    i will start this series of "show your ..." with the engine area

    i think a catalog of the different areas of the coupes might be very valuable to others that wanted to know where to start a restoration, alternatives, possibilities, ideas,...

    there are plenty of threads asking about a radio setup, how seats look like,...

    so lets see if we can cover the whole car

    please add a little description of the car, year, model, variations,...
