Cat’s out of the bag on fb

Flying to SLC and driving this home on Monday.

Gonna get shuttled around Salt Lake by a monster jam tech I haven’t seen since I quit, and hopefully catch some friends around Denver on the way back. Hoping to hear from Steph and JT. Might need to get JTs digits from Erik. Might stop in Moab then take my time through Colorado, and hustle back from there.

It’s recently on coilovers instead of air springs and the rears aren’t adjusted to proper height. It apparently needs rear tires too. Just had some suspension work incl alignment done. Not sure why one would align a multi-link car at not its final ride height, but who knows. Getting confirmation on tire size tomorrow and I’ll see how the craigslist tire population is out there. Would rather not buy 4 new of what I want there then cook them on bad alignment.

Expectations:
Massive oil leak, doesn’t run right, suspension is falling out of the car.

Likely won’t be worse than that. And it really should be better than that. It does have typical oil leaks, and the bad rear tires. I’d bet they’re original tires and it was driven around with rear bags blown and alignment AFU.

I’ve got photos of paperwork and ID. Guy seemed totally legit on the phone. He hasn’t had it long. Decided to keep sticking money into his 7.3 ford and race quads instead of fixing up a wannabe rally car to get to the shooting range in style.

hmm.. Eagle could have been kept running with duct tape and shoelaces to make it home.. an Audi.. probably not so much... hopefully it is not too much of an adventure, but we will all be here waiting for updates!

You're about 2x on expectation there.
Hopefully there won't be a tow bill to make you right. I think flight was $220 or so, expecting 20mpg and $3/gal for 2000 miles.
