Default Official 850 Photo Gallery

I see a lot of threads in here about issues and problems people are having. I think we need at least one thread that is dedicated to celebrating these great cars! I propose a thread where people can showcase their work and post pictures of the vehicles for others to admire.

Here's mine:



It's a 1995 850 Turbo. I bought it during the summer of 2010 and it had 45k miles. It currently has 60k. I haven't really done anything to upgrade it (I mean, how do you improve on perfection?), but I work hard to maintain it and ensure it'll keep running for a few more hundred thousand miles. It came with just about every option available at the time and I enjoy showing up friends who have newer cars that do much less.

LOL, here is my Panther. It has V70 tail lights, V70 roof rack, V70 roof trim (catches rain better), VW wiper relay (adjustable), S70 SC-815 stereo cassette/cd player with S90 SC-816 faceplate, installing a tow hitch soon, and working on a few other small things. I'll update the pic since I haven't taken any since I dyed my bumpers. Also, my photo gallery is in my signature.





Was wondering if I should add the engine bay pic then I thought, guys are always wanting to know "what's under the hood" so I added it (reminds me a little kids showing each other their muscles).

Here is my '96 Platinum Turbo Wagon: 188000 miles and still strong.

She just got a new lower control arms and a complete steering rack and rear sway bar. Next up are new axles, front brakes (should I do a Big Brake upgrade), thinking about new springs all around (didn't do that when I installed the Bilstein HD)(don't really want to lower it)(camping car too) and looking for a different set of 16" wheels Like the Xenia's or something similiar.
