Ive noticed there have been a few threads posted on here recently abut targa 1gs.

I was looking around on my computer and came across some pics I have had for a while of a clean white 2g targa top.

Here they are, it looks really good, considering its not factory. If the owner is on here, got any more pics?
















Hope you enjoy!

Damn! Now that was a bold move.
Thumb's Up. I like the re-enforcement in the cage. See if you can encorporate the 93-98 Supra "sport-roof" latches for a more factory look. Also try to find a car and cut the roof off of a non-sunroof donar.

All in all I Dig It.

Good luck finding a shop that will do that for you. Nobody around my area will take the liabality. The was never designed for it and it's a big lawsuit if anything happens.
All in all it's cool, but doubtful anyone else will get it done.

Gotta find some pics of this guys near my base. He's also got a white one that used to be black. Sick. Rotora calipers (he's sponsored), FP3065, Venom intake mani, the works. I do know that he has pics of it on tuners.

username that owned it on tuners was dre99gsx or something like that. i believe last i saw it was making over 500awhp. something to consider about it being a targa top is that you need a cage put in so that way the body doesnt get twisted with it being awd. since removing part of the roof takes away from the structural integrity.

i would never do that. Too much of a risk. I mean if you have the time, money and want the risk of messing things up, than by all means do it. I know I wouldn't. Plus it doesnt look all that good personally. I mean convertiable aren't that much different
