Winter greetings from Germany!

Postby Trofeo1987 » Sat Jan 16, 2016 11:23 am

Good evening,

I am one of the not-so-many Toronado drivers from Europe. My vehicle is a 1987-issue Troféo I bought in July 2014. I (and the mechanics I trust) have already refurbished a lot, but the really hard work hasn't been done yet: new paint.

Nice weekend everybody!

It's still work in progress: Remainders of several accidents still have to be removed. What I have already done (not alone; I had to seek a little professional help) is to refurbish the front (headlight & turn signal covers, grille) by using parts of the 1986 issue. The last work was a turn signal lever replacement which ended up in having to replace the switch as well. What will also be necessary is a new varnish after which I stongly hope it will be eligible for vintage car status. :D

That's a good looking car. I'm sure your fellow motorists have no idea what it is. The grill looks good.

It's gonna look really good in slightly more than one year. Of course I would prefer a first-generation Toronado, but my wallet isn't full enough to pay it. :-( Nevertheless I like my 4th generation one.
