my yellow Viggin

Last night in Chatz we started talking about rebuilt cars he are some pictures of my wifes 99 9-3 vert. It was hit in the right front when I bought it and we put a right front clip on it. The car also went through the Iowa City tornado last year!! The tornado went right over the top of the car with my wife in it. It sucked the rear window out and sucked the front part of the top off the header bow. I payed $3500 for the car in 2002 with only 39k on it. It cost another $2500 to get it repaired in parts and paint. the car now has 68k on it and has been VERY trouble free

The fact that it was totaled wasn't entirely clear to me.

If some one finds a viggen like that, tell me where.....

im sure there are different size tornados, so i wouldnt know...

generally, id consider a tornado attacking your car being just as severe as a decent crash, if not worse...

that looks real nice. There is a 99 vert in that color around here, but with the base model trimmings, no fancy body kit.
I like what you've done.

Don't Viggen's also have color matched door bumps as well as side mirrors?

No Viggen Emblems?

Some black and chrome emblems would look pretty sweet (shameless plug for abdukted)

Moonracer - where did you find that? does it just have the viggen body?

The fact that there were no viggen verts in 1999 makes the true identity of the car clear to me

But....viggen kit, MCY paint, Viggen wheels, etc make a damn fine looking car, and probably a lot less trouble than your avg. '99 viggen.
