    1999 Supercharged VX for Sale in Austin/Cedar Park

    After 16 years in my garaged car collection, it's time for me to let someone else enjoy it as I have too many other toys. In general, I bought it in 2005 with a rebuilt title at 31K miles. It has been with me since and I've made it as perfect as possible... Alpine supercharger, 2" BL, 33" Wrangler Duratrac, front brush guards and rear tail light guards. Rear headrest monitors, and front/rear custom claddings. Please look at the pictures in link below. I've also filled out all the questionaires as suggested for selling (see below). This is a very low mile VX with 113k on the odometer but engine was replaced at 93K mikes. Have detailed records since 2005 as the 2nd owner. Asking only $14K.

    Thank you for reading.

    Sorry guys, I tried to post the link of my VX from the Photos section but they are not showing up??? http://www.vehicross.info/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=1417[/IMG]

    Hate to see you sell her Julian. I'm in Georgetown now. I remember meeting you years ago at Chuy's with Lisa and Greg. Hope you have great success with the sale. I posted it on the VX Facebook page as well.

    Lisa, one of my best car related memory is still the weekend that you helped to install the Alpine Supercharger. We did a great job (pad yourself on the back please) since the supercharger has been working flawlessly. I have too many cars in my collection so something has to go
