    My Newest "Vintage" Kit Car

    Before anyone says how ugly it is I want you all to know I have NEVER been a fan of the Invader GT. In fact I am still not a fan of them. BUT I purchased the car because instead of the normal tired old VW engine it was sporting a 90s Subaru EJ22t . Overall the car is in good shape, it starts right up, and runs down the road, and was a deal I could not pass up.

    Flash from the past for sure.....

    Are you going to update the body style to something a bit more aesthetically pleasing but still keeping the original intent of the design, or just drive it and enjoy?

    Cheers

    Hey Don,

    I got it for such a good deal I may just drive it a bit and flip it. I priced out doing the engine swap in another beetle based car and it can approach $5000 if you were going it yourself. A company in Cali charges damn near $17,000 to do the swap and people are paying it. I dont get it but hey whatever.

    I will tell you 185hp on tap compared to 40hp sure makes it fun haha
