Only the later 80's models were available as Targa's and they don't typically sell as well as coupes although a Turbo Targa is a rarer car so it may sell for more.
Well a targa is great but I can do with a sun roof. did turbo models come with sunroofs.
Also as far as suspension how do you compare the suspension between a targa and a turbo. Usually I would be lowering the suspension if it was not already done?
I found that 1979 targa SC 3.0 in my area. it looks like it has RUF wide body kit from what I can tell. the seller is asking 14000 but he claims that the car is super clean. Now if i take a look at the car and it is clean would it be worth turbo charging. How much would it cost and how much power can i get out of it.
is their a place that explains or sells turbo charging kits for targas? and how involved is it?
