Bought One. Gulp!

Recommended Posts

G'day All,

Well, I have done the usual thing and jump in feet and chin first. Have bought a late 1988 turbo, in "concorse condition" and documented service history.

Bright banana yellow (Norfolk Mustard), my favorite colour.

Are they any good?

Cheers, Jerry

Are they any good, are they any good, they're better than good, one of the truly great cars of automotive history, NASA material, stick like *!*! to a blanket, manufactured by the greatest sports car manufacturer in the world, *!! all over you Ferrari or Porker.

And I may say remarkably comfortable, like women can be a little temperamental, but we can forgive them that. Good decision, you bought the best!

Welcome to ownership Jerry. Enjoy every drive.

Good find! Need Photos!

I love the 88'. That is what I ended up with after a search of sorts. A little "cleaner" looking than the later models as the ducts and such on the front end are absent. You will enjoy it I am sure!

No Jerry, they aren't. I'd recommend posting me the keys, I'll take it off your hands and dispose of it carefully for a small fee.

:lol:
