Up for sale is my Robin's Egg Blue 1990 Sprint Turbo. I am the car's second owner, and have had it for over fifteen years. The car is currently insured, runs and drives very well. Reason for selling it is I just don't drive it anymore (I have put it away at the end of each of the last five summers with a tank of gas or less run through it -- so 450km/year, give or take), and I no longer have the time to have a hobby like this car. I've taken it to a certain point, but she is ready for a new owner with new enthusiasm.

First, the bad...
[list=]
[*]I know the car won't pass safety, because it needs rockers, either patched or replaced. That also suggests the floor will need attention, although I have not had it looked at.
[*]the thermostat switch that runs the fan needs replacing -- the rad fan doesn't come on
[/list]

Now the good:
It has a current ("last two weeks" current!) e-Test, and, as always, it passed with flying colours. Wasn't even close.
It has lots of new parts in the last 2500km/five years:
[list=]
[*]Rebuilt turbo from Turbine Tech (less than 1000km)
[*]2-inch stainless exhaust, stem to stern, with a proper, legal cat; and the precat was cleaned and replaced when I did the exhaust (less than 2000km)
[*]New brakes at all four corners (less than 2500km)
[*]New battery (two years)
[*]New rebuilt alternator (less than a month)
[*]New wheels and tires (less than 2500km)
[*]Suzuki Sport fiberglass side skirts (about six years old)
[*]Low miles on the car overall -- just shy of 190k
[*]Has not seen winter in about ten years
[*]Has not seen anything but premium unleaded since I bought it
[*]Has not seen anything but full synthetic since I bought it
[/list]

As I said, the car runs and drives beautifully, although you have to run the heater fan to keep it cool while in transit. It is insured and currently on the road, and I am willing to deliver it to you within 50 km of Ottawa center -- after we have made a deal on it.

I'm looking for $1200CDN -- which comes up about $300 shy of what I spent on replacing the turbo alone, but I'm being realistic here, and want to see the car go to a good home. Photos are from beginning of last summer right after a fresh wash and wax. It's what I have available right now at the office, but I'll provide more on request.

It does look great after a fresh wax. Maybe I should wax it again before it goes. :)
