Who are you, and what have you done with Todd?

You drove this car across country with a bicycle strapped to the tea tray spoiler using bungie cords and your dog sitting in the front seat. It's the tracdog, what's the point of it if you're going to stress about value?

As you know, mods will often hurt value when a car becomes a hot "collector commodity". My question is how much value is lost and relative to what base? Tracdog isn't going to command a market premium anyway. If we assume the market value of 930s rises modestly over the next few years (or decades), whether tracdog has been cut or not it's not going to be your rolling 401(k). If we suppose for a moment that the 930 is the next RS Carrera, then someone will pay stupid money for it (just the VIN, really) even if you build one of those ugly frankenporsches using Fiero, Corvette, TransAm body parts.

Todd,
lets not kidd ourselves here, your tracdog isn't going to win a concours show anytime in the near future and I dont picture you restoring it and putting it on the market, and god knows what kind of bondo/bodywork is underneath that awesome 10 footer paint job. go ahead, cut the flares off of her. if it makes you feel better get some glass front fenders and at least you'll save 2 of the 4 flares. Now lets talk EFI and twin turbos and coil overs

Ok, back OT... Hack the car up and really make it to your liking. If this was your sole car, I would say "Keep it all original" but you have two!

good eye... maybe he had the back jacked up in the air and let it back down on the ground and hasn't moved the car to reposition the rear wheel camber yet.

Cut them. They are already welded on in the first place. I love 934's.
