Nice!!! Welcome!! Tell us a little bit more about it. Front airdam, side vents.... What about engine mods. Looks to have an aftermarket exhaust. Thanks.

My New Beast

I have very little history on the car. I picked it up after it sat for 3 years in a police lock-up facility. 42,600 miles, no keys, the car was filthy but the engine and the underneath looked good so I took a chance. Wow. After I got keys cut for the car and 30 mins on the charger the Beast fired up on the 3rd try. The car was filthy but the engine compartment looked clean and very neat. The oil was pristine and after blowing some blue smoke for the first 10 min she idled on her own and then ran like a top.

Brought it in to the mechanic for a quick check and certifcation. Other than a burnt tail light no issues. On the mechanics advice I've just put 2 tanks of fuel through her and next week I'll change all the fluids. Other than that she runs like a charm. I'm sure I'll have a lot of questions for the forum in the near future but so far I love the Beast.

Yes it looks like it has some extras, front oil cooler? vents, box rockers, exhaust. Maybe an engine shot?
