Steve,

It's in work. I have to get my web designer engaged though and that is a somewhat time consuming process. I'm not paying for his services so I can't push the guy too hard. Right now I'm flat on my back. I hurt it Sunday moving stuff around in the garage so I have been living on Pelican collecting more ideas...

Check the video out though you will enjoy it....

About this time last year, a guy brought his white 77 turbo targa to my house to learn how to change the oil. I've never seen a 77 turbo targa, so I said bring it over and lets take a look. It ended up being a turbo look (aftermarket too with a poor paint job) leaking targa with a genuine turbo moniker attached to an aftermarket fiberglass whale tail. I did not have the courage to ask how much he paid for his new toy after I explained what he really had. Sorry, but he asked me where the turbo was and at that time, I HAD to tell him what he had.

Funny but about 6 months ago I was in Michigan driving back from dinner to my hotel and there was a 911 on the side of road. I stopped to help him. I had to break the news to him that it wasn't a turbo and the problem that caused it to stop was the dreaded DME relay...
It's amazing what people buy without having a clue.

I almost fell out of my chair when he pulled up the lid, WOW as a new car dealer I am glad to say I have never had that particular vintage of sheer stupidity.

I just spit my drink out I was laughing so hard when he popped the deck lid. How do people make it sometimes ? I couldn't even imagine not doing your research on the vehicle's you are planning to buy or sell , especially when it is your business to know. I mean at least know what the obvious things are to look for. I may take him a kit car Lambo and sell it to him for some quick cash , Hmmm what was that address again???? Dizam!

The best and funniest part is that the camera tightens up on the decklid and it opens as if with great deliberation to reveal a normally aspirated motor. What the hell...

And wasn't his last piece of advise to "go through a reputable dealer"? To think he had the nerve to post this on YouTube for the world to see. Guaranteed to improve his used car sales. I wouldn't buy a Poarsh from him.

did you see those puny rotors on that car? They didn't even look like 3.2 Carrera rotors. May 70's era? Maybe we should "edit" the video and entitle it; "How to spot a phony 930 slantnose."

It's really kind of hard to miss the intercooler on a turbo (called a clue)....I mean it's not exactly a discreet part that hides behind the intake somewhere. He also said....If you're going to spend $45K on a car.....wonder if he meant that slantnose turbo?? I wonder what the rest of that conversion looked like.

Since I don't understand a word that guy was saying since I'm hard of hearing. Anyhow, that's really lame if he expected one to believe that his car is a turbo and more so if he think his is! Maybe we should give him the benefit of the doubt since he may be familar with a 997 turbo that does not have its intercoolers mounted on top like ours. On a second thought, nope...no excuse!
