I'm up in Dallas, but I head down to Austin relatively often. Merkur needs a bit more love before she can make that drive though.

I used to live in Lakeway, had a white 89 back in 2001, and then my '86 Rapido in Pflugerville in 2014. I've now moved to the Odessa/Midland area, help me GOD lol...

I currently still have the 86 Rapido and now have an 89 automatic as well. Rosso Red / Radiant Red.

Can you put up some pics of the Rapido? That would be cool.

God, I wish I could easily upload pics to forums, I put a set of 12 pics on the facebook group, but I don't think I've done it here yet. Let me see about getting an account for uploading pics to a site so I can link them.

Car only has 46k and looks just about new. Has all the stage 2 goodies and some pretty rare work-style wheels, similar to the Ronal Turbos. It won a few awards at Carlisle, although that was before I bought it. I never went unfortunately. :(

It would be cool if you could make that rapido panel between the taillights. Couldn't be all that hard to manufacture.
