I am a little hesitant to post this because I almost kinda want this one for myself. But the timing and distance just aren't right for me at the moment.

Anyway a Purple? (whats the official color name?) 1996 SC2 Manual that runs but dies. 140K Located in Mobile Alabama.

My guess is clogged EGR or fouled plugs from leaking valve cover gasket.

If it is still there at the end of June and I haven't found anything else....

Naw... It' s black... The black interiors fabrics fade and become purple. It seems UV light does it as the closer to the window the more pronounced.

I had a dark chocolate 96sc2 with the black interior

Not purple. I had a 96 Purple, loved that car, shoulda never sold it.

Later on there was a color called Blackberry that was almost black - but I think that was 97 or 98?

It's not the dumbest design for a roll cage. The bar could be there to help protect the doors panels from cracking if hit on track. I hear the plastic fenders can be a pain to deal with. Not only do they leave a mess behind, you need a new panel once broke. At least metal can be hammered out. Looks like this car already experienced that very problem. The passenger side is a gen 2 fender, while the drivers side is gen 3.

To complement the above link I have taken a few videos of the car.

Hopefully there is somebody out there who would rather want this restless Cali car instead of fixing up a hopeless case beater.

I tell you what, after driving stick for a few years in my 95 sedan it is nice to have an auto to daily drive. Then on the weekends I drive the sedan to keep in touch with stick driving.

The autos can take a beating too if well maintained. I’m definitely not very kind to mine on the highway and it’s still holding up great.

This looks like a 2001 bright red special. It has black emblems and is definitely bright red. The owner calls it a 2002, but the manual is for a 2001. I don't think they made the bright red special in 2002, so the owner could be mistaken or hit the wrong key.

Probably somebody simply stuck black badges on.

I believe it should have white gauge faces....

Nope, that is a bright red edition. Only came with black badges and the red paint job. Local yard has one that I grabbed the badges off of.
