Many people don't know you have that option, the insurance company normally doesn't offer it up.

I have seen a few stories of people that were successful with flood cars. The two examples I can think of though were much newer and the water did not get much above the floor board.

Technically speaking you aren’t buying it back, you are just not “selling” it to your insurance company. In order for an insurance company to take possession of your car you have to agree to the settlement offer and sign the vehicle over. You can always keep the car if you want to forfeit the “salvage value”.

The one time I helped someone keep their car, you do sign it over, they then run it through the DMV and issue you a salvage title. At least that's how they do it in GA.

A friend bought it and the car is going to Europe. It will be stripped down to the bare chassis and rebuilt.

I wish your friend luck. Sold for around $50k? Transport + resto costs+ surprises --all with a salvage title? Seems like a lot of work for a branded title car.

I think once it makes it to a lot of Europe the salvage/branded part goes away.

I have no idea what he paid for it. I know when he is finished with it the car will be primo

Personally the first gen turbo does nothing for me, unless it is a 934

A branded US title doesn't mean much in Europe. It's still a 77 930 no matter what the paperwork says.

I was guessing that was the case with the title. Brave man to take on a flood car.

Can't afford or find a real 934, especially the few street ones made? Probably why so many were modded for street or track to get similar performance from a first gen when some became aware of the 934 capabilities and could get their stocker to perform better. I moved from CA before this, so I missed out. Some here not even born yet. Probably a reason I really like the nicely done Modded ones that were built then.

I have owned and race a bunch of factory 934 & 934.5's . Though by the time I got them they had all been converted to Kremer K 3's or A.I.R. M16's with twin turbo mfi motors

The 76 77 turbo was a non intercooled 3 liter with 911S brakes. Beautiful car for sure but a 78 is a much better car. Until this centuries collector craze you could buy them for much less than a 78

Yep, bought a couple nice modded street 77 930's 15- 20 years ago and still have them. Prefer to Keep & drive them vs the stockers ( although I still have a stock 77 just because it's a rare color). I've been a exclusive 930 dealer over that time so I to have had many 930s but never had a Porsche factory 934 or 935. Still have a 935 street kremer I've had for about 10 years and a CA vintage modded 79 SC chassis 3.4 liter twin turbo with later 935 suspension, last raced 1994. Should get it on track again this year. It should drive similar & have similar power of a 934. So I missed some of the action as I already had moved from CA mid 1960s so getting more involved with what I missed out on now.
