The other shock tower is done... shown from a different angle.

Damn I can't wait to race this thing...

Nothing like bad *** fabricators.

Hey Tony,

Mike at IFC racing built me a very nicely done Firberglass roof skin, a roof scoop, F-40 style louvered fenders with a 3" gap at the back for air management, boxed rockers and is working on a fiberglass panel that will fit the stock taillights across the back of the car. He does awesome work and is very innovative. I was thinking you might need a F/G roof for your project. I can e mail you pictures of some of the stuff if you want. Let me know.

Is that shock tower all one piece or is it a disc welded to a cylinder then ground smooth? Looks AWESOME

The welds look great, too...I think I need another trip to the great beyond of N.LA to see when its done

Tony, this car is going to be amazing. You should enter the GRM Ultimate Track Car Challenge at VIR next year. Would be cool to see a 944-ish car finish up high or maybe even win. I think I'll be there, not sure if I'm running in it or not.

As much as I love spending money, I would hate to see the bill on this build. But then Igain, I kinda want to.

Looks great -- you've got a great shop you're working with, that's for sure!


Did I read you correctly that your old 951 is going for only $15k? If I may be so bold, what is "wrong" with it, or is it missing anything? Sounds like you've had a ton of work done to it and that it's quite the car.


Also, you're putting in two fuel cells? Holy cow -- I thought there were limitations on the number of gallons you could put into your car for a race, regardless of the size of your tank(s)? That's got to be like 50gal you'll have at your disposal, right?

52 gallons to be exact. the amount you can carry varies by the club/class . And. ...i don't need to even run the rear fuel cell unless needed. but is all setup and plug n play if i do.

as far as the red car.. ... the $15k is without the engine and headers.
