CDT is a pretty interesting story in itself. They sold some tweaked-up roadcars too didn't they?

I remember a piece on Fast Fours and Rotaries waaay back in the late 80s covering those CDT roadcars.

I always wondered if they sold very many though.

Rear wing, along with the moulded plastic mudflaps and windsplits [black strips on the gaurds] are all factory Gemini ZZ/Z stuff.

Just noticed it was missing the front lip paul?

over all she's not to bad and i think it will be a pretty straight forward restoration.
the wost rust is in the boot floor(like most gemini's) and the c pillar and even thats not too bad
