    Background:
    My first turbo-AWD DSM. Got her in very bad condition, but I was getting it blindly so it didn't matter. Went to a neighbour country to get her with a flatbed. Took 3 months to get her in somewhat good shape. Still battling little problems, but the long-term plan is a full restoration and then upgrading to a mild street build (~300 AWHP).

    Reason for the Lucky 'Sevens' name is ironical. The VIN ends in "077777", a very unique number and I've been having a lot of bad luck with the car so far, hence the name.

    Good luck on the restoration. Nice to see people willing to bring problematic cars back to life.

      I appreciate the words man. It's been a long ride (even though so far it's just been a year). Just got the exhaust re-done today so all that's left is to rebuild the lil' turbo and that should be it!
