    BigTyla bought a Talon







    It's AWD MTX turbo BTW.

    Lots of plans in store for this, but will be done on a budget. First phase will likely involve renewing the body which will require very little money.

    The interior pieces are in good shape, they are just not put together. It's going to need a new sunroof or refurbishment of the old gaskets but the guy I bought it from said he thought he had an extra sunroof in good condition and if he found it he'd call me.

    He seemed like a straight shooter. I was able to trace him to a couple of automotive forums through some keen investigative work from his craigslist pictures and after I asked him some questions I could tell he wasn't trying to hide anything from me. He threw in an extra transfer case and transmission along with a brand new 16G. Also gave me an extra front bumper and stock downpipe. $1200 was the final price. I'd say I got a pretty good deal.

    Thanks to Rob and Dani for helping me get it home, as well as my wife for a great Valentine's day present!

    From what I was told the trans was rebuilt by Shepard Trans but the guy he bought it from didn't have paperwork. Hadn't been used since the rebuild. I'm contemplating hanging on to the extra parts in case I break something so I can just swap it right in!
