I kicked around getting a Gen 2 as price was comparable to this car because it was in such great shape/low miles, but I was drawn to the originality and ridiculousness of the Gen 1. While mine does have A/C, no roof, door handles or side windows and the side exhaust make it stupid and brilliant at the same time. Sure, it isn’t the most practical because of those things, but I don’t think any of us bought these things for their practicality. As far as I’m concerned you can’t go wrong with any of them, just a matter of personal preference. At some point I’d like to get my hands on a Gen 2 GTS B/W, but for now I’m enjoying the hell out of this thing.
