This forum has a different feel some of the forums I've been on. It seems like there are a lot of people that come and go but only a few familiar faces. Most of the regulars only post once every few d ...

The winter has been cold and is finally starting to break. The 924S was dreaming of hot pavement in my unheated garage all winter. I haven't done much due to the cold but I completed a few projects. I ...

It looks like my photos disappeared... all the edits are because I was fixing broken links.

I worked on it a bit over the weekend. Updates to come soon.

Until then, take a look at this battery b ...

I tried fitting the hatch carpet from my 1980 924 into my 1987 924S to see if it would fit before I bought an early carpet set.

The hatch carpet is close, but not the same. The main issue is the le ...

It's my understanding that you shouldn't push the trip reset button while the car is moving as it will strip out the odometer gear. Replacement odometer gears are available on ebay if it bothers you e ...

For what it's worth, I topped out at 32 mpg when I drove from NY to Iowa. Pretty much that entire drive was at freeway speeds.

I've soldered a few without problems. The wire is stainless and that might be why people say not to? 60/40 nickel solder seems to work well. I hate using crimp connectors anywhere that may see water. ...

If it were my money, I would wait for a better example to come up for sale. You're going to spend more than it's worth just to get it on par to daily drive or even just to be safe when you race. With ...
