Yeah, it has a body kit on it from the 80's. Not my favorite look but its a legit folger kit from germany. the price was right considering the parts, I actually paid less for the whole car than the engine alone probably cost. Its a documented 20k 964 twin plug motor with a set of mild cams and tune on custom ecu flash. Has the 930 turbo brakes all around, full bilstein suspension with upgrade torsion and sway bars. The crown jewel for me though is the wheels, kinesis 3-piece K27's. No spacers here! The disgusting part is I bought it to be a parts car, hehe.

75'

custom color, graphite grey, really really like it. It's essentially been fully rebuilt, I beggy daddy to buy it for me when I was 16. It was my first car, and didn't drive it until I was 18 and already graduated. Car was beat to ****. It was sitting on the side of the road rotting with a FOR SALE sign that said 2k.. hahah dad got it, and I got to work right away. Had the ugly sheep skin sheets, all the doors were dented to ****, engine was seized, sunroof was damaged, and there was rust all over the body (non on the chassis, lucky me). Fixed everything, and pulled the engine (took me a glorious 30 minutes... my first engine pull hahaha 3 ******* bolts) took it apart trying to rebuild it.... had no idea wtf I was doing. Gave it to a friend who rebuilds porsche motors at Pescora Motorsports and learned a bit while I was there. Great car... I was tempted to get a turbo for it... but I love it too much to drive.. yeah, I'm a ------ car owner like that.

here's the engine bay (ignore the holes in the intake box...... that got very quickly replaced)
I'm family friends with Laurent Aeillo who won the 1998 Le Mans in the fantastic Porsche 911 GT1, and he signed my engine bay.


Means Cat in berber... I have an asphyxiation on cats. I believe I'm on the proper forum


Fully restored the interior myself.. did all the stitching with my dad, redyed the interior, got new seats from the junkyard, reupholstered all the ****. She's beautiful...
talk about getting laid in college

I spent less than 3k total in my car. Including paint, rebuild, trans, all that.
I was much more motivated in highschool to penny pinch than I am now.. =\


wish I could pick up the habit again

my bewilderment sources from the fact that you have Porsches to work on and drive yet you're goofing around with Escort GTs and Mazda Proteges.

914 WITH SURBARUUUU POST HASTE!

Working on it! lol. The last two houses we perused have fallen through. The only real reason I went after the mazdas is the weather. When I moved from the eastside of our state, WA (eastside>westside when it comes to car weather), I needed something I could drive all year, go over snow covered mountain passes in. A 911 with 315's on the rear isn't going to cut it.

True story. You are forgiven, mostly.

Either way, the Mazdas look like fun. I worked at a dealership in Utah and some guy came and traded in a pretty clean '88 323 GTX. We couldn't believe it. Once we got the e-brake to stop sticking on, the thing was pretty fun. Finally some guy flew out from like 800 miles away and drove it home.

that would have been a fun winter ride, but it's kindof a shame to turn a rare car into a winter beater. what to do...

It currently is pretty beaten but when I am finished it will be far from a beater. I am actually doing some long over due maintenance on it right now including; pulling everything out of the engine bay. cleaning it all up. Replacing needed parts. I am also hoarding as many rare parts as I can.

The end goal is to have a built bp motor trying to max out my hx-35 and putting power to all four wheels via an all-trac transmission. I would say parts wise I am near 50% of what I need but project wise I am just starting.

The built motor and turbo bits are actually why I am here lol. So far I have managed to collect an extremely low mileage block and crank. M-tuned rods and arp hardware, all-trac adapter plates, bp4w head, cusco camber plates, an extra set of pro4wd spindles(rare!), GTAe front bumper (RARER!) and a ton of other ****. basically the wife hates me.

I told her I am still in it all, including the porsches, for less than a used evo. She told me at least the evo would have A/C and run lol.
