New here from Tokyo

Hello,
New here as I just bought my wife a 97 GT, seen it on the base lemon lot, the guy started at 7+K, i looked at it and waited a month. Got it for $4800.
There are a lot of extras on it, cobra brake upgrad, Roush suspension, cobra hood and wheels with brand new F1s. I believe I got it at this price because no one wanted to deal with the idle/running issue.
Well, it's nice to be here.
JP

Not everyone is from a hick town but you could say i am. i'm actually from the Ball Play area in Alabama, it's near Hokes Bluff. I'm now in Tokyo, Japan serving the very nation in which you reside in. Thanks for the welcome.

Re: New here from Tokyo

Thought i would put in some quick pics of the rides. The Mustang is sitting up a little high, needs to so it can pass inspection, gets a lot of compliments so will probably leave it like that. I couldn't find any good electronic pics of the BMW, this pic was prior to the trim being painted the same color as we had ordered. The GTR is, well, it's a GTR.
