It's a conversion, but it's hardly the convertible it started out as.

Cool story and beautiful car. Love the shade of green. Some day I hope to do some epic road trips in my ’97 Z3 that I’ve owned for 15 years. I already have the trunk rack to add storage capacity to a vehicle that has barely any to begin with. Will need to pack light! I’m already starting to put some ideas together for an extended road trip for when the car turns 25 in 2022. The car has over 140,000 miles on it but still runs great.

Privileged. This story is a credit to the owner. I can’t hold it against him that I cannot relate. Such sour grapes might further sully a Comments section already fraught with pariah.

What a great story. Love it when people have such a long time line and relationship with their cars!

Have you seen that Seen-Through-Glass has copied this car with the latest 911T. He’s also taking it around the world.

What a great car and story of rediscovery. Few people get this type of connection with a car but it is really special for those of us who do. I like the luggage rack on top. I have an 2008 911 Carrera and struggle with the idea of adding a similar arrangement for extended road trips. While green is not a color I would likely ever purchase, it looks great on this model. Great video…
