When that pic was taken did you know for sure it was #1?

Default Early gas cap comparison

Was surprised to find the #1 car has a non-locking stainless steel gas cap.
Here's a pic with another early cap on the right, with the non-locking one on the left.

Didn't know one of these existed!

Default New home for the Junkyard Dog...

Very happy to get #1 under better cover and protection.

Great value ($200) for this 20'x10' canopy from Costco.

Good idea.

I like the contrast between the two white cars.

Man, as a new 928 owner, I am amazed. Mine is in horrible condition, (1978 # 30), but following these threads is uplifting and positive encouragement to push onward!

thanks for sharing.

Ron

Well, I don't know too much about it really, other than it was parked for a fuel problem in 1994....was told it would run and then "vapor lock". PO said his sons tried to fix it, but failed. Just been rotting away under a tree ever since. I have had it a couple of months now...motor will turn by breaker bar on crank, but have yet to get it to turn with the key. Been fixing rusty wire connections, and replacing vacuum lines, 14-pin, etc. working on fuel lines this weekend. Gas tank was in the hatch, so I cleaned it, the sender, and de-rusted and repainted the tank bracket. (1) fuel pump is bad. I bought all new stuff, and am in the process of re-assembling.

Vin# 9288200030

Sorry, real newb here..what is OB?

I have tried to upload pics, and it keeps saying upload fail...perhaps I have not posted enough to earn that privilege? Some boards do that...

Thanks!

OB = Old Bugger

Not sure when the cutoff is, though. Maybe all the 4.5s?

We're in the same boat, except mine is like #459. Hardly rare, but OB, and awesome under all the scratches.
