I have tried calling around. Right now I am going to hold off on the car purchase and purchase of smog equipment.

It was a '79 in very very good condition, full records, great modifications all for a good price. However, given the location (travel costs to see the car), shipping/driving costs, cost of smog equipment, cost of installing (which would be my time) I think I could get a good 86-88 for around the same total. I am not too happy about it, but I didn't want to get the car home and have it registered as non-driving until I got all the stuff on. True, I could take my chances at a few smog centers that I am sure have never seen a 930 engine compartment, but it is still a risk. You never know, the guy could be an Porsche nut.

I thought this one was a go, and after all this time looking, I am still second guessing whether I should just do it. I am sure there will be others though.
