If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

Remember that post a few weeks ago about the Hyundai Scoupe Turbo? It's finally home. Photo dump.

I went out to the guy’s shop this afternoon with the friend I bought it with and another friend with a truck and trailer. Gave it a push and for the first time since 2012 (per the tags on the plate), the Scoupe rolled.

Loaded and strapped down!

Thanks in no small part to my idiocy in forgetting the keys, we had to use a floor jack borrowed from a bystander and brute strength to lift the rear to get it facing the right way. Yeah, it’s that light. Somewhere under 2200 pounds. Enjoy the photos.

Ahh... The 1.5L 12 valve Alpha Turbo.

Coolest feature I’ve found yet? The driver’s seat has an adjustable thigh support, like a BMW, except it moves up and down, not forward and back.
