I had a two door. It's the only car I've cut the top off with a "jaws of 
life" and the value went up. The inboard brakes were a nightmare, the motor 
mounts always broke, killing the downpipe with it, and you covered all the 
other problems. Jez, I wonder why the 924 engine was problemmatic. Anyhow, I 
paid $50 for it, and had a blast! I'd love to have one today just for the 
memories. Not to drive anywhere long distance, though.

Oh, and the "wood" was vinyl. Same on the Foxes.
