I had a wheel , steering alignment in the 924S today. Much needed. Car feels definitely better know. Provided it is not raining tomorrow will take the 924S for a full clean/polish inside and out inc the engine bay ( dry though as I am worried for a wet engine clean). Been driving the 924S all day today since 0700 , cold but dry weather thank god . Really enjoyed it

as always

I hope to get on with the 5 lug conversion on the 924 this weekend.

I was just looking for an older picture of the intake of the red 924 and stumbled over these pictures....my god that car looked amazing. I fall in love with it every time i see pictures of it...as i did every day i looked at it.

I seriously wish I got a ride with you when you were in UK. Very disappointed we didn't swap a seat!!

Drive and enjoy the 924S ( hopefully it will carry on starting... :hope: ) and wash /polish the car , detail engine

Need to start working on the infamous torque tube refurb , have all the parts needed, learned by hard now the instructions and have a spare, repainted torque tube to play with. If I manage to stay away from Greek souvlakia and wine I will start this
