This White over burgundy Reatta is sitting out front of a car lot called Draeger in Spring Lake. I've looked at it twice now and it is gorgeous. The miles may be low as it still sports a blue plate. It has obviously been detailed very recently. It's the first suede bolstered car I've seen in person.

Everything from the wheels to the taillights looks pristine. I work nights, so I haven't been able to contact the owners of the lot. I'd love to know the production date and such. I'd really love to have a test drive of it :)

Anyway, I thought I'd share the info here in case anyone was interested. I'd call Draeger Auto Sales about it because I know little else about it.

It's an early one for sure, I am pretty sure they started the Reatta's in 88 at 900000 so 900638 would have been the 638th one built. 4708 Built so you can see early. Sounds like a good one to get ahold of.

If my fiancee would let me I would have bought it lol. It's a beautiful car and I want one with the touch screen. The suede bolsters and great collector condition would just be that much better. If I had permission and space I would have a black 91 with flame red interior also.

I learned a long time ago if I am with someone that I have to ask permission to do something I am with the wrong person. Now if it's a mutual discussion and a agreed upon decision then that's another story.

Would you be happy with just one if that white one was it? Maybe a good compromise would be to buy it and sell the other two. I have done that many times in the past, I bought a better or more desirable car and got rid of one or two from the group.

We had already discussed no more Reattas until situations change. I don't have the space, and I am all for letting one or both 90s go to get a hold of an early car OR a vert, but it absolutely has to be the right car. The only issue I have with this one is the interior color. I would much rather have a red over tan with suede. So realistically, she's keeping me in check so I don't buy more than I can take care of. It was an agreement we came to when I WASN'T in the puppy love stage we all get when we see a nice car.

The couple that I have seen the dark red suede has been pretty faded looking compared to the rest of the seat, how was this ones suede?

My scrub 88 has suede, and is burgundy. It looks rather poor due to fading (and drivers side is badly worn through on outboard edge). I expect I will redo them with ultrasuede (synthetic) in an effort to stay quasi-true to the orignal. The cost of real suede makes using it a non-starter for me.

This looks like a pretty nice car. I'd also be curious about mileage and price (just to know, not to buy).

It hasn't been feasible for me to check the car out during daylight. They just moved it today, so perhaps info is posted in the window now. I will investigate and post the results.
