What an unusual color, was it a paint to sample? Beautiful car, I suspect the color changes quit a bit as the light changes. BTW, aerodynamicists would recommend that a G bodied car have spoilers at...

Good eye onboost, yes Talbot Yellow, don't see many done in this shade, get lots of positive comments. It helps that the actual paint job on the car is outstanding.

Hootie, I've had the tires on the car for about 2000 miles now. I'm pleased with how they are working out. Fairly quiet with a reasonable ride, the grip is great although you're warned to insure...

I'm sure it will be good. Here's a tip though. All on these tow hook mounts rely on a bolt that screws into the point. They turn because they aren't tight enough. Don't worry about the strength of...

Subaru power in that package must really be impressive, even without a turbo. I assume you can find an easy 225-250 hp which would require a built three liter 6 if you use Porsche power. I'll bet you...
