Just what the hell color is that car?

Can you find out for me when you go and pick it up? I'm talking paint code, name, the whole 9 yards.

That color is so weird..... i like it.

To satisfy my own curiousity, let us know what sort of shape the car is in when you pick up the top.

It's in Vegas, so there's some sun fading. But it does look like a sweet, unmolested NB.

"this car is for my daily uses."





Looks like a nice car. Anyway, I'll end the threadjack. Glad you found a good HT.

Removed the link til Jeff has his hardtop in hand.

It almost fit in the wagon! Damn! 3 straps a ton of rags, duck tape to keep the rags from flapping around. Let's do this!

Sketchy it looked, sketchy it was not! It didn't budge an inch.









Really really good. All the seals are perfect too.

I'd take a picture of my odometer but it would just make the jellies worse.

It's even a little sad, that you will have to paint this nice hardtop... Nice find!

I feel a little guilty...a little. I'm going to do the masking job myself to ensure no over spray.

Currently going OCD on organizing the wire harness and connections for you Zaphod. Hopefully I can make it as clear as possible.

Hmmm . . . maybe that hardtop was a worthwhile aero mod for the VW?

Normally, I'd agree. But it's going on one of the nicest Miatas in existence, so . . . .
