My car is total "old school" every thing, Ruf 5-speed, Ruf P/C's, intercooler, turbo, exhaust, etc. Andial twin plug distributor with Bosch CDI, Carrillo rods and 935 heads that smoke on startup, it is a stinky, loud, old, dangerous, fast car, Just the way I like it.
I have all the old school stuff because it is Cheap, I paid $25K modifed, a stock 930 would sell for about twice that, around 50k at that time.

My next 'mod' will be a hydraulic clutch linkage, after 30 years/85,000 miles of a heavy clutch, the steel tube in the tub for the clutch cable is ruined with a grove worn in it and I do not want to buy another Ruf cable.
+1... my kind of car!
