Well it was a great time

So as some of you might know, i put my marauder up for sale. Dont want to, but life happens. My wife just went back to the states to start her RN program and then will eventually become a CRNA. I am selling my car to pay of debts and ship my dogs and her jeep home. She is going to good hands though. Dont want to post up who yet, i will let them say. But she is officially sold. Once the starter comes in and i get her running, she is gone. Will definitely get another one when i come back stateside and definitely be built the way i wanted to for this one. But i am going to get a truck first. Then marauder project. Thanks for everyone who has helped me along the way. Couldnt have done it without yall

Sorry to hear you had to sell but hopefully you find a better one when you get stateside. Safe travels and look forward to seeing you at a get together.

Yea it sucks but have to do what is best for the family. Between paying out of pocket for 2 dogs and the jeep to go back, its alot. But the wife said once the credit cards and all are paid off i can get whatever i want. So gonna get a 2017 f250 next summer. Then get me another maruader once i am stateside. Wife agrees cuz she loved mine so much haha. Definitely will be making it to a meet up as soon as i come back.

Guess I might as well reveal myself... it's me who bought the car.

Tony put a load of work into it after initially saving it from the scrapper last year, the previous owner blew the engine after supercharging it but failed to do the cooling mod properly and then decided to go flying down the Autobahn at 120+. The car was offered to me with a blown engine last year but I didn't have the time to deal with another car project so I declined and it eventually ended up on a scrap yard where Tony found it and bought it immediately. He invested a lot of time and money into this car, shipped a replacement engine in from the States and got it all up and running again over the course of this year and I'm glad that he did because this car is in immaculate condition, has absolutely no rust and has never seen salt nor snow.

I have a lot of respect for the work and dedication that he put into it and I feel honored to be the next owner of this great ride. It's a real shame that he had to sell it but when he offered it to me I knew I had to make some arrangements to make this deal happing as we both didn't want it to go to someone who doesn't appreciate it for what it is. I've sold my own project car which to be honest wasn't really going anywhere to make room for it and now I can't wait to add that second Marauder to my stable.

I'm hoping to pick it up from Kaiserslautern at some point next month before the worst of winter kicks in and will then be putting it in storage until spring arrives before I can register it, definitely won't be driving it in winter.

Glad another member is taking over the car, sounds like you did a lot of work too bad you didnít get to enjoy the fruits of your labor for long! you will be in a better position to build it the way you want next time

MG Driver is the Euro-Marauderville guy I connected with three years ago. He will get the Marauder working to it's prime.

Good Luck Marvin with the car. I hope you can come stateside one of these days for Fords at Carlisle. First weekend in June. Put it on your calendar for future vacation spot.

Jim

The previous owner is on here, his user name is 03knight. He's originally from Kansas but he bought the car in Maryland and shipped it straight to Germany. He's now living in Italy and is out of the Marauder game for good, having seen what he's done to this car I hope he doesn't get another one.
