Cheers,

Really, I was thinking that it looked a lot like the interior from my old '88 Targa except for a slightly revised center console.

I know it's not usually popular when it comes up, but I think it's cool and would drive it in an instant.

How is it in person, better, worse, same?

I'd forgotten about that guy.


I'm going to nominate myself for ban island preemptively for this next pic. I think I just threw up in my mouth.

Steve:

It's pretty ugly. Too much of the body appears to be 'missing'. I suspect it would look a whole lot better if it was silver over black, instead of green over green!

One more pic;



The interior (dash & console) are similar to your '88 but are actually from the 993.

Cheers,

Paul.
