After many discussions with the family we have regretfully decided to sell our Goblin. We are moving out of Arizona and relocating to another state. We were only in AZ for my wife to finish school which she did last November. We have a house to sell and gotta move a family of 4 so big items will be sold. (Yes this also includes my Harley :mad:) Everything else will be put into storage until we have our new house in a different state.

I was originally thinking about $28-30k but I will be realistic and put it up for what I truly believe is a good price for a turbo build At this time we are looking to get $24,000 for it. It is fully licensed and titled in Arizona and I am willing to deliver or meet the buyer for free within 500 miles but will negotiate a small/fair delivery fee if further than that. Built from 2009 SS, has a 300HP tune from ZZP, powder coated in Disco Purple and has a vinyl wrap so it can be easily re-wrapped. Starts and runs perfect with absolutely no mechanical issues of any kind. (For more info or the complete documentation of the build CLICK HERE)

We have quite a few months to sell it as we are not leaving till the kids are finished with school but trying to get things started. I will try to get some more recent pictures of it, these are very close but just a few small details have been done since these pictures.

I am located in Mesa, Arizona
I can be reached through a personal message on here or Text/Call my cell (623)200-9014

That’s a bummer you are selling it.

I’ve ridden in it a few times and looked the car over thoroughly. I can vouch that it is a good clean build.

Thanks man, and really appreciate you helping out with your electrical expertise but we are honestly bummed too. It was a hard decision and regardless how long me and my wife thought about it the fact still remained that we have to make a few sacrifices in order to make this move.

Believe me, I wouldn't be selling it if circumstances were different because it is an absolute blast to drive, and crazy fast. I still think my kids are going to have a fit when they find out. I just know my wife and family has had enough of the Arizona heat. I think our next move is Texas but will spend the summer in Alaska (our home state) with our family

Rich, I am new to the DFG forum and jus found that you will be selling your Goblin. I cannot imagine the feeling of having to sell this car that you have put your heart and soul (and hard earned cash) into after just completing in a few months ago (I've read through the forum and saw your build).

I was going to contact you to see if I could get the chance to sit in it to see if I can fit in the standard track frame. I am a pretty good sized person - 6'3" 270 lbs - and was wanting to know if I would need to get the extended frame. I am on the fence to decide if a city or track frame would best suit my needs at this point, I would like to hear from you and Brian74 what your thoughts are on the advantages or disadvantages.

I will not have the chance to get to Texas in the near future to visit Adam, Lonny and the rest of the DFG crew to see what fits, so I was hoping to get in contact with someone here in the Phoenix area to 'try one on'. I live in the SW valley - Laveen - not far from Vee Queva, so if you happen to be out cruising one last time, please let me know and we could meet for few minutes - if this is possible.

Thanks and best regards, Tim

I am always willing to help out a potential builder, I remember being in the exact same dilemma when planning my build. I would strongly recommend the extended frame. I am 5'9" 190lbs and I fit perfectly. I met with a potential buyer that was 6'4 and yes he could get in it but it wasn't ideal. My advice....get the extended frame without a doubt. Is Laveen kinda south west of phoenix? never been there.

Thanks for the advice on the extended frame, next decision is the city versus track frame. I fully understand the reasoning behind having the track frame for extra safety and rigidity, just not sure of my ability to climb into and especially out of the car. I have already contemplated putting a quick release on the steering wheel to get it out of the way (and a passive security device - no wheel, no drive away to steal).

Laveen is in the close-in SW corner of the valley, up against the south mountains and right off the Gila Reservation on the west end of the park. Mostly farms, but subdivisions are starting to take over and with the 202 extension being completed it will be overflowing in no time - once people discover Laveen is less than 10 miles away from and easy access to downtown.

Dont want to derail this thread but I went tack, standard, 5'9" 195. I have to go in from the top and I am limber/flexible. The steering wheel is just in the way for me and I find it easier to go through the hoop. Adding a removable steering wheel.....

I’m only 5’8 but in hindsight I would have gone extended for the extra room behind the seats and additional wheelbase. I went city frame but that all really comes down to personal preference. The track frame has its advantages being safety and somewhere to mount a rear view, but I prefer the overall look and ease of entry of the city.

Brian,
Do you feel safe enough in the city frame? I like the idea of an unobstructed view with no A pillar, but I will be driving in some city traffic around Phoenix and am leaning toward the track frame just from that aspect.
IDRVSLO,
Thanks for the reply. Not sure I am agile enough to drop in from the top as you do, but this is something to consider in my decision. BTW, I trolled through your build log last night, very detailed and informative.
Thanks, Tim

I am 5'11" and could not agree more with Brian. If I was to do it over it would be extended, but still city.
