    Nice work. Looks like you owe that man a beer! PS Took my old classic truck for a run recently and it broke down when the MSD coil failed. Rang home for another and while I waited for it to arrive, there was a steady procession of people stopping and seeing if they could help. It was a...

    The italian racing Superformance

    I think Ron that here in NZ at least, the Porsche fraternity wouldn't be seen dead with a 944 or its variant. Too cheap for their liking me thinks - which means commoners like me could afford one. The Horror...!

    The italian racing Superformance

    Hi Paolo Nice photos. Did you manage to get any pics of the engine bay area? I haven't seen the chassis plate in the position behind the driver as shown in the photo above. Is that normal or has the owner moved it there? Regards Cam Auckland, NZ
