It's funny how many cars would benefit from a simple shock and strut replacement. Patrick that car looks so HOT!! The stance is perfect!

Now just imagine the difference if you were to get rid of all those tired old rubber suspension pivot points, upgraded the sways, upgraded the tires & wheels, and...ooops...here I go suggesting that you start heading down that slippery slope.

Honestly this is one of the major reasons I put it off for so long. I went down the slippery slope of pricing out strut inserts, rear shocks, torsion bars, bushing sets, sway bars etc. and before I knew it I was looking at almost $4k just in parts. One of my personality traits that I love/hate is I'm typically an "all-in" kind of guy. With this particular decision, I'm glad I waited it out. I ended up getting out for well under half of that with fresh components that are more than suitable for street use and an awesome old-school "string" alignment. I absolutely love how the car handles now with my lowly Bilstein Sport upgrade on rubber bushings... good enough for me!

Finally got the 930 out of winter storage at my old house and over to my new house.

So happy I can get her out on the road again after a rough winter.

Thanks! Just bought it in December.
Here is a view from the lake and a view from inside looking toward the lake.

That's the same thing every client says after we replace the struts/shocks on his Porsche! "Soooo much better! Why did I put this off so long?"

Your Turbo looks amazing.

Thanks guys!

The garage is only a 1 car garage. Lake houses around here rarely have the acreage to put up a multi-car garage. It's a trade off. But we all know which car gets that spot!

Beautiful day in the Desert, Lake Mead National park. Ten minutes later some dirt bag, in a Jeep, turns left in front of me and I flat spot all four tires. Expensive Sunday Drive. The car is an idiot magnet.

Happy Motoring🙈🙈🙈

2 truly timeless classic beauties there. You could not know anything or care anything about cars and INSTANTLY know you’ve stumbled on to something quite special.
