    ebay murcielago roadster

    I got the roadster back from New Jersy. I made it almost the whole way. The engine died at St Regis Montana. My son in law came 95 miles from Coeur d" Alene Idaho with a car hauler. It started overheating 100 miles into the trip. At first I could only go 15 miles before overheating. After gutting the thermostat, putting power to the water pump directly from the battery with a 10 gauge wire and holding my speed to 60 mph, I was able to go 100 miles before checking and adding water. I ran into rain 75 miles from missoula and apparently shorted something out, killing the engine. On the road it got lots of attention and drew crowds at gas stations. 95% of the people thought it was real or were too polite to ask. I am going to switch the suspension with my turboed N* AD355 spyder which has Helds wide track and 13" brakes. The 355 is going to be up for sale, either finished or unfinished. a blown fuse was located and the roadster is running again and a registered car in Idaho.. No way would it pass calif. smog.. No EGR.

    You were brave to drive it all that distance, I would have done the same myself.

    I got an offer to ship it from carlisle penn. for $2300 when it first heated up. That buys a lot of gas. If I had been able to arrange a reasonable rate I would have done it at that point. Also I would have had to find a way to the airport and bought a ticket at full price since I couldn't get it two weeks in advance. The trip turned out to be a real shake down cruise. Since it had 2000 miles on the engine swap, I thought that it would be more sorted out. My son in law, who egged me into the purchase was the only person who said "go for it"

    Re: ebay murcielago roadster

    everything looks the way it should be...but the HONDA MUGEN SEATS give it away .. :-X change the seat and some changes at the dash will bring it near to 99%...




    just my 2's
    dratts1 : sorry for the statement. please acept my apologies in advance.
    i didnt mean to criticise. but just "my very own opinion"...maybe my weird taste is the problem...

    Nice buy I would say.

    If it was mine I would keep the seats as they look like the Recaro SR seat so maybe just a retrim to give it that custom look with a splash of Orange in the centres and then change the gear shift but in all it looks great.
