LOL. You should hear him! He doesn't send an email without telling me to keep it! Of course I'm going to miss the guys at the track until I can get back there.

does that color coded engine lid support go with it? Beautiful car Rocket...I'm somewhat surprised that you're thinking about putting it on the market....but I also understand that oftentimes it's the pursuit of perfection or a particular objective that drives us....once you get there, some of the challenge and momentum goes out of it and the desire for another challenge arrises.

LOL. Hard to believe you can powdercoat a cut broom stick to match the engine...

SandMan (Dell):

The way this will work is, all potential buyers must come through me prior to closing the deal with Jimbo.

The potential buyers will mystically disappear (Sopranos style more than likely), and eventually all potential buyers will be eliminated, thus leaving the car in Jim's hands, and eventually back at the track with me

For those not in the know, seeing these two - Brian and Jim - scorching the asphalt at Virginia International Raceway (VIR), in their 930s, made for some pretty clear evidence regarding what one of these machines is capable of! These guys just killed!

Dam Jim I hate to see you sell that beauty
You helped me so much on that other forum when I first bought my 930 (gearbox oil changing/Air cleaner/Yada Yada)

If you sell, please visit here and post as I always read your advice

Just keep it.

Once it's gone, your gonna miss it.

I've driven mine less than 500 miles in the past year. I've got the growing family and every weekend there's something that takes me away from my hobbies. I've thought about selling mine, but I don't need the money and on those rare moments I'm able to get away the car still puts a smile on my face.

Don't do it.....you'll be sorry.
