Sad to see these cars that were once cherished, stripped down and left for dead.

Wow...hard to believe that's the same car.
Sad indeed! I had to hide these pics from my Garage Queen lest she refuse to start up if I ever dreamed of stripping her and selling her off...

I wouldn't say left for dead. The car still has the CF roof and LCI conversion and seems to be in decent shape for 40k miles. Looks to be a great car still!

I'm not so certain.

The car has been for sale at this dealership twice in the last year, as well as a private sale.

The car was heavily modified from the previous threads. It appears that it didn't entirely go back to stock. For someone specifically looking for a LCI I still wouldn't be inclined to consider the car. It appears that the interior is not even the same as the factory black.

From my experience, heavy modified cars haven't gone back to OEM well and it can show. I am certainly not saying this is the case always, just my experience.

I think it depends on certain items too. Interior bits get broken tabs. Rattles appear.

Superchargers! Don't get me started

From the two kits I previously owned, ESS seems to be the least obtrusive for modding the OEM parts. Don't get me started on the Active kit. I was less than pleased at the amount of cutting to the front end there was.

I guess that's where my perspective comes from when I see a heavily modded car that was put back to OEM. Not for me but I am sure there is a potential buyer out there.

I just know that the private buyer was flabbergasted when he bought the car and found out afterwards that it had existed in another form.
