Anyone Own This Bird?

http://charlottesville.craigslist.or...271256340.html

So I'm trying to convert my roommate to the MN12 if anyone owns this beauty, we're looking to buy it. Anyone have any other details about this ride? Looks like custom wheels, maybe from customwheelshop?

Just looking for some info if its been spotted by anyone? If not, I'll let you know what it runs/looks like if anyone out there is interested in acquiring a new 4.6 project.

Hope something doesn't leak on it. Looks to have a funnel under the hood in one picture that's the only bad sign I see.

The current owner could just have it there for just in case moments. It's to the right of the brake booster, and IIRC, there's nothing beneath where the funnel is sitting at in the picture.

Isn't red 94+ interior pretty rare too? Not quite as rare as the green, but I thought red and blue were fairly rare.

Yeah, I used to keep one there in the 94 just so I didn't have to go searching for the thing when time to change the oil. lol

GFX gotta go. That or find the matching front/rear pieces.

Red interior is definitely rare amongst the 94+ interiors, it was 94/5 only unlike blue and green which survived to 97. Though despite that, green still seems to be the rarest IME. Blue I've seen more than Red and Green combined.
