      re: F-production VW GTI Rabbit with about 100 first place wins in both regional and national race meetings. (also eligible for Vintage SCCA)

      I'm not sure where to start...I'm bearing down on 60 years old...time to let someone else win. The suspension is hand built all spherical bearings(no rubber bushings), springs dialed in with Bilstein coil overs, triangulated rear axle. On board halon fire system, 8 gal ATL fuel cell, Kirkey seat with glass hood, tailgate and lexan windows. Car weighs in at 1800 lbs. The engine was built by Shine Racing 190+ HP on the dyno, forged pistons and rods. Cyl head by Rick's Engineering, 16 qt Dry sump oil system, Canton-Mecca accusump, hand made intake manifold with dual side draft 45 DCOE Webers, hand made vortex aluminum induction and hand built alum dry sump pan by Moroso. Wheels are 13 lbs with Hoosier 23x10x15 slicks.

      I cannot believe you're selling this, to this date, this rabbit is the nicest I have ever seen... and I've been to a few car shows... Good luck with the sale, are you building a new one, or are you not racing still?

      Mark,
      What are your plans after selling the car? Are you getting out. I have video of the car when it was still in ITB. Its a shame you are selling it, hopefully it goes to a good home.

      Congrats guys.
      Looking at the state of GP this year, we are starting to think about dropping a 1.8 in the orange rabbit and moving to F in the future.
