Is this a stock antenna?

Gents,

Can someone confirm whether this antenna is stock or not? I'd like to replace it with something a bit cleaner looking but don't have any ideas as to where to look. Any suggestions?

Hey, Pete

I have an 87' and mine is in the windshield. I've never seen one like that, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything. What year is your's?

Is that hooked up to your fm radio? Because it looks more like a pre-cellular car radiotelephone antenna.

I thought you were kidding when I first saw this...

No, it's as far from origonal as it gets and unfortunately you have a hole in the roof of this car now.
It would be very expensive to weld a piece of steel in that hole and have body work and paint done on it now.

My car had one of those when I bought it last year. I removed it and used a plastic plug to fill the hole. Mine you I have a Targa top so it blends in.

Is this antenna on a 1989 forest green metallic 930? Did you buy this car recently?

Thanks guys, that's what I was afraid of. I'm going to try to find a suitable replacement that wont look so out of this world. That thing looks like it should be on a space ship!

My car is an 87 euro spec and judging by the condition of the antenna its been on there for a long time.

you could put a windsheild wiper motor under it so it rotates back and forth and freaks people out

Wait - this wasn't a Special Wishes option?



All that's missing is a gyroscope inside!

When you replace it, make sure everything is water-tight.

Take care,
