1979 930 New member... almost ready.



Hello everyone.
I've been the happy third owner of this 1979 930 with came to me (at Houston) from Seattle with 47k miles on it. I've had it for 10 months, and most of it has been spent re-vamping the suspension, brakes, transmission, exhaust, intake, a/c, as well as sorting out all issues relative to it's age. All this has been an incredible experience thanks mostly to the guys at Koby Motors in Houston. Specially J.Leon who has passionately embarked with me thru this project. It is almost ready and completely stock. The engine is purring perfectly and suspension set-up is right where I love it. I will soon rip it out on local tracks and roads but first I'll post a complete build thread. I am so very happy with this car, turbos are so addictive to drive. I have read intensively all your posts regarding everything turbo and sorted out many doubts in the process. My thanks to you for the information and the inspiration.
Cheers
MD

A beauty for sure! Looks like it's got about 10 coats of clear on it....almost hurts my eyes.

We're gonna need a few more picts to wet the appetite of the forum gods. And yes, your build sheet as well.

Nice looking car. I have a feeling there will be 2 more on the road this summer if Jim and I get our butts in gear.
