    Default Cars and other crap

    JUst posting what I've been up to. I finally finished painting my '83 944 Porsche. 4 coats of black single stage urethane. Lots of block sanding with "black" . I'm rebuilding the rear Koni shocks now. FWIW, don't ever buy anything "Koni". Yes they're guaranteed for life but,,,A friend had Koni forks which wore out. He called Koni to get new ones and the agent said, "I guess they have exceeded their lifetime"...no warranty.
    I aolso have a '04 S4R that I have to build up and sell, also change my 748 trackbike into a street bike and put a 996 engine in it with V2 604 cams (same as SPS but billet)

    That's beautiful Marvin, and I can only dream about how much fun it must be in those western North Carolina mountains of yours.

    Had the 968 Clubsport version for a couple of years............I still miss that car. Drove also the 3.0 litre 944 version as a mate had one in black.........nice colour.

    Yes Porsche make nice cars , yes I,m a fan/owner of all things Porsche since being able to afford my first one in 1986. Current one is a 997 2S 3.8 Litre.

    Enjoy ........... car looks great.

    Thanks all ! Yes, just a 944 which nobody wants so they are cheap. (just now starting to go up in price)(I remember when you could buy a good 911 for 5K !!)
    But still nice cars, easy to maintain and reliable. 25-30 mpg on regular gas.
    Years ago I had several 356's which I wish I had never sold.
