Yeah I think I have seen that before or at least another mod like that. It's different. I'll give it that.

That's about the only way to actually use the back seat, but it just looks strange. now, a 944 limo... hmm... :P

I like the black wheels. Hey, and no hatch rattles.

Ya, in some European country vehicles with a truck bed aren't taxed as much. Interesting stuff.

Asking if you should replace that timing belt is like asking if you should re-use a condom that may have in hole in it with a hooker.

They have done a good job. If for some reason the back was damaged that beats scrapping the car. Lack of space is always a problem with the 944-know my wife and daughter would be happy-they don't like my car because of space.

they even have AMERICAN rednecks.... it was the funniest thing i ever saw while i was an exchange student over there. a friend and i were sitting at a bus stop just waiting and talking then all of a sudden this 80s F-150 with a huge lift kit, roll bar, huge tires, foglights on the roof and LOUD exhaust with a big american flag flying from a poll in the bed goes flying down the road (and it took up damn near both sides goes flying by. my friend and i were like WTF?! is that?! it was completely out of place in the small town we were in.

The thread should come with a warning label... My fragile little mind is still reeling from what I just saw... Mommy, tell me it was just a nightmare...

I saw the same thing done to a Corvette in Phoenix a few years back. Personally, I kind of like it. Had Porsche thought of it first and offered it, you guys would think it was terriffic.

Just think about it though. The kids would be the only ones arriving in style to their weekly soccer games
