Whoa!!!!

Didn't any of you notice the ejector seat button in the center console!!!!

In a non-sunroof car no less........someone didn't think that all the way through.

Yes, normally you wouldn't see this option on a non-sunroof. Interesting.

Looks to be the original radio and the surround looks to be in great shape...nice!

Very nice and welcome to the tank. I am fully with you - those BBS's are so period, and so dated. Yes it's a good wheel, but they look about as good on our cars in this day and age as side strakes do. Phone dials, or Cup1 wheels, or turbo twists all work well on the early cars. Hold off and spring for a custom set of 18" phone dials from Jim at 928 Classics.

Yep, ejector seat works well but makes a bit of a mess of the headliner every time.
Thanks Roger, us Lords have to travel in style ;-)

Thanks guys - FLYNT, your brown 928 looks beautiful! Good luck with the sale if not already snapped up - a real collector's car.

Fantastic looking car!

I have a set of 944 16" phone dials, which look much better on the car than the stock 928 wheels.

There's always different ways to do a particular job.

The trick, in life, is to know which of those ways are stupid....

A little late , but welcome. Lovely car...and yes, the phone dials are the best! 16" were standard on manuals, 15" on the autos.

Please be sure to post your adventures...many of the early car fans here!

Gotta love the smooth pure lines of the 78/9. Nice example.

I hope you will consider posting a picture of the two iconic GT cars side-by-side, the 1800S and the 928.
