ROW is a blast to drive. RarlyL8 Hooligan exhaust and a bigger turbo make it incredible fun while the originals sit on the shelf. The 77 silver/lobster red is stock and would likely win a show. Just bolting on a Turbo and bolting on an exhaust makes a monumental difference.

Guessing the RoW is very well appointed as it has a sunroof which is not often seen on a RoW 930.

Classic! I'm a fan of guards red on porsche supercars or special cars speedster, 930, 959, Carrera 2.7, 3.0, GT.

It's just seems only certain cars deserve the right to be painted bright red. The 930 earned that right.

If you've ever seen guards red waxed to a very high degree you would know how special it looks in person. Actually has a glow or radiance not found in any other color. Quite beautiful as it looks impossibly deep with endless luster.

Brian & Rusty..

Yep the 930, the 951, the '66 mustang, the '66 bug, the 2003 GMC sierra, the Volvo, the whole shooting match.

Importing the 930 into Thailand would cost me a minimum of $30K, the 951 about $10K. One gets hit with the "Luxury" tax, import tax, customs tax, licensing tax, grease the palm of the inspector tax, bribe the customs agent tax, etc., etc. just not cost effective.

Plus where we plan to live, either of these cars would paint a huge "come rob me target" on my back, and I want to live a real low key life style there...kinda the whole point in moving there. Slow, quite, calm lifestyle is what we are after.

I commend you and your partner Mark! For most people that would begin and end at "Someday..."

What, it's not slow, quiet, and calm in the Seattle area megapolis? I'm retiring within the next 6 to 8 months, or longer if I chicken out for some stupid ass reason. Staying right here, no immediate need or reason for a change of venue though it's tempting. Each to his own; I wouldn't blame you for escaping that rat race. Had my fill of that crap living in Chicago-land.

Yeah, a 930 in Thailand....not a real safe thought.

I simply wouldn't live where I can't have and enjoy a 930.

In the grand scheme of things , one can have a ball with lots of different cars. To date I've owned 45 cars and 5 bikes. So for me it's kinda hard to get too worked up about one car or another.

Sure Thailand is a different venue, but the roads over there are beautifully paved and maintained. Almost any road outside of the cities, lead you off into the hills and mountains, winding through lush jungle and past picturesque rice paddies.

Did I mention there are lots of early Alfa's over there, euro spec hatchbacks and don't make me say real Skylines.....yeh should not be any fun at all :}

My Thai wife and I currently have a 3 bd, 2 bath town home in Bangkok, but I don't want to retire in the big ass city. So we are going to pick-up some acreage up north in the Chang Mai /Change Rai area. Heading back there later this year for another search and discover mission, it takes time to find just the right chunk of dirt to put roots down into. Probably won't buy anything this year though, just continuing the area overview.

In fact yes. However these are from a different garage and earlier this year.

In my defense I don't live in San Diego, Malibu or Miami. I live in Indianapolis.. and I work 60 to 70 hours a week.

I don't have that part of the dream yet.. If I did live in San Diego, Malibu or Miami you bet I'd go for a ocean blvd cruze come 7 at night in the ocean breeze..

One day!

Who says you can't get two birds with one stone. Any air cooled Porsche should accomplish this task.

Enjoyment and use are inversely proportional with market value. Once the value hits a point where you are afraid to drive the car it becomes driveway jewelry. I'm in the restoration business as well as the performance business and can appreciate both, but it kills me to see these fun cars sit once they cross the 6 figure mark. We have a precious few clients who actually drive and enjoy cars that have undergone full concourse restorations. That truly is having your cake and eating it too.

Yep, owning a car you can't drive would suck.

What's the point?
