That is a hell of an effort in only 3 months. Look forward to seeing this car at PVGP!

Is the paint flat or is that just the pic? I don't mean that in any bad way at all .

You wouldn't be interested in selling the radio, would ya?

Hey, they say it never hurts to ask...lol.

But, seriously...the car looks great and you've done a very impressive job so far. Can't believe #1 & #6 will be together in two short weeks. This is turning into an epic 928 event, just glad we'll be there to witness the reunion.

Brian.

That is really, really cool. Actually quite like the primed "body in white" look! Did the owner from 1983-2011 know what he/she had?

You certainly own a master piece of the 928 history

Please take your time to discover the car. It seems that you already know much of its history, thanks to Jim.

And now; something to read and think about it:

Congratulations.

I wish I could make the Pittsburgh show to see it. That car has some serious mojo. Is it ok that I feel some source of pride that my car was originally a cosmetic duplicate ( color wise) sans the passenger mirror?

Funny, although most folks desire unusual/unique colors...which is awesome...me, personally...my eye and heart is drawn to the "In the beginning" colors.

Wish you could make the event with your car.

Very nice , your the next caretaker,
seems the more owners a 928 has the better the service results are.

Every new owner jumps in with cash and enthusiasm,
some are more successful than others,
good luck with your machine
