    What's this all about - how many 959s does this guy have?

    I believe he converts them to US spec.

    Very interesting - thanks. Really interesting letter in that Rennlist link too!

    And here I thought Canepa just did aftermarket work to SUVs.

    i think there were some threads on this on the old board over the last few months. i know there's a 959 owner (THAT 959 owner?) on http://www.6speedonline.com who was none too happy and had a lot of educational things to post about 959s.

    I dont understand why anyone would want a 959 now. They are ugly, and a Gt2 is just as quick.

    Your welcome. I think that place looks A LOT like a chop shop. Theres even a Bugatti 110 in there!

    But Allan, with the GT2 you miss out on all the time and money spent doing the conversion! Where's the old sense of adventure.

    The 959 is a much rarer and more special car. It's not always about faster, you know.

    hell - my 550 would blow doors off a 250 GTO.

    I never liked the 959. Too much gizmos..id rather a good Turbo Leichtbau over it !

    ...and don't forget that when the 959 came out, it was SO far ahead of its time that no one knew what to think...

    that said, I'd still take a 550 any day of the week and twice on Sundays :)
