I just checked and there isn't an article on that car in that issue. Pity...

If you notice the front, there is some sort of flexible (rubbery type I guess) strip going across the bottom of the front.. Any idea who seels similar materials? (I believe it's a 1/4" thick rubber).
Ohh yeah , i thought you where selling , gave up racing , had a hummer on order!

you better finish that 914 first !

Mr. Wayne, I take it the Holbert kit is not commerically available anymore?
Is the rear spoiler actually apart of the rear fenders or the rear bodywork of the car? I really like how the spoiler is molded in to that section and is wider.
I love this spoiler as well and the wider rear flares which I believe are apart of a wide-body kit? --

Charlie ,
At the time Holbert as No America race director , had availble all the molds and parts for all Porsche 924 racers .
The rear spoiler is integrated into the body and it is the D Production spoiler ,
the rear fenders are from the 944 clubsport ( euro class only ) 2 inch wider than stock and the front end is all 924 gtr.

At the time i did not want the Lm rear fenders as it did not have the Look that i had wanted . Now i wished i had taken the whole gtr factory package . while still available today it is no longer the " factory Package "
