https://rennlist.com/forums/members/37746-sailmed.html

Where did sailmed, aka firemed before changing his screen name, ever end-up?

He was noted for his bottom feeder saves down in Florida. Reference to Dr. Kim made me remember the guy, I think they were freinds.

Sailmed played the role of enforcer, collecting a title or parts or both in the epic rennlist 928 story of Whitefox,

(Whitefox was the random florida kid who started as a 928 diy prodigy --- who reportedly died as a bankrobber in a shootout).

There were some crazy things happening in this forum 10 years ago....



Sailmed might have liquidated all the 928 stuff, bought a boat and become a cruiser... ? Just curious. He added a lot of color and technical content back then on a daily basis. Years ago he asked me to pick him up at the Richmond airport and shuttle him to a nearby Virginia car which we worked on together for a couple hours ... then he jumped in it and drove back to Florida...

Dan Bise is still rolling in SoCal, but has moved on to different cars since his 928 days. IIRC he's had a few other Porsches and Audis since his 928. We e-mail once in a while about car events and happenings.

yep he kept threatening to show up at Sean's house... that would have been interesting....to say the least. Ironically some guy on Facebook is trying to sell the old side pipe car without the side pipes and went poof when I asked if the car came from south Texas and had holes in the frame rails and floor from mounting side pipes.

jerrybak. After he lost his 928, did he ever get another one? His red one was my car's identical twin practically.

He did not.
Has a 997 now.
When last I spoke to him, his son had trashed the tranny... like the shop brought the bits of synchros out it bucket to show him.

I think we are talking about the same guy, he went by Jerrybek, but not a member any more so I couldnĺt find any of his old posts.

Talking about me?
928 is still with me despite monthly assaults from my significant other to sell the car. Drove her this past summer with my son a couple of times but when she gets hot coming to a stop she cant keep idle so I have to left foot brake and manage the throttle... not ideal and takes the fun out of it.
Its been a very very long time and thankfully Imre stepped up and shorted my engine woes from the shoddy work nightmare that I endured in the hands of a local shop. So the car has been sitting for a long time really and not driven but this year I want to address the interior issues, change up the shocks, tires and fix the idle issue so I can finally enjoy the car. At least that is the plan!
I have not been much on Rennlist, life has happened coupled with financial issues due to the loss of my job in the past, just could not bear to read stories about cars getting driven and restored with me been unable to do much of anything really...
So I just hope this year things will go back to normal and I'll be able to get back in the thick of things...
