Somebody posted this on another forum I frequent, said it's their neighbor's car. I take it that it's a 996 but really can't tell.

I actually saw that car in person the last time I took the famiky to SFO and we went trekking for a day.

Don't say "I'm sure" but my best guess is an homage (pr: oh-majjj) to the Janis Joplin 356. Google says sold for $1.76 mil. gulp

Opinions on the quality of this op-art job are not in my domain. Having grown up in the 60s, in SoCal, I saw a couple of these make-overs in my youth. The best I can recall is an early Citroen 'duex-chavoux'(CV-2) in psychedelic colors.

Yup, when I saw this I thought of the Janis Joplin 356 also. There was a "Chasing Classic Cars" episode on this car; IIRC it included the auction you mentioned.

Truth to tell, I'd rather drive that op-art C4S than something like this:

BAT eat your heart out!!!

And "Bring a Trailer" means... you MUST bring a trailer!!!

Unique features:

1. Custom pinstripe around the fender
2. Vinyl cover included. Sorry it's sectional. That stuff is expensive!
3. Complimentary bumper off and engine out service
4. Becker radio needs the code
5. IMS has been removed along with the RMS, AOS, and POS
6. Hood has been removed for better air circulation
7. Side mirrors removed for better aerodynamics
8. Has never seen rain cause it doesn't have eyeballs
9. This is not just a garage queen... more like the garage goddess
10. Please no joy rides. Serious buyers only.

Definitely a strong entry in the Worst 996 category, but I'll always give extra credit to the ones where somebody spent thousands of dollars and the car still looks awful.

That said, this one is pretty impressive. The only thing I really can't fathom is how the wheels survived.

"engine runs but is very noisy. I was told it most likely is a bad intermediate shaft bearing? "

"The body is solid, however the hood has some damage and the vehicle has scratches and dings all around. "
