History
Purchased in Feb. 2012 in Salt Lake City where it had just arrived after spending its life in San Francisco CA. It was my 6th SPG and I had been collecting rare parts for a long time to put them all on THE car. This was the one. The PO had done a lot of work himself and left a lot undone. Took about 6 months of constant work to get it running and tuned. Now she flies.
