just got my 1978 930 #170

First 930 for me. Had a 86 targa a few years ago. It arrived from California this afternoon. First impressions; fast and solid. Second, found out it was resprayed. Oh well I guess. It looks beautiful. I didn't like the surprise, however.

Pics not downloading.
Resprayed, oh well, no garage queen. When do you start the EFI project?

I have to say, its the best looking 911 I've ever seen. I was planning on buying a Ferrari and then this showed up. Has headers, no cats, ss brakes lines, lowered, Blisteins, rebuild brakes, new clutch. 46k miles. Oh, and a respray.

Not sure, but the interior looks like new. Maybe it is??? I know he recovered the seats with Porsche hides...

Looks great! Nothing wrong with a respray, as long as it was done properly. Heck some of the worlds most expensive collectible cars have been resprayed/restored. Have fun with it.

Well the paint looks great, but we can see the tape lines in the cracks and creases... But then the weather striping looks new.. no way that's original (or desirable) in a 35 year old car. Rubber just doesn't hold up like that.

I'd look at it this way, since its not all original, you can drive it and enjoy it more! I hate driving around in perfect examples...I'm always paranoid something terrible is going to happen. Beautiful car, enjoy her in good health!

Are you saying you'd rather have cracking rubber? This is a drivers car not a car for "chasing classic cars". Iunderstand not knowing the condition or it not being disclosed but I'd guess you'd have is sprayed and replace the rubber yourself anyway. Love the seats, Cool car enjoy!

I noticed the seats and carpets are all the same color ( and look new ) but the dash is slightly lighter. Is there a easy way to die the dash to match? I can live with it but thought I'd ask.

No. Thats the plus side. It looks like all the rubber weather stripping is new. That's good news to me.

looks nice.

respray? depends on what you paid.

i told the guy i bought mine from i DONT like surprises. i would rather know up front.
i got a BIG one. he told me it was a RUF 3.4 with cams and LSD. NOT!
i should have had him send me the paperwork before i bought it. but i did not feel like i could not trust what he said.
i dont think he knew what it had in it. i am still happy with it. with the stuff on it, i would have just as much or more in it to get it where it is, plus it is very low miles, original paint, very nice inside.

Love seeing these cars go to the right people I've been interested in WWII Mustang P-51's lately for the same reason I love our 930's. There is an aura about these cars, smell, look with and without resprays , sound, etc that is no longer found in cars. They have character and everyone is unique with a history.

Enjoy your car bud! Gorgeous.

It's a 3.3 78 RoW sunroof delete. Engine number #111. It's a driver al day. It needs a respray desperately, but I'm having too much fun with it.

Love the condition/color of the interior.. Cork was very popular in 78/79. My interior is the same color... car #2 for 1978.
