    I just found out I'm be relocated for work and logically it just doesn't make sense for me to keep this car. It's been a fun 1.5 years owning it and a lot of work has gone into it.

    The car is registered and the title is in my name. It's SCCA log booked and was last stage run at Rally Colorado in 2009. The car bounced around a bit until it landed back in Denver when I bought it. I've since run local Rallycross events, with the right driver mod the car could be very competitive. I drive this car around town and to all my events. Recently I drove 2 hours to a race, went hard all day and drove 2 hours back at 75mph without any issues. I routinely drive the car to Denver which is about 160 miles round trip.

    Since I've owned the car, all services and work have been done by Sterling Autowerks. Sterling Chase is a very reputable European car mechanic and everyone's favorite hype man. I'll list what I can recall being done off the top of my head but if needed I can provided receipts and invoices.

    The car is a 83 VW Rabbit. It has an 16V swap out of a Scirocco, it originally had dual Weber 32 carbs, it's now converted to CIS, close ratio transmission with quaife front diff. Gutted, caged, fuel cell with kevlar bladder. Seats are fixed back Konig seats, belts are SABELT (expired). All gauges work, RPM, Oil Pressure/Temp, Volts, Coolant. Has a switch for Aux fan. The heater/fan still works, all turn signals work, LED headlights with high/low. Spare mounted inside above the fuel cell. The car will come with a car cover, OEM fender flares, 3 sets of tires: brand new Hankook Optima H724 on bottle caps, studded winters on bottle caps and a set of staggered summer tires (185 front 195 rear) on a set of silver Kosei K1's. Has fire extinguisher, medical kit, jack, warning triangles and tool box all mounted in the car. Oh and I have a Thule roof rack with keys!

    Hi, Just curious, do the modifications put you in P2 or M2, or do you stay in S2? Thx...

    Sorry for the late reply Mike. I run in M2, I'll be honest tho, I've never reviewed what dictates me to be in what class. I always just raced to race and never took it seriously. I figured with it being gutted, caged, motor swapped, fuel cell, that would be enough to put me into M2.

    Also, I REALLY need to move this car. Please someone make me a reasonable offer, I have till the middle of November and then I'm not sure what I'll do with it.
