I'll have it - looks okay to me. Interesting to put turbo parts on a 993 targa, but why not.

That thing looks scary to me, rode hard and put away wet type scary. Oh yea they totaled the car and all it needed was a fender and a bumper cover. Come on who in their right mind would believe that one?

Cool idea just a mix of so much and too many stories

Seems like a lot of $$$ to put into a salvage-title car. The right side still shows a few "scars" from the prior incident.

If you read the auction, the dent pictured is from a broom handle falling against the car.

Doubt it. Look at the bottom of the side valance, it is scratched as well.

Point is, the damage present on the car now is most likely not the damage that caused the car to receive a salvage title...and how is a scrape on a lower front valance possibly related to a dent on the upper rear fender?

sheesh...
