1990 Silver Reatta Coupe - Central North Carolina (Raleigh Area)


Recommended Posts

Reatta Enthusiast needing to make room for a family.

I was gifted my 1990 silver Reatta coupe from my grandfather, and have put considerable time and energy into reconditioning it to its original glory. I love this car, and enjoy the time I have spent working on it. Unfortunately, with a toddler and another on the way, I’m realizing how impractical it is to keep a 2 seater in my garage. I wish I didn’t have to part with my Reatta, but I need to make room (both physically and financially) for a more practical family car. I hope that my Reatta will go to someone who enjoys this unique vehicle as much as I do.
