I get melancholy every time Steve's orange beast rotates through as the picture of the day. It seems like yesterday, when I was eagerly reading details of the build and looking forward to new developments. Ahhh, the good old days, before this well planned and executed beauty ended up in pieces...

I raise a glass to your memory, as most 924's can only dream of reaching your heights. R.I.P. you mighty steed.

Cheers, Brian

Cheers!
I have seen and heard the thing run with my own eyes about a year or was it two before it got broken down.

Glad to hear the car was an organ donor, at least.

I think all the guts got transferred to another shell, the orange shell was parted as far as I remember.

I dug Steve up last year or a couple of years ago, gave him a surprise phone call. He left on a job offer and never looked back.

Steve left the UK. Family parted out the car. The new shell is now work in progress to become a full on GTP build in Hugo Boss livery. Its on its wheels with engine in place but not a runner yet.

The old orange shell still exists and is owned by the same guy building the above GTP. It lives with the ex Friesinger grey Carrera GTS and a CGT. So in good company.

Some engine parts are with Wes who is work in progress with his 931 Godzilla build.

So, in all not a total loss.
