    It's more like a 2001-2002 year model.

    That's car #3 (5th one running) and yes, it belonged to Dickhead (Tom). Neil and his wife delivered it to Dickhead's place in Colorado. It originally belonged to a woman that used to be part of ATV Racing. It has the big teethy fish on the sides.

    You do NOT want that p.o.s. Polaris 800. It's horrid. (and when mine started it's self destruction in Mexico, I put my foot all the way to the floor to make sure it was DEAD).

    It was originally a sand car and ATV ended up doing upgrades, such as front brakes and off road rims/tires.

    Year model on the Tazcar's is actually pretty irrelevant. There was the first generation and the second. The first used sled engines, had a narrow(er) chassis, many with dual rear shocks (King coil over and bypass) and were built with smaller diameter tubing.

    The second generation were larger by 6" in width in the passenger area, the shocks mount inboard of the main roll hoop, larger tubing, Ecotec engine powered. Some (like mine) were 6" longer. I believe that Neil raised the roof some too. The second generation also uses Fox internal bypass coil overs on all four corners and they dropped the rear dual shock setup.

    I'm not sure what year they changed to the second gen setup. Mine is now about 8 years old in a 14-15 year life span, so I'm gonna go out on a limb and say the first gen was up through maybe 2006?

    I wouldn't purchase that car if it were put on my door step, but that's a personal issue with Dickhead, not the car.

    Yes, I hate Tom Cruise.
    Our paths have run across each other twice now (indirectly) and he's a arrogant DICK.
