Well, this wasn't my only project, but did work on it for a couple of hours each day for most of the summer (it left the shop in late September) It had just come back for the 1000 mile service when I snapped the pictures.

Hardest part of the rebuild was getting the K-27 turbo to line up with the support brackets and the exhaust

Yes, I got to drive it several times - we put the first 100 miles on any rebuild, before the customer gets it back.

The first beige 944 is mine (the one parked on the grass)

In the other picture, where you see the Orange 911 and the oil tank in the background, you can see my silver 944 in the garage (it was wrecked back in May)

Hmm nice car, *drool*..... what does your signature say?

It's not how fast a man drives, but how good you drive fast?

is that accurate?
