In reply to # 204896 by hcallaway it fits right in with the rock solid Miata and i cannot tell if the big brother is a 911?
I commented to the guy who delivered the car that the Miata is the spiritual successor. I'm Nugget/David's girlfriend, BTW. The Miata's my daily.
The car up on the lift is a 2007 911 GT3 RS (a 997.1, in Porsche-lingo). It's our track car, and it works hard for its place in the garage.
Pete, thanks for the comments about the rust! I'm used to modern cars and have almost no frame of reference for a car of this age. I've driven someone else's TR7 and someone else's VW Type 3, but haven't really had my hands underneath them. Your comments are very encouraging.
I plan to wash the Sprite tomorrow and if things look ok, polish it, too. I'm used to working with the modern, clear coat paints. I know this won't be clear coat, and have adjusted materials for that, but is there anything else particular to the era or Sprite I need to know?
