            Dang Dave

            That thing really looks great painted in that fashion. I guess that that body style looks great in a plethora of color combinations and styles.

              I love the aspect of cars having long lives...and the various guises they go through with different owners.

              I wonder where it is now?

                From June, 1984 Turning Wheels SDC Bulletin:



                There has been a less than enthusiastic response to this subject, so this is the last one. Wanted to share it, though, 'cause it reminds me of someone here's neat Stude.
                I remember the article that went along with that cover shot. Great read about the trials and tribulations the owner went thru to build this neat car. It sure inspired me, and I have read it several times since.

                  That pic is from '84? that was probably a very up to date "rod" back then, the wheels especially. Wonder what they were? I remember drooling over car mags in grade school and every fast German car had BBS mesh center wheels, usually gold painted centers, with tons of "lip" on them. To this day I still think they look good

                    Also note the very 80s pop-up sunroof. Something not as easy to get rid of.

                          I'm sure many enjoy this series such as myself...please do not post just to get a response, post because you want to share. Even though some us have many years of TW's to look at, we don't take the time to look at them. I think it's great that you are posting these, brings back many memories...and on that note keep it up. BTW...this is one sweet coupe. Thanks, Junior.
