That's way cool. What I love about your car is that it actually raced....to my knowledge mine never did, or at least it appears not to have based on the condition of some of the stuff. That motor will have more than enough juice to get you going. I think the motor Carl is building for me will have similar horsepower.

Get going on it so we can race! My deadline is February!!!

The name should be a derivative of Devore. Maybe Devourer?

So I thought of the car's attributes:

- Stocky
- Ultra Wide
- Originally petrolblau metallic, but the respray by some PO came out green
- Intimidating, in a kind of **** way

Then it hit me, and the old girl now has a name that matches her personality and evokes a little chuckle. Meet "The Tank"


I thought it was already called the Highwayman... Also, Mark Kibort, here in the Bay Area raced the "Holbert" car for several years, so there is a precedent.

I haven't named my "race" car either. There already has been "The White Car" from DEVEK, and Mark Anderson's "White Zombie", and Carl's white "Bonneville/Pike's Peak" 928, so any other white 928 is just another white 928...

George,

Bulldust!

Your 928 is special enough and then some- how about "the Jorginator"

Trump that one!

Our cars' name is the "GWS" for the "Great White Shark"

It is towed to and from races by "Moby" the white whale...

I love the name Adam. Definitely fits. (Although the Devourer is pretty good too.)

Some serious drool worthy cars all you racers have. Green with envy here. :-)

Default Free to a good home

So the old fuel cell was out a few days ago, and now I took the aluminum can out. At first, I wanted to have a new bladder made to fit the old can, because I figured the can was already there, so....

There were two problems with this:

1. A new bladder to fit this can was over $1800 - to put this into perspective, Fuel Safe sells a new fuel cell for around $800 plus options. Both would have the same FIA certification.

2. I really questioned the need for such a huge cell - 27 gallons. For what I want to do, that is really excessive. I'm running some hot laps, not the 24 hours of Le Mans.

Also, I didn't like how tall the old tank was - stuck up about 6-8" taller than the rear deck, which means I would have been actually carrying fuel HIGHER than the stock car. Weight up high = no good.

So in any case, out it came, and I am now offering the old cell and can for FREE - you pay actual shipping cost. I figure it will run about $100 to ship it because of size, but I don't know for sure.

The fuel cell looks to be in good shape, but the foam inside feels brittle. The can is perfect. Pics taken to show how it mounts in the car.

No one wants it, it goes in the trash.

Clearly doesn't make sense to keep the old one. Move on and don't look back.

Default Devore car

So I drove my 9 to work the other day and one of my new co-workers says" I havent seen a 928 for along time,do you know a guy named Bob Devore?" Apparently he used to date Bobs daughter back in high school.
