    2005 Jet Black/NB 6MT sedan - keeping it in the "family"

    As the title states, I was fortunate enough to catch a member (tomnobes) thinking about selling his ZHP before he posted an actual ad. After several months of patiently answering all my questions, Tom agreed to sell me his prized 2005 for a great deal. Due to the pandemic we did the deal completely remote, trust was key and on my end 100% fulfilled (I hope Tom feels the same way) and a week ago today I became the 4th owner of this 1 of 45 JB/NB 6-speed. The car has exceeded my expectations already and I am looking forward to being an active member of this community. I have lots of questions and some near term issues I will be seeking guidance on, so follow me over to the “projects” section and join me in the journey.

    Christmas in May, with my favorite kind of sled:

    These are the best stories. I remember getting my car from Eli - was the best car buying experience I ever had.
