This is a really good rebound. You outdid yourself.


The front is not too low. It's hardly low at all. It looks like it has too much tire, not enough caster, and probably an unnecessary wheel spacer (assuming there is no rub on the inside without the spacer). Figure out the width and offset on those front wheels.

Congratulations! She is a beauty. Did you post on your WTB that you wanted Cobalt specifically or did Rudy offer you his Cobalt?

Finally we will get some really great photos of the best color on a 964!

I get comments every time I drive mine, here in LA too, where aloof ignoring of your car (while eyeballing it sideways) is an art form. Even other 964 owners ask me if it is a factory color, in person the car pops, and so rare; you bought a beauty....and sport seats....having searched cobalt, next search might be "keeping linen seats clean".

So happy for you, I was sad to see what happened to your slate car, this is proof that everything happens for a reason. Enjoy.

(PS I had some rubbing up front too, depends on the tire, but there is a hard, sharp protruding 1/4 inch metal flap in the fender/bumper join. It ca be filed down and eliminated my rubbing)

Congratulations on a great purchase. I had seen your other car got hit but lost track of the outcome - well ultimately it was a great outcome. The wheels. The color. The mirrors. The brakes. The car. Very nice. Enjoy it - I know you will.

Wow. Congrats. That's a keeper. In other news Rudys PM box is 100% full.

I've been watching this unfold since your accident. You recovered nicely with a truly gorgeous 964. Well done!

I sold my 964 C4 to move into a 997 and I miss my 964 and all of its personality.

Congrats on the purchase and glad to see you in another 964! I spoke to Rudy about this car as well when I was on the hunt myself. Beautiful example.

Like others I wondered how long it would take you to get a replacement for your beautiful slate gray 964. Glad it worked out and a beautiful example in a great color. I'll look fwd to your updates as you make this new one yours.

Awesome!!!

When I said to keep walking one step at a time... I didn't think you were that fast of a walker. Welcome back to the world of happy 964 ownership.

Looking forward to the adventures.
