If you want a tub for a 934 replica.. my brother in law Phil has one that can be fixed and it already has a full cage welded in it and all. You should contach him.. he bought it to fix it up and then he stumbled into a 924 race car that he bought. let me know if you are serious about the tub I'll pass his e-mail on to you.

Pics like this suck! but, that being said.. I will never stop tracking my SC or 930! I think [B][I]Turbos are born to be on the tack.. they accell out there! there is nothing like a 930.
So.. he wrecked it.. learn from that.. and go buy another one.

After everything I just said.... If it were mine I'd ****! haahaha!

Those pictures were/are tough to stomach!!! When people ask me why I don't take my car to the track and really put her through her paces, I generally remind them that if you can't afford to leave the car at the track (from a shunt), you shouldn't be on it. Plus I lack the skillz and experience...

The 930 population is reducing each time this happens.

I say - If you have the means to restore or bring it back to at least track conditions, do it.

Other than that, sadly, this just makes the rest of the 930's that much more valuable! Kind of a mixed bag of reality!

They can be a handful at the track when the boost kicks in. It takes time and patience to learn how to drive one. And even then, as you go faster and faster, your skills need to keep up. Driving our cars on the track is an incredible experience though.

Gary your car is incredible, I think I'd feel bad tracking it, that and I don't have the kind of $$$$$ that its worth laying around.

Rory, I remember Phils 930, it was half guards red and half primer last I saw it. He had just purchased it off John at the time. what happened to it?

Please no one call me sick, but I think I would equate losing my 930 to a family member dying after the amount of time and energy I put into it.
Again I may be crazy, but I look at that car like it was my child.
