2F2F Eclipse

Greetings,

I found this on ebay and would like opinions (not interested in buying, just curious what people think).

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/98-Ec... QcmdZViewItem

I think that it's a great deal. It has very low mileage, manual, and very impressive in the power department (turbo, etc). Also, the paintjob looks great! What do you all think?

PS. I hope this is not considered advertising. I have no interest in others buying it.

Wow, somebody should be put in jail for defacing such a wonderful car (a low mileage factory turbo DSM at that). I wouldn't be seen driving down the street in it.

It's overstated, gaudy, and amazingly weighed down by all the crap in it.

It's pretty nice looking...I wouldn't like to drive it, but I still would, kind of like the VW Beetle, I'd only drive it for the hell of driving it, and being desperate

That paint job is pretty nice, it would be a bitch to paint...

"NOS" type nitrous oxide, and the interior is nice, along with the sound system...it's like a show car, with power...

I'd take it if I had the money, anyone want to spot me $21,000?

It's all personal preference...the guy liked it so he made it for his own enjoyment...

That's a 4G63, it rolled out of the factory with a turbocharger.

it may be ugly but everyone has their own style and things that they like on their ride, i don't think he cared what everyone thought when he got it painted like that, but yeah we all have our opinions on things

Crap. You gota be blind not to know thats not a car from the movie. i saw the behind the scenes. There are 3 cars identical in a movie.
1 is used as a frame to be put on the cameracar and driven around
second is a backup car
last is a hero car. None of them make it out of the set.
Plus the car in the movie was a convertible, with chrome wheels, and a differnet paint.
What a turd, and he says its a "Movie Star"...yea and my neon is a twin turbo beast

Holy crap. How many times did you watch that movie? I watched up till the part where the R34 was taken out of commission and i decided it was bull crap and just stopped. I only watched it to see how else did they wreck the image of cars. Because of that movie, thousands of ricers in Vancouver start racing each other just because they have "NOS." I've smoked countless ricers in a 1508kg car. Bastards think they are fast just because they a 1 foot wing.

Love the paint. I realize how hard that is to do, as I've done a lot of custom paint jobs (including similar stuff on race cars). The only really cheesy thing I've seen so far is teh overspray in the doorjambs. The design should have been wrapped into the jambs. It's just a level of deatail that separates decent work from top work.

Your starting to type like 6000LE again, oh and REREAD the description, of course you prolly didn't in the first place. He said it made a JAUNT, as in a short entry, in the movie, you really think someone with this car would claim it to be the eclipse that starred throughout the movie? DON'T THINK SO. Remember that scene where all the cars are rushing out of the garages? Yeah go back anbd re-watch that part.

Before you call BS on someone take the time to READ the full description, even if it takes 5 minutes out of your busy schedule. Or don't post at all.

Ok, good for you. I think it looks pretty nice. All the work to have everything customized in it and not a flaw throughout it? Sure wouldn't be a daily driver but thats besides the point. I think it looks very original. Not many kids driving around that have the Looks AND the Speed.

That car doesn't have looks. Its ruined. I wanna buy it just to paint it back to black and undress the engine.
