    10 years and kicking

    Got my foxfire 2001 at the start of 2002 either jan or feb. So 10 years now. I ordered it and they shipped it over from Japan because they didnt have it in stock. And the serial number ends in 117, The Master Chief's #. Spiffy!
    Less than 50,000 miles. No major problems.
    Here's to another 10 years!

    Very cool. Another original owner. Congrats on the milestone!

    I've had mine for a long time also, and I'll admit I wasn't the best owner in those middle years when times got tough. But I'll tell you, putting her back on the road and doing the mods - I've never been more into any car I've ever had and I feel like she's brand new all over again.

    Someone posted here recently about looking in the garage or driveway just to stare at his VX. I do that ALL the time now. Again. Who does that aside from new car buyers? Vintage owners, supercar owners, and VX owners.

    Here's to another 10 for you! (With only 50K on the clock, shouldn't be too much of a stretch!)

    Now on year 17 and just broke 88,000 miles. 3rd ABS replacement. The replacements are good for about 2 years. The local Pep boys has become very familiar with vehicrosses now.

    Congrats on the longevity. I'm on my second and been around about 10 years total now. Loved every day of it.
