That car is nice, but it is begging to be white from top to bottom. Such would look amazing, inspiring visions of the protoype pearlescent white SPG's. Also, $3,000 is a steal for a c900 with that package and condition.

Yeah I'd do all white with a black interior, lowered on Shelby minilites.

Unfortunately the R-word comes up and suddenly it doesn't seem like such a great deal. Too bad.

rust does suck, but sooner or later We as c900 people are going to have to deal with it. these cars are at best 17 years old now. and mostly sold in new england.

i think we need to figure this one out

I agree Mike, there are way way way too many C900s being sent to the junkyard because of fender and hatch rust but are sound structurally. The problem is that the common owner of these cars just would not care enough or know enough to deal with rust.

I agree that most have unrealistic expectations for 20 year old, well used, well weathered giant pieces of steel. At the same time though, I say to let them send them to the crusher. While it's a shame that many people don't have the skill or inclination to weld and do body work, there will be a thinning of the herd in terms of c900 population. Too bad because there's many that can be saved, but it will help increase value and rarity for remaining c900s....a good thing considering several hundred thousand of the model were made. I can see the situation now, 10 years down the line.....a nice c900 will be ridiculously hard to find and those who have lived the battle to keep their cars on the road in good condition will all benefit.

how rare is this car/ kit????
First year of the indestructible 16 valve turbo engine,that interior color (which is in crazy good condition), the fact that it has leather (lots came with cloth), the body kit,the louvers,the Inca wheels (which may be a bit out of place, but they work for me), and the overall look of this 25 year old car............It's pretty f'n rare
