swapped the SL for a genuine berlina turbo wagon.wanna keep it fairly stock looking(unmolested). I needa get another turbo hubcap as the previous owner lost one. putting some black venetians in it,maybe a steering wheel and a no holes cooler kit and just drive the thing.

its great to have red interior again also!











let me know what ya think
