whole dreaming, planning and build stage. The best part is when I get home from work, she says "Let's go for a ride".

Congrats! Great job on the build. Love the fat 15's and for some reason, those colors :)

Enjoy driving her in a beautiful part of the country.

Very Nice! You cant go wrong with that color combo. I noticed your original 65 license plate... I want one! (great addition to a perfect build). Nice photography as well. I hope to see your car in person some day at a local event.

Doug: Congrats on the build! Looks like you have two "keepers", the wife and the car. Go and enjoy before the snow starts.
