I'm pretty sure it's being butchered and turned into one of these sh#tmobiles:



I swear, there ought to be some sort of test or something in order to qualify for ownership of a P-car.

I don't know. It looks like they have some high end work going on in there. Maybe they'll turn out something great.

The guy scratching his head in the first picture does not exactly instill me with total confidence.

ROFLMAO I agree.



I hope its not a CGT conversion. The rear bumper looks different than what usually gets put on those monstrosities. Did you take these? When can we see the finished product?

Does anyone know where the shop is located? I see New York plates, so I'm wondering if it's actually in New York or not...

those are pics of a 987, the car on the lift is a 986. The kit for the 986 looks a bit different, but not 100% sure its techart. Deffinitely a widebody kit though.
