It's obviously a turbo as it shown by the engine compartment and the serial number. CAr is early Turbo Carrera. May not look so hot, but maybe the records tell another story. Also appears to be al there.

I have seen quit a few clan, well maintained and modified cars here for sale. In the long run I would highly suggest paying a little bit of a premium to find one of the nicer examples from an owner on this board. Trust me paying 35K for a nice one here will save you 10K over buying a 25K car on EBay. Just my $20000 advice from someone who knows.
Good advice for the most part. However, not everyone who owns a Turbo or happens to be selling one is a member of this board. There are some ghood cars/deals on ebay from time to time.. you just need to know what you're looking for, or have the car checked out by someone who does. Can you say PPI
