Nice ride, ProttiBMW...enjoy! BTW, let's swap bumpers!

The car appears to be very clean and straight. Paint color is excellent, what is it?

Welcome to the group. That is a very nice example.

If I may ask, what are good 944s costing in Europe now?

Nice! Although it's not a targa top (examine the 911 targa, and the 914 for 'targa tops'). Your 944 is very beautiful.

That's what the sun roof model is called in Europe. Basically anything that can have a section of the roof removed.

We think of targas as removing the whole forward roof section and leaving a roll bar like section behind the seats. This is how they were marketed here.

Nice-That add on spoiler/skirt below the back bumper-is that a standard porsche part? Also above the front air intake - where the number plate goes it is dificult to see if something is blacked out or the opening is different to my 84 NA Euro style. Think it looks pretty cool without the number plate-perhaps a stick on number on the nose cone would be the way to go-also cops won't be able to ID the number so easy with the camera traps. No dash cracks!!!
