Help Mr. Wizard!







Many other details are correct: Looks like the Recaro C seats, clear glass, red paint, no passenger mirror, correct license plate (with 73 visible), even the hood appears to have the dent from Ferry's butt on it!

Interesting!
Mr wizard is brining turkey at the moment... but I have some theories to consider: The plates match S DA ?? 75. The plate would have been bolted to the car after the show, I don't see them sending a red/white 928 to Geneva after it had the hood sat on and beat around in the snow by elf-uniformed ski maidens. There was at least two sets of seats in the car that we know of... production type , at Geneva, then the Buick grand national shaped recaros that remain in it today. The ski maiden pic clearly shows white headliner quarter panels , c pillars...I think thats the Geneva car. For it not to be there would have to be two red / white cars with S DA ?? 75...not likely. The next obvious ghost to chase? Another set of seats between Geneva and the Grand National recaros... or maybe covers to protect those show car white/back white pasha seats.

I guess I need to call the current owner, he'll know.

Is that taken from your white or black car?

Well, this just goes on to show again how the factory usually just picked whatever was already available in the parts bin to make their special models.
It's funny though how poorly-integrated the early muffler looks below a heatshield designed for the later, larger ones.

Default overhead door

@ Hacker-Pschorr a

A guru level garage door installer should be able to run your door track much closer to the ceiling.

They'll probably need to put in a different radius where the track curves from vertical to horizontal.


If you also have them install a wall mounted opener, you'll have much more room for the car, without as much fear of raising that lift right into the track.

As an added bonus, they are DC and run very quietly. Plus, mine came with a deadbolt that snaps into place once the door is down, helping prevent someone from prying the door open.
