The body panels are probably fiberglass. There is nothing on that from before 2014.

I like the round top rails vs angle.

I'd rather have an enclosed box then the wire mesh. Dry storage is always nice.

I have never seen a trailer with round top rails. I know I have had lots of straps get frayed or cut on angle rails before. wouldn't happen with the round rail.

It's an upgraded feature. That's exactly why I want the D rings, anything low and I'll have to hook over the side. Fuck that, I have nice straps and I'm not going to use corner protectors all the time

I don't think Ken block cared or he wouldn't have done that to a 71 mustang haha

The one I test drove was 21k I think they ended up getting rid of it for like 19,500... What a steal that guy got...

So you want to pay around 60k for a car? BMW,ford,Chevy,Audi,Mercedes,Porsche, you can't even get a new boxster for less than 40k now

hell yea. If I'm gonna get a performance car, I'm gonna get an actual, well-rounded performance car. A C7, 911, ctsv, Z/28, C63amg things like those that handle exceptionally well, accelerate faster than most anything on the road and can be driven comfortably every day as a daily driver. Obviously they're a pretty decent amount of money, but if I'm looking for a performance car, I want one that won't get shown up by any other car on the road.

Wasn't the point. The point was the 'only one early muscle car I would drive' crowd.

There will always be a faster car. I can't justify 100k for the 911 either, its not enough car to justify that. Maybe the gt3 but the others aren't, I'd take a Cayman over the 911 I think they look way better and handle like a dream cause mid engine/rwd. And why go z28 when you could get a more capable corvette for the price?

I've heard many people say the only thing that's keeping the Boxster/Cayman below the 911 is the engine, and its on purpose so that they don't outsell the 911 performance-wise. Just like Pinocchio said, nothing but untapped potential.

I can't argue with you about preferences on the looks of the cars, but have you driven a 991 911? I feel like you wouldn't be saying it's not enough car to justify the price of you have. And I was just giving examples when I said mentioned the Z28. If it was between the z28 and the c7 z06, it just comes down the camaro/corvette personal preference, even tho the z06 will outperform it
