Well due to a major life change which is forcing me to sell the T/A. If anyone is interested.
I'm asking $25,900. I have over $50,000 into the car but need a quick sale. The car has been getting a whole new interior over the last year and it is not done yet. If anyone wants it I could have it completed or I could just put the one back in that was in it. Its also posted over on Racing Junk.

I think Tracey did it himself. A clever guy.

You might want to hit him up over on TAC as he seems to frequent that site.

I did the Targa top myself. Did all the fabrication work. Keep in mind you can not just cut out the roof because these are unibody cars. My car has a full frame plus a 10 point cage in it. If this is something you really want to do I could help you. I spent hundreds of hours on it.

Hey guys I havnt been around in a long time on this site or over at TAC. I havnt been online on months. Going through some personal problems which I have pretty much worked out. Getting used to a whole new life.
Then I had some problems with my heart which really set me back. My car has been sitting for months because I have been to sick to work on it.
A long story with the interior, the short version the shop that the car was at for a year and a half scammed about 75 people now and the guy ended up in jail. Still undergoing sentencing in 10 different counties. So far hes up to 12 years in jail
I ended up getting my car back with a stripped out interior with all the original stuff missing. So I'm starting from scratch and I'm building a whole new sheet metal dash for it. I have the basic framing done now working on getting it closed it then I found a different place thats going to do all the fabric work.
I'll try to stop around more to keep you guys updated.

Wow. I am glad you are feeling better. Good luck with your car. It really seems like no one can be trusted these days. I hope everything gets back to the way you want it.

Well my heatth problems have a long way to go. My heart is bad and can not be fixed. There looking into some options now. I let it get me really down for a long time then desided I needed to move forward with my life.
I have worked on the car alittle bit. It has a long way to go. I dont have the money to buy any of the interior stuff it needs so for now its going to just have to sit till I can figure everything out and get some money.
