Garage
The Boxster GT

I find this disgusting what someone has done to a Boxster, but I couldn't just let her die. I was browsing on craigslist and I came across this find. It was a mountain man selling a 1998 Boxster with a Carerra GT body kit on it. I was disgusted at first then I started looking at the pictures and It was found in an old collapsing barn in the mountains of western Pennsylvania. I am a fixer... the mechanics... I take things uncared for and bring them back to life or restore them better than they ever were. The farmer guy was super cool and said no idea how it got in his barn, but it has been there for years and was abandoned. So this is my project now.

So... it's an Outlaw. No big deal. I believe you've got a great looking car. Your find is unique. There's enough stock 986s running around. Get the mechanicals in order and sell it to a non-purist.

Those wheels definately need some spacers. 25 in the rear... 20 in the front. That'll change the entire presentation.

Oh... paint it yella.

Please keep us posted with updates. Hope it is an easy project and that you have a title since the farmer had no idea how it got there! (Or was he just saying that because his wife was present?)
