Hello all!

Post by Scott779 » Sun Jan 27, 2019 1:06 am

Hello my names is scott, and im addicted to odd cars. I have just become the new owner of an 88 xr4ti. I have been on and off looking for 1, since i worked at a dealer 20 years ago or so, and the right 1 kinda fell in my lap. :headbang the old girl, will fit in perfectly with the rest of my oddities, in both rarity, and strange looks. Hope to learn lots! Thanks!
When in doubt, get a bigger hammer!
