That may be top down, but that looks cold still! I'm even closer than Seattle, that picture was taken outside of Bellingham.

+5C (41F) that day... not too bad but we were all dressed for it. No snow is the main ingredient... I would drive top-down below zero as long as the roads were clean and dry.

Here is my 79sc...Unfortunately I sold it a few years ago when we started a family. Great memories! Now I have a 2003 Targa.

Beautiful car! Can you elaborate on your brake setup. calipers, adapters, rotor size? Looks like more than a 964 or 944 Turbo size caliper up front and curious how you get them to fit under those wheels.
Thanks!
Bill

Bill,

993/965 calipers front & rear under 7"x951 and 8"x911 Fuchs with turbo servo.

Great set-up for the SC.

Hi will.
So the car is a 79SC... was found non-running, L side panel damage and purple with awful body kit...

I got it in 2015 and full Resto in original Minerva blue with engine, gearbox etc etc rebuilt/restored. I had the 3.0 in it for about 8mths and had a 3.6 from a 1990 964 waiting to be rebuilt also...

Fast forward to today... almost ready.
3.6 is in... 3.0 in storage
Should be back on the road within the next month.

I hope your car thanked you for ridding it of that terrible 944 Turbo-esque front end!

Looks amazing!

Thank you for sharing. Great work! The car looks awesome. The right combo of aggressive and subtle.
