The peppermint piglet...

As Photobucket has pulled the plug on free image hosting the majority of my historic threads now make little sense.
So this is the place where I will be posting my new pics and possibly some of my old ones too (if I can find them)

Probably not everybody's cup of tea but that color is fantastic. Love seeing our cars in uncommon paint. Go Peppa Pig!

Definitely not everyone's cup of tea you wouldn't believe the negative comments I've received over my years of ownership

Good thing it only matters what you think! Was this a factory paint job?

You need to post some pics of your interior. I almost got inspired to do the same to mine but got too lazy

A few interior shots for itsnotanova apart from the lower centre console all painted by myself. I'm getting ready for our trip to the Nurburgring at the end of next week so checking levels, tires etc

Absolutely amazing colour. And the 986 wears it really well. I'd be interested in seeing the car with some black wheels to match the stripe package. For me extending the body colour to the wheels is always too much (unless maybe the car is white). All personal opinions of course. Very cool to see such a car, thanks for sharing.

Thanks Jim, the body coloured wheels were a factory option on my car but to be honest I've been meaning to have them painted black for years and just haven't got round to it

I missed out on taking the piglet to the Nurburgring this year after the engine light came on a couple of days before departure
So here's a couple of images from last year to cheer me up.
