Flojo....what I am thinking is the roads are maybe less forgiving where I am. A bump in the road and the car moved left or right and you had better be ready. I call it "kick back".

Had to be an angle issue between the steering rack and the front wheel hubs. The kit corrected this for me.

Too much Floji! The bottom of the skate board is a unique and unusual touch. Love it.
Would rather have the car of course. What is the yellow numbers and letters up on the windshield?

Hallo Flojo,
Guten Morgen here in Georgia. Very nice Porsche! In page 13 Mike Sampsel mentioned how your Porsche would look with black caps and the center matching your yellow color (a yellow spade carefully painted in the Porsche crest). Have you tried that? You could get opinions (likes or dislikes)...miss Germany and the autobahn (2tours there); don't miss the "stau"

Thank you guys!
I like it as well that pictures of the car turn out well.
Though what one does not see is how bruised and battered it actually is.
Well, some other bearded guy once said that dirt (in my case, paintchips and dings) don't slow you down, right ;-)

Flojo, is the yellow spade up by the mirror fairly new?
I do not recall seeing it before, it’s a nice addition to your color guard!

Just read the article in the link! Wunderbar!

The clock is original to the car, built Nov.78
I just added HEUER to the dial when it was refurbished.
should have deleted VDO though, duh...

Recently pulled the spring plates and ditched the OEM bushings from 2013.
Chose a set of black Powerflex because I couldn't get the RSR-set to fit (another Story).





Level at +80kg (Driver)... nice.


And the obligatory alignment done


Rocker Panels back on. Ready!
