Oh, and the guy asked: "Are those chrome beauty rims on the wheels?". I about kneed him in the groin until he realized his mistake. He then said: "Oh......nice wheels!". Of course the Porsche emblem end caps weren't on so he didn't really know what he had in his hands.
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.
