Got it this past spring. Too good a deal to pass up. Not running, but shouldn't be too bad. I've dealt with non-running Vdubs before. Needs brakes all the way around including a master cylinder. Hope to be on track in the Northeast next summer with COMSCC. Fingers crossed

nice! just picked up a former ITC car myself to play with. I kept running across the ad for that car as it's still up in a few places. :)
