    I'm a happy new owner of 690. She has been well taken care of and is a great ride. She charged up to 181 and settled to 179. Previous owner lovingly wrapped her beautiful yellow with a nice metallic black. I have been torn about what to do because I love fast cars and fast women.....I decided to peel off a few panels and go bumble bee for a while. I'm just waiting to get my yellow/black door panel.

    I'm in love!

    Congrats!

    It looks quite different than when I owned it...but I am sure it is the same fun car! Enjoy.

    Congrats as well, @twiersum! FWIW, with so few Brilliant Yellows out there, my vote would be for a full unwrap back to her former glory. BTW, is the hitch still attached?

    Wow, that is a cool color combo! Never seen a yellow and black roadster, quite unique! Enjoy her, I've seen allot of history of images over the last year where she appeared, she has been very popular within the forum as one of the few yellow Roadsters. That being said, the new facelift looks great!

    yup, still has hitch. I love the yellow but I like the protection and I figured I'd undress her slowly. I am enjoying the unique flavor of the black/yellow. Eventually she'll be yellow with some black highlights and black wheels.
