First off, just to let all of you guys know, the Blackbird K3 has gone to as good a home as it possibly can... that of D-Zug Products. Gabe, the spirit of what you have done in the form of the Blackbird K3 will continue to be kept alive and well at her new roost. The creative energy instilled by Gabe in the Blackbird over the last three years, supplemented by the hands of many of you guys reading this (Paul K, D-man, Frank and others) , will continue through the development and bringing to market of products that will benefit all of us who love the 911 and 930 platform. Products previously thought unobtanium will become obtanium again through testing and reverse engineering on the Blackbird. The Blackbird will serve as an R/D platform, rolling test bed, track rat, and promotional vehicle for D-Zug Products. Gabe, you put your heart and soul into the BK3 and it is an honor for D-Zug products to keep her Zork flames alive and well.

Ultimately Gabe, as has been said many times, it is not about the cars, but about the people. What you have accomplished through building the Blackbird K3 is worth every penny in the inspiration, camaraderie, friendship and fun times that it has engendered between you, me, Pete and everyone else here on this forum. The Turbopaloozas (the next one which are in the stages of planning), the sprited forum discussions, the late night wrenching/ cussing/drinking sessions when trying to get the Blackbird going (or not going), backroad blasting session and encounters with the law, are the memories that ultimately, life is made of.

Relax and take a breather bro. We look forward to you getting back safely from Afganistan, and rest easy with the knowledge that the best is yet to come!
