CConnor, Is that an old airhead beemer in front of your targa?
Yep! A '72 R75/5 that I have seen lots of miles with.

What is the general consensus on changing color? Right now, the car is General Motors white, a white white. Originally, it was ivory, which is pretty, but ...

I'm probably going to repaint it, and I really like the greens available in the early 70's like Ravenna and chartreuse. Assuming I keep the car for a while and that the repaint is a good one following complete disassembly of the car, would I regret not doing the original color?

Thanks in advance for the advice and testimonials.

Thanks Al

A PO did a full "Turbo Look" job on it. All factory parts and very high quality work.
Steel "Turbo" flairs front and rear. Turbo spoilers front and rear.

Gonna need paint soon but from 20 Feet away it still looks great!

What is that system sitting on top of your engine? Is that a blower? Or a custom intake? It looks awesome.

OK, I'll play....here is my '85 just back from a DE. I like driving home with my numbers on, even though it's a bit cheezy.

Regards,

Here is my 88 Targa Turbo just after I rescued it from the middle east and before I shipped it home. It has been in the workshop
for the past few months getting some attention.

This car made me a Targa Lover with its neck snapping open cockpit driving.

Targas take a beating on design and looks from coupe owners, but the fact is that when you are in the car that's what matters, and that's why the wind in your hair with the top off just cannot be duplicated.

A wonderful, versatile car that can easily be made solid, rattle-free, and leakproof. Mine is proof of that - solid as the day it was built and a joy to drive in the sun.

Michael,

That's a Varioram intake. It is stock on 96-98 993's.

Here's a pic with her street clothes on:
