Default Retro Carrera GT

What do you think about this retro GT that's making the rounds? Personally, I think it's smoking hot... More pics here.

Gold, silver, green, oxblood, and table cloth. Different. The more I look, the more I like. A heck of lot to absorb. I think I need a drink to ponder this a while.

I'm sure the quality of resto is amazing and I'm sure it needs to be seen in person to appreciate. But my opinion is that it takes a bunch of earlier period colors and patterns and throws them on a very mid-2000's styled car and it doesn't work for me. No offense to the guy that did it; I'm sure he and many think it's absolutely stunning. I'd personally rather take a boring silver or black on black with a wood shift ****

But I hate boring black/silver on most 911's. So, again, all personal opinion. I can appreciate all the work that went into it and how unique it is.

That must be my problem with it; I stopped drinking!

LOVE the outside! But the inside? What was he/she thinking with the ox blood?! Tan or black would have gone beautifully with the houndstooth.

I have no doubt it's amazing in person. I am currently having fun just thinking about what color paint I would choose If I ever decide to do this
