1986 930

For your viewing pleasure, here is my '86 930 I bought last fall. I looked at many, many 930s when I decided to get back into the game. This car stood out among all the contenders, it was very solid.
This is a very interesting car, A doctor bought it back in 1986 and took tourist delivery, it still has all of the tourist delivery papers and maps! I am the third owner, the car has been very well cared for in it's life. It just turned 100k miles and runs like a champ. Great compression and leakdown numbers, no smoke, no leaks. Original paint in excellent condition. A great example of condition over miles.
I replaced all four Bilstein sport shocks, new bushings, brake pads etc. Mods include a dual outlet Borla exhaust, Momo steering wheel and shift knob, Patrick Motorsports strut bar, lowered and aligned with a set of new RE11s. I also added window tint and a proper Blaupunkt Toronto BT stereo with amp and speakers. The car runs very strong and drives perfectly.

Thanks guys. Not really looking to sell, but if I did it would certainly bring Haggerty market value.

Hey I'm a stones throw from you! Are you inside or outside the loop?

what's wrong with today? Don't you like 32 degree cold rain?

Do you guys ever make it to the Coffee and Cars or LSRPCA get togethers?

I haven't been to either and get updates for both....Saturday mornings are reserved for golf and now our 4 month old daughter. Doug in the past, has invited me to CC.

I am in Meyerland. My Sister lives in Pin Oak Estates subdivision between Ave B and Newcastle off Bellaire.

A gtg sounds great!
