Yes, a 2000 T5 Wagon! PRND321 shifter, 11/99 build date, solid lifters!

211k.

And so begins $300 wagon round 2!

Plan is to resurrect this beauty (2 owner & 1 since 2005) to her glory and do some stage zero plus stuff I've dialed in on the other wagons.

ZLine A/S inbound, 302s ready, better seats on hand. Just need to get a MSM 426 hood and ecodes.....or jewels?!?

Yea......it's one of 2. Afaik there were only 2 t5 wagons imported for "2000" outside of OSD/special order.

Super cool and actually it makes it very easy to work on it'll be post all RN evolution crap coolant/oil supply to turbo wise.

Now we have 4 essential identical cars in the fleet. Pewter, emerald, t5xc and 00 t5. Gotta name them! 940s are phasing out. 740 will stay since it's batsh*t

Yes, Grecian Volvo will corroborate as he worked at a store in Philly in those days and special ordered two of these (I think) for customers.

Oh jeez.

Well it's in good hands now!

This will only ever get the best parts and upgrades and will remain very much stock. We want to take a p80 to 500k and this may be the one

But why? I thought all p80 5-speed A/Ts were beyond garbage.

Brought her home.





Did a quick interior clean up, weather mats in, trunk liner in, fitted a new headlight, did some classic simple mods. New center console armrest installed.

And then ordered $1500 worth of parts to get this dialed in and mechanically healthy and sound.
