This is my 92 Cabriolet. Fairly stock with a few nice touches. Almost all the car has been repainted; the front from the previous owner running a bra, rear arches and quarter panel from getting backed into. The engine is stock and everything works great. I have access to an auto repair shop so i think i'm going to drop a 2 liter 16v in with minor adjustments and run it off my digi im currently running.
I recently put on Borbet Type CA 15s. back in january i got some then this summer, someone jacked them in a movie parkinglot. talk about bad day. i sucked it us and bought the same wheels over again. i think they look great!
My head unit is a Pioneer Premier deck. it has alot of features like front and rear pre amp outputs as well as a pair of sub outputs. it has alot of adjustments and features that i do not prefer so next will be an Alpine.

those mudlights are pretty convenient. I like the carpet too, how'd you do that? come check mine otu
Not much I can say that I would change about your cabby, it really looks good! Im not a bg fan of the clipper kit, but yours looks very nice, and clean. I like cars that have less, that are era spicific, and detailed. And you have all that. The only thing I can even think of telling you is getting a good set of coilovers to lower it a little. Because you have the clipper kit, you wouldnt have to lower it much to get that "sweet" look, but i think that is the only thing looks wise your car needs.
As far as motor upgrades, I would sit down and really think of what your trying to do first. A little more getty up, sleeper, corner carver, daily driver, all out race car, etc... If a little more getty up is all your looking for, then I would go with a 80% kit, stage 2 clutch p.plate, bearing, TT exhaust, Autotech cams. If you want a sleeper, then same as getty up, but 2L 16v swap, P&P heads, and megasquirt... You get the idea. You have to really think about what you want to do first. A 270 cam isnt going to do anything if you dont have exhaust, and 80% kit in it first, youll just have extra unusable power.
I will be the first on your guest book! Looks cool, reminds me to mine from that front picture. Would be nice to see more pics. If you want decent power without spending crazy amounts of money, go for a 270* sport camshaft with an adjustable cam gear, that way you can play with your power band depending on your driving style. Throw a header in and you'll enjoy about 125 hp at the crank. Then drop it a little and you'll be set...good luck!
