Very cool! I’m assuming it’s an S2? Looking forward to seeing it cleaned up to see if the paint is as nice as it might be. Having owned a 968 coupe and now a 951, I’ve been getting the itch the own a cab, especially a 968, but a 944S2 would do just fine. Cheers!

Well......disaster averted. Wonder how long it would've lasted before the valves and pistons had a meet and greet. Car only has just over 150,000kms on it.






And in with the new.

Looking at the angle/deflection of the chain I'd say you need to replace that at some stage soon

Valve cover back and on and cylinders lubed with ATF. Plugs out and crank over to build oil pressure. Fresh fuel in the tank with a new pump and filter. Fuel pump jumpered to clean any old crap out the lines. With the new battery fitted, she fired right back into life.

Congrats glad to see it saved. 13years was a long time. I hope you did the oil cooler seals as well while your were in there doing the WP and belts. Sitting that long if you find the car over heats I would replace the radiator.
