I walked past my stored bugeye tonight and opened the door just to have a peek inside. To my pleasant surprise she still has the new car smell after 9 years. I thought for sure it would have gone away. God I love that smell. :)

It could happen. Though, she's semi permanently stored at this time. Engine fogged, no fuel, no battery, etc etc. I realized a while back that I no longer had time for her, but my wife forbid me from selling her (I bought her 2 weeks after I met my wife). So some day 20 years in the future my son will probably be driving his dads vintage near perfect WRX to school to impress his friends, sit on the hood, and bang into curbs.

Haha amen to that my friend, maybe he will learn the value of a good thing from his father before he has the chance to ruin that beauty! :)

Bo demands pics! Or Ban!
Unfortunately I just have the same old boring pics taken circa 2004/2005. It still looks the same considering it's only accrued maybe a few hundred miles since. If I took a pic now, you would just see dust ha ha.

So you purchased this car when it was brand new and stored it soon after? I would love to do that with a car one day! My dad tells me stories about cars he had in the 70s and if he would have kept them they would be worth tons!

I think it's great that you're willing to pass it on to your son one day!

Close. The story is a bit complicated, but the end result is the same. She's an 03 Sedona red bugeye. I've owned her since '03. I don't recall the exact mileage on her, but it's somewhere around 8k. I don't know if I would pass it on to my little guy when he's young for fear of it getting destroyed, but maybe later on in his life.

Andrew is glossing over the massive number of hours that he put into bringing that car back from the dead...

Beautiful.Is that the OEM color or a custom paint job?
That's a factory color. They only offered it in very limited numbers.

Fortunately so much time has passed it's a long distant memory. My memory has now reduced the work to a couple days ha ha.

You took a smashed-up (trainwreck?) frame and jigged it up to return it to better than factory, IIRC. Bodywork, VF34 upgrade, suspension...

You should bring it back to life for a good wingless job
