I wonder if I should…

So I keep thinking about all the different nutty things I could do to the Porsche this upcoming winter… The picture below (which should flip every two seconds) is some minor bodywork, and then a nine degree rake on the front windshield (so basically the roof gets sectioned, the pillars are cut, it's tilted back nine degrees, the side windows are replaced with lexan, and the lines of the car are filled back in). I don't know yet whether it would ruin the look of the car or not. It's pretty hard to tell from this side-view mockup, but I have the feeling it would make the car look freakishly exotic…

I've seen this done before to Fieros but never on a Porsche.

I have to admit that I really want to go to a toy store right now and buy myself a plastic 996 model that I can cut apart and see how this looks from all angles. I don't know if there's a certain Porsche “essence” that might be lost by changing the lines so much?

Oh yeah, and Jon and I are doing a little rewiring of the house today to fix one of the many shortcomings this mass-produced townhouse has. I hope my landlord doesn't read this blog (just kidding, I'm not doing any real damage, honest — just want to do a little re-wiring so as to make this temporarily stalled radio re-launch easier). Other than that, picking up some new computers tomorrow…

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
