Garage


Great intro and background Gabe. Basically guys, we decided to start FunfGruppen out of a perceived need for a site dedicated exclusively to the support of the 930 owner, from those who enjoy stock to those of you who like it brutally modded. All of this started as an outgrowth of the initial Turbopalooza events, which we had no idea would generate the kind of enthusiasm they have. FunfGruppen is a way for us to carry the spirit of the weekend all through the year. Our goal is obviously not to compete with the Pelican board, but to supplement it. First and foremost, we want the FG site to remain a 'grassroots' and non-PC site, engaging all of you guys and listening to what you want. Bottom line is that it's just another way to have fun through 930 ownership. I know that several of you guys are italian bike fans, and one of the models of FG for me is the underground site for Moto Guzzi, Officine Rossopuro (originally 'FirestarterGarage')which tailors to those with a passion for these early bikes by updating with new parts, etc.

Gabe and I are both feeling out way through this, and not really sure how it will evolve, but our mission is to support all of the guys out there with a love of these very special cars. Initally, as you see, the site is very simple, but we will soon be adding 'garage space' with the ability of memebers to login, a user-friendly members gallery, tech tips section, etc. The site will be a bulletin board and watering hole for 930 related events both here and in Europe, with related parephenalia for sale as well. One of our ultimate goals is to support guys building (as well as vendors of) specialty parts for the (mostly modded) 930. Guys such as Brian, Ben and Hargett and others who are dedicated to keeping these cars performing as good as they look. Hopefully, we will be able to compile somewhat of a database of knowledge for those wishing to do everything from turbo a stock 3.2 to a 3.5 monster build, by both collecting related Pelican threads and having input from guys like Jerry and Juan.

Well, that's about it. We welcome all input from you guys at all times to keep making the site better and better. Stayed tuned guys 'cause we r just getting started!
