You went through a lot with a blue 911. I have yet to go through 46 pages! I hope the new owner is part of pelican or will become one and not have this car 'disappear' which seems to happen a lot with well known cars that gets sold.

Best of luck with your new business venture in spite of 'lock down' and you got a great car as a trade. Enjoy it!! Plus thanks for sharing your build story.

Chris sorry to see her go. Was a great documentary on the build. By chance were you on I4 yesterday heading west bound between Plant City and Tampa about 5:30?

The new owner of the blue car can't be all bad if he also owns a stingray corvette.

My Porsche, another Mike Bruns engine, and my stingray.

Great build. I’ve seen the car many times. Glad it is staying in the Tampa Bay Area. I hope Mr. Stingray keeps driving the car and it doesn’t turn into a show/ garage queen.
Best of luck to you Chris.

Its a SICKNESS. Heading down the rabbit hole with the Spyder, man this car is something else, who would have thunk. Parts are inbound and will be done within a week or two. The usual GT4 parts/stuff but on a drop top Spyder rather than the GT4.

Dundon competition headers, IPD plenum/Gt3 throttle body and a custom tune. A few cosmetic items as well, GT4 front splitter, clear side markers, powder coating the wheels satin black with new OEM center caps. 10MM wheel spacers all the way around and fresh Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. Car has an Alpine touch screen inside and some speakers from PO. I plan on doing a hard wired in Valentine 1 radar and that should do it. I wish I had the LWB seats but I couldn't pass up the deal on this car. Maybe I can find a set down the road, but almost unobtainium in the matching red, I'm sure.

That Spyder is a modern classic. Unparalleled performance. Flat 6 power. Beautiful styling. Congrats on your score.

Are you starting a new thread?

Don't forget manual transmission! LOL. I did on Rennlist, I suppose I could here to. The car is a BEAST and surprisingly quick. The Dundon competition headers alone are supposed to really transform the car. Wil do a before and after Dyno.

SOLD THANKS

Also I have an extra Dynomax muffler (Wiliam Knight set up) that we used for the blue car build. If anybody wants it, new in box painted flat black w/engine temp paint. Very free flowing and dyno proved. Did well against a much more expensive GT3 cup muffler. Paid $125 plus ship. Will sell for $100 shipped.

Ad here
Free flowing Dynomax (new in box) Comparible to GT3 for way less $$
