Who cares what she says....shes a woman....

Tell her to go make some chocolate chip cookies. And then send me some in the mail.


Mike (Grinder) said it would be roughly $250-350 for shipping to the good side of the US. So that would make the total roughly $1800 before paint.

Meh I dunno.


It looks okay, but I don't think I'd ever want one. If someone actually did a fastback conversion on the car, not just a hardtop... That'd be a different story. I really miss the hatchback of my Z31 so it'd probably be something I'd like to have, but this just isn't me.

I hate the spoiler bit. If I had assloads of disposable income I might consider it, but that nasty lip would be the first thing to go.

Me too. If it is guaranteed refundable, I would lock in the price as well.

Yeah, looks like top = no trunk.

If it could become a hatchback somehow with the top I'd be all over that. o.o

Removable how? You actually have to take it off? Doesn't look like it can swing up...

I'm kind of thinking of this from a "getting groceries" perspective.

Ah then in that case its a sacrafice to make cause the trunklid has to come off in order for you to use the trunk. To me it doesnt matter but in know not everyone is willing to give up the ease of the oem trunk use.

Not really liking the look on that NB. Maybe the finished product on a decent car will change my mind though.

Sure, perhaps a few of these will change some minds.

Somehow, I suspect that the ChaserAero hardtop weighs less than the Autokonexion hardtop.
