Default Greg Brown cools down Supercedar






This started with my 86.5 heading to Carmel when my AC decides to quit blowing cold. I panic because the daughter will not let me roll the windows down (messes up the hair) and the wife says to keep the sunroof closed (sun does too much damage to her beautiful skin). So, I called my 928 guardian angels, Jim and Sue C. I asked them for Greg Brown's phone number. Fifteen minutes later, I received a call from Greg Brown and we discussed my car issues and he informed me that I would have to be nuts to drive 7 hours to his shop in LA. Perfect, I knew I was nuts, and I wanted my car to be taken care of by the doc. I left Santa Cruz at 1:00am and arrived to his shop at 6:30am. Greg had my car on the lift at 9:00am, proceeded to tear into my AC system, and replaced hoses, dryer, O rings, and freeze switch. He cleaned the temperature control head unit relay and changed the oil in the compressor. I was so impressed that he had all the parts needed on the shelf to assure my system would be working when I left. Being able to hang around for 7 hours at the shop and talk 928's with his wife, Mary, and his son, Kyle,

left me with an unforgettable and incredible experience. I would like to thank everyone in the 928 community that supports Greg Brown as you are the reason he was there to make this such a complete and enjoyable experience for me.

Bummer about the AC Thomas, but glad Greg got you to chill out. I haven't used GB's services yet, but I am appreciative that he and others like, Stan, Sean, Colin, etc., take the time to diagnose and give advice to the problems that we run into here on the List.

Was so funny to bring up Rennlist on my phone while I was looking at your car in the Corral and saw this thread, such a great story! Your car is incredible, that was quite a find for you.

Yes when everything is working correctly the 928 A/C is pretty cool !! literally. Porsche did extensive testing in the Sahara Desert after all The rude, crude, largely ineffective, added on A/C for the 911 was one issue they did not wish to repeat.

Thanks Stan, so I was not nuts to drive a extra 700 miles on a already 1400 mile trip?

Stan, I found out Greg is old school wood burner. I am sending him enough Super Cedars to get him hooked. Let's see if he can cool these down🔥
