VanhireBoysHi All Thanks for your replies.. Good to see a few of the stalwarts are still about .. I think we are all in the same boat - we all have no time and that puts a dampener on good intentions !! Well I got a key cut from the door barrel and the lads in the shop made the profile of the boot the same as a gesture ! I threw caution to the wind and checked the levels and went for it. She fired up straight away but alas was on 3 cylinders. Checked around the leads and stuff no problems. I ran her again and pulled the leads in turn to find that it was #1. Im hoping that its not sommit like a headgasket.... ! There was a local show here in Co.Galway that I had intended to go to but no point if the car isn't running good. And now the lists Necessary Get her running properly - Belts and waterpump - Replace the oil and filter - New air filter - New tyres - Drain and flush the cooling system - replace the brake fluid - new brake discs - full body exam for corrosion - full pipework exam for perishes and splits and replace as necessary - NCT and Tax Nice to do New mats .. !! Its funny how the brain works - Your memory will fade but just walking up to the old girl and taking the cover off the memories came flooding back.. Silverstone in 2008 where my avatar was taken with Johns Beaky and Pauls first red 944. The PCGB tour in 2009 of Region 27 . Cirencester in 2011 and the 944 crew all getting well lubricated in the students bar at the Agricultural College. These are only snippets of all the happy times in the car For this now I need a deadline - http://www.rpm-motorsport.com/tours/donegal.php There is a few local shows as well What a terrible video...!!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJo-1lvTv5I&t=4s I have a bit of work ahead and as you all say it will be strange driving her again !! bring it on I say !!
944TurboWith these resurfacing cars and a 40 year anniversary of production pending, maybe we should start planning an outing for 2022? A few of us went to Germany for the 20 years, and it might encourage a few more out!Tony
Peter EmpsonBest of luck!I'm in a similar situation, trying to get mine back on the road after many years, but hopefully another couple of months and it will be out and about again - it's going to feel really weird driving it again.

Maybe if we went again I would be allowed on the Factory Tour this time as my pesky kids are all grown up now and don't require me sitting in Reception looking after them
