History We purchased this car for $1 and 2 tickets to the 2010 Daytona 500. Shipped from the southern California desert (just outside of Los Angeles) to Jacksonville, FL in Jan 2010.

As far as we can tell, this has been a California car (Ojai and Lancaster) for all of its previous life. The car has something north of 322,000 miles on the chassis according to Carfax and the PO's maintenance records. The engine was rebuilt 32k miles ago.

Car has been rock solid & reliable for 4+ years now.
Hard drive on the the Dragon's Tail
Exterior Paint job was done by Fleming Island Paint & Body Shop... Porsche stripes were added in March 2011 as there were 2 white 944s with Fuch wheels in the same area and that could never be tolerated . Rear valance was added in Dec 2010.

Interior Brown... everywhere! Needs some contrasting colors!

Engine / Under the Hood 1987 rebuilt 2.5 liter. Installed Summer 2009.

Suspension Entire Power Steering unit and high pressure hoses replaced July 2012.

Wheels and Tires 15x7 and 15x8 Fuchs
225/50/15 and 205/60/15 BF Goodrich Sport-G (lasted 23k miles before road noise and rough ride got to me).

Moved to Ecsta LX Platinum 225/60/15 on rear and 215/60/15 on the front in April 2013. MUCH quieter and smoother ride. Have not pushed them on the corners yet...
