I have owned this car for 3 1/2 years and it has mainly been a show car for me, which has won and placed several times. The owner before me had it professionally painted and added the supercharger. The paint is about a 9.5 out of 10 with only a couple of tiny chips in hood. Convertible top is about an 8 out of 10 in looks, but has a small leak at the rear window and is missing a side clip on passenger side. Interior is about a 9 out of 10 with a small tear on left side of driver seat and a tiny tear in passenger seat. This has also seldomly been used at the track (road course 2 times / dragstrip 4 times). This beauty should go to someone who appreciates it would give it the loving care that I have. Thanks for looking!
