History
2 previous owners; 1st unknown, the 2nd a motorhead/auto detailer from NY; he had big plans for the car but sold it before really getting going. when i bought it, it had the GS open air intake and a Forge diverter valve; these little mods inspired me to pick up where he left off; no accidents per carfax when i south it, but it did catch the a blow from a big falling branch in March 2016, which led to a new hood, windshield and dash
