a 968 CS! I would love a 968 and briefly looked at one last year - I remember when they were £15k - £20k! :cry: What a fantastic colour
Cheers Oli; 2 years to find a CS in Riviera Blue. We got there in the end. Dream spec, body colour hardback Recaro's, not even a radio! I had my first 944 in 2003 and remember a '68 CS at £12k..... :cryhard:
Congrats, a fabulous colour! Speed yellow with matching wheels for me which ideally I'd like to park next to a yellow on yellow 205 rallye. Don't judge my poor taste!

Yep, very cool and exquisite taste I’d say.

Besides, if you want poor taste, you could of said the Skoda Felicia “Fun” :wink:

I was in your thread anticipating an update, instead I'll take the opportunity to state that the Skoda Fun rear seats are glorious and I saw an exceptionally ratty example just a couple of days before your post!

No updates here I’m afraid. The car has slipped back into that parallel universe called a one-man-band tradesman that has no concept of time.

Yeah the rear seats are bonkers! I note the extremely rare Felicia Fun has actually 4x more survivors than 480 Turbos….. :lol:
