Yeah brother, the smell can't be described....I'm with you. Just little things like a whiff of smoke in the air - as the blood pressure rises - brings back memories best forgotten. Your loss was a thousand times beyond mine.

I just thought I would share the pre and post picture, what a "proper" and "improper" 930 should look like. I may just have to have a large garage poster made of this pict to remind myself, keep the PTSD alive, ya know?

We all store memories throughout our lives, but unfortunately we don't have a "delete" button. This one, for me, changed how I look at humanity. The selfless giving and support just floored me and taught me a priceless lesson that I'll never forget.
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
