Finally Got The Beast

Hi everyone After so many years of looking for the right one I can said I think I found my lost love. Its an 86 with 62K miles with all service records from 15K miles. No damage of any kind. The PPI checked out great. They told me I was very lucky to be buying this one. They said someone really took care of it and the service on it was top notch.

The only two things he did to it was changing the steering wheel and radio but gave the stock ones to me.

Tell me what you guys think.

Car is fantastic. Seems well bought. You must have a critical eye. Even the trim/rubber looks new. Color combo is extraordinary. Congratulations, my friend...

Welcome to the club!!! were in Md are you???

Now you have to consider your engine mods... I know you will want to keep it stock....for a while....but the bug will get you.... and when it does..the car only gets better and better!!

Thanks guys. No I never wait to mod I have an 07 Jeep SRT8 with only 189 miles on it and had already added Magnaflow exhaust, hid's, painted side moldings, air horns and a few other thing.

I also just sold My E55 which was lowered and had custom 20" wheels installed in the first few week of owning it. I'm thinking of selling the Jeep if anyone know someone that might want one.

I wont mess around with this engine to much, just the exhaust, 3.6L wheels and H4 lights.

Beautiful 930! I'm looking at a couple locally and they're both 79s. One black and the other is Guards Red. Hopefully I'll be joining the club shortly.

Yeah, I'm kind of partial to the 1979 Guards Red one.

Congrats, that is an awsome color combo. I am all about the rare colors just like my tobacco metalic 79 930.

whats your asking price on that Jeep? I was thinking of doing an SRT8 to replace my mileage whore, The only thing is b/c of tax purposes I need to either lease or keep the payment low.

OK one more!...

Nice car, great color combo.. the changes made (wheel and radio) were spot on... add a set of H4 or H5 headlights and you're there. Uhh, that is until the need for "more" hits!!

Oh, what part of MD are you in? There are several of us Turb guys around and the MD/VA area is quite active with events.

Enjoy it!!!

Paul
