I don't even know if the A/C works, all the parts are there but I've never tried it, they never worked that good when new.

The car I purchased was described as a driver condition by the seller, black in color and original paint so I figured it needed paint. I never even asked about the interior figuring it was worn too. The drivers seat had the typical wear on the bolster, the rest looks good as new. A little shoe polish on the bolster fixed that.

The out side buffed out real well and now instead of a car I could drive like I stole it, I have 1 I drive very little because of condition and current market valuation.

I fell in love with these cars 30 years ago when in the car business and I still am today. Whats not to love, best looking and perfoming car of it's day and very few meet or exceed the standard even today.
I drive mine up to 100+ miles per drive, with my son as co-driver since he enjoys long drives, and I never take my 930 Slant out for a drive without my son.

I rarely use the A/C in mine even though it works.

Yeah, 930's are definitely better than today's supercars, in fact, mine is even faster than many of them
