There's a Swift GT for sale there and was curious if anyone would be willing to take a look at it for me?

...maybe...depends if I take a little trip to the coast. I'd probably call that person and see if we can meet up in a neutral area. Do you know if the person has a phone I can contact them?

Not yet. I don't want you to go out of your way, just thought I'd see if that was anyone's home turf so to speak. I get some more details, I'll let you know, thanks.

Yeah no prob, just know that I would be able to. Though if some other member (the few) that lives here in Oregon and is closer is willing to do it.....hey more than welcome to go ahead. I planning on visiting my grand parents which live close to that area.

You may be thinking of Roydjt....he's in the OSU area though. He is by far closer and has a straighter shot to on hwy 20 then up on hwy 101. instead of me on 26 then down on 101. hehe I'm amazing myself for the knowledge I have of the hwy's.....hehe Though I even get lost in Downtown Portland.

Well, at least one of my threads is still open! :abovelol: I posted this on eClub too, so if there is someone closer, maybe they'll see it. Or they don't like me and are ignoring it. . .which ever!

My wife and I may be going to the coast this weekend. PM me with the sellers info and if we go I will let you know what we found.

Well, this is a big nevermind. It appears BOTH GTi's I was interested in are sold. Oh well. . .I know they are out there. It's just a matter of time before I can get my hands on one!

Thanks to all for their help, or at least the offer of help.

There is a 1.3 DOHC Swift GTi engine here locally if you just wanted to buy a dirt cheap Metro.

OK, so is it a GTi, or is it a Metro? Which is it? Two COMPLETELY different bests there. One has 100+hp, 4-wheel disc brakes, recaro seats and better gearing and suspension. THe other is a 3cyl turd with more body roll than a Lincoln that takes 2 days to get to 60mph, if it ever gets there and cardboard seats.

It is just the Swift engine. I was trying to say you could buy just the engine and transplant it into a Metro. A few members on TeamSwift have performed the swap.

Yeah, but then there's the no disc brakes, suspension is different, the seats are not there. . . and an engine swap would put that car into Street Mod with the Evo's and STi's on race slicks. DOubt I'd have much of a chance there!

Ah I see, forgot about the auto-x. You could do FreeCreditReport.com commercials though.
