Sorta looks like a camero from the side.

Someone spent some real time on that car though.

Check out the aluminum coolant tank and washer reservoir.

I wonder if it is a work in progress or just a show-no-go car. Hope not. Looks like a base 944 with some serious mods. Would like to pick the builders brain...

the turbo is big enough for me to live in...I might be on crack here, but I think that's just a little tiny bit TOO BIG!

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.

I noticed the coolant tank thing too.

All show and no go?


I would hate to think this had been a 968.

I will continue to think that it started life as a beater early......then I can sleep.
