It's Ronald McDonald's car! Need white wheels though.

They did put the steering wheel on the wrong side, but why throw up?

And a pimped out 996. Too bad - it's a C4 Aerokit car. Kinda cool otherwise...

I actually like it. And I am very picky, not for me, but the deep red looks good with the yellow.

Now blacked out rims or something would ruin it. But they are complimentary colors.

I think you really mean too bad it's a TIP, w/ the arbor day wood package. Seems very very conflicted over-all. That or someone got hold of a JCWhitney catalog...

Yup. That too...

Obviously a customer ordered car. You have to wonder sometimes what people think. That was a $90k+ car when new.

And black tail lights.

And headlights. And turn signals. Ouch! I know what you're talking about! I bought it that way - I can't account for the previous owners lack of taste. Give me some time. I've got new tail lights, wheels and headlights just waiting for me to have some extra time to get them installed

All I see is a lack of true commitment - both trunks should be finished in custom red linings!

If something is worth doing, then its worth doing it all the way.

Imagine the therapy needed by the poor line workers who had to assemble that... thing!
Who would actually want to special order a vehicle that horrid looking!?
