Default 964 Turbo, my first journey into air-cooled!

Picked up this single owner 1992 964 Turbo yesterday. Looking forward to getting her home! What do y'all think about refinishing the Ruf wheels in bronze?

That is absolutely stunning!!! I wouldn’t change anything on it, just refresh any worn out parts and drive it!

Enjoy in good health and congrats!

Congratulations. Beautiful car. I would keep the Ruf wheels silver, if it were me. I like the original look.

Very nice! Leave the wheels, fix the ripples in the front bumper instead.

Congrats

Omg that used to drive me nuts, my front bumper was rippled as well on the top. What causes that ? Sitting in the sun?
