An Interesting 930 / 959..Local To Me..Pics

Interesting hodge podge of wanting to be a 959 and obviously someone spent alot of $$$ on this car at some time judging from the ICE, Interior mods and of course the body conversion. I am not sure what the engine mods are but certainly intriguing, I would like to see the placement of the intercooler and what type of IC as well for example. I have never been a fan of these 959 conversions due to so many that look awful at least this one "looks" decent, according to the Victory ad the owner spent $80K on this car..yikes.

The car has been for sale for ages and is local to me here in Houston at Victory.

I've certainly seen worse but I'm not sure I would pay a premium for it.

Isn't CMW the group that built the billet cylinder heads that TurboKraft had issues with on Tom's monster?

Not as clean as the 959 replica built on a 993 C4, but this still looks better than 90% of the replicas out there.
Single turbo, single side mounted intercooler with CIS.
Yes, CMW builds (built?) those horrific billet cylinder heads.

They've had this for a while now. Stopped by last summer, during one of my way too many trips to Houston, and the car was there. I didn't really look at it closely - just a couple of cursory glances while I was looking at cars I was more serious about. What stuck out immediately was the yellowing headlights. Do these folks not watch late-night TV? There's some magic stuff out that'll make those headlights look like new. But wait, there's more!

No worse than a slant conversion IMO.

I recall the owner dropped it to 19K for about a week or so on CL before Victory came into the picture....
