Something must be wrong with me then....

Other than the hood pins and scoop, the shiftknob and boot, and the mis-matched seats, I like it..

Looks like the engine bay needs to be cleaned up.

Got to like all of the typos...Isn't the hood scoop supposed to be on the side, not the middle?

Yea, I'd say that car's save-able, it's not really in THAT bad of shape. I could tell without even reading the description that it had to be a FL car (why are all the hideously bad-taste cars you see from there?) You also know from the appearance / description that car has been beat to hell by the owner, so I suspect whoever wins it will end up sinking a lot of $$$ in maintenance in it.

not just Porsche's, either - last month my two boys and I took a road trip to Miami (should have known better) to look at a motorhome - it was quality time spent with the boys, and my 6 year old who had never been to the beach got broken in on Miami's South Beach (and yes they got to see more than they bargained for - Mumma wasnt real impressed) - and that motorhome is still down there!

Good eye, I didn't look that closely. I was thinking it was supposed to be a 924 GT hood

It would be nice if the whole interior was black including the shifter and knob. I dont really like the rear bumper cap deal either. It would be a nice car for $951 though.

DAMN! Not bad at ALL!

It just needs to lose the hood clamps and the hood scoop.

never been in an accedent but the drivers side door paint doesnt match the rear quarter paint. and the color matching on the rear valence is horrible. and why so many hood pins?

id say the car is only slightly molested....

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.

Might be that the hood is totally removable, hence the "additional" pins. Had that on one of my stockers. (way back)

I thought we already tore this car to shreds in another discussion. Something about it being a turbo in pristine condition, then it was an 86 NA with some defects, then we boiled it down to a ricer's experiment gone awry with porsches.

The owner should have stuck to honduhs.

The back end looks like an early 928.

To do list:

Buy rims
Buy body kit
Buy paint
Crappily piece together interior from stolen cars
Totally neglect engine and mechanicals

Sell on Ebay for $6500

Kind of a shame what can happen in the wrong hands.


(Someone COULD save this one an make it pretty great though......lots of time needed on that engine though...very neglected........bet theres socks in there somewhere.....)

What gets me the pricing is.... Why start bids at $951, then make up a fake user I.D. to bid it up to the price you want to sell it for? Why not just start bidding at your reserve, it'll make you look like less of a crook at least.....

would they be carbon fiber socks, or whatever is on sale at AutoZone..


(edit)
All it needs now is a statement that the muffler bearing has rescently been changed and the synthetic blinker fluid is topped off.
