Post a picture of your 964.

Hi Everyone,
 
As the 964 is the best 911 of them all and we are all here as we all own/owned/look to own/lust after a 964, let's get some pictures of our cars up. It may be on your drive, in your garage, up on a ramp or on a road trip, a picture and a story would be a great way to get this forum kicking and get us talking! 
 
So here we go, this is my 1991 964 C2. Bought in a pretty sorry state but lots of time and effort later, looking much nicer.
 

 

 
Let's see yours!

Great looking examples, I have a set of Cups, I really need to get some tyres on them and try them out :)
 
Always great to see a 964 on track, would love to know the spec!

Hi Mark
I have seen your gorgeous red 964 being improved over time on another platform. Well done to you, bringing that sad looking car back to its best. I had a red beautiful 964 about 9 years ago, I still have counselling over the decision to sell it!! I swapped it for my 997 C2S which is a really fantastic car, but I found that I missed something special from the old car. I managed to track down a tired example which I am trying very slowly to restore. So far a few panels off and engine / gearbox removed. Hopefully after my current building restoration project 2021 will be far more productive for the 964 project?
I see you are now the 964 Register Secretary, good luck with the role and will try to support the register where I can.

Spec is an easy thing to explain in this case. It´s a proper Cup car, no. 50 of the first badge of fifty Carrera Cup cars made in 1990. Less camber makes street legal tyres work and tracks like the Nordschleife are less "white knuckle" stuff. Once the original brakes were shot I put on vented big reds, but that´s basically it. (I kept the original parts, of course.) She´s with with me for more than 28 years now, still a great car.

Hello mate, thank you! Sometimes needs must and the grass looks greener! At least you are back in (under) one! I love a project, looks like you have your hands full. How do you rate the lift? I was debating one of those, as it goes nice and high or those Quick Jack, don't go near as high but may do the job. 
Would love to see updates as you go along. 
 
I am now, was kindly put forward for the job, so I thought let's see what I can do. I am hoping to get some meets going and get our 964's together! Thanks for the support :)

I bet that has some history behind it, do you still get out and use it much? 28 years is some time, wow! Great to see and hear that you have kept it for so long and put it to good use.

Some history behind it - yes, I think so, PM sent. Not much use in the recent years, but ready to rumble anytime.
 
Your car looks cool, reminds me of my first 964 cab, also an early one with the old mirrors, no airbag, 16 inch wheels and indischrot.
 
Keep up the good work on the forum!

Hi Mark, the lift is an absolute dream. Although I have probably spent more time under the other cars than my 964 since purchasing the lift! I have since recessed the lift into the floor now. When on top of the floor you struggled to get a low car over it unless you put planks down first to raise the car slightly. I will try and keep you posted on my slow journey. I purchased a set of B16's, polybushes and some adjustable tops so will be fitting them first, picture showing a quick mock up.
Regards Peter

Thanks Hacki, the story of you and your car is an eye opener, a credit to have you here. Hopefully we can do something to share more on your car! 
 
They look great Peter, I need to change my coilovers at some point, they are H&R's but they are extremely stiff with no adjustment, even with my balloon tyres, the ride isn't as nice as some others I have been out in, the Bili's will be amazing! Where are the top mounts from?

Kinda wish I'd gone the B16 route instead of the B6's - but then the miles I do probably didn't justify it at the time. However, with Chris Franklin at CoG the set up is as good as it's likely to ever get.
 
Have had the new scissor lift for 3 weeks now - should have got it years ago. The C4 now in the air having gone through replacing the longitudinal diff lock piston seals. Alas to no avail. The cylinder was damaged some point in the past and at @ 2500psi the retaining circlip was never going to hold the internals in I guess. Expensive new diff lock ordered and will fit that. Plenty of other work done and tidy up jobs while all trays are off etc..

Hi Mark, I was fortunate to take advantage of a good exchange rate a few years back and purchased my B16's from Carnewal in Begium (today €2250 inc shipping) www.carnewal.com . The top mounts are from a company called Compbrake Motorsport, £204 for the front and £144 for the rear www.compbrake.com

I bought them from a company in Germany called Hahn GFK. http://www.hahn-gfk.de/. website has a few photos of seats in various colours. The Seat back moulds were taken from 964RS originals. Would say that are quite snug being slightly narrower than Recaro. But beautifully made though.

Velvet red, that's a colour you rarely see, looking beautiful!
 
Roger, your 964 has to be my dream spec, I love silver Porsches, I did toy with the idea of painting mine silver so it matches my other cars. Love it!

The exterior silver is timeless, but the Colbalt blue interior is one of those Porsche only combinations, which I really like.
Just fitted an RS rear bumber centre section and swapped out my front fogs for FVD brake cooling ducts. Pretty pleased with the result.
 
PS: first name is Graham (confusing with a family name like Rogers) :)
PPS: how do you add the PCGB watermark to the photos?

 If I could have found a silver at the time I was looking I would have jumped at it.
 
Thanks Mark. The velvet red was too cheap to pass up and I already had all the best parts I needed from my other donor 964 that I wrote off a couple months previous. Added the rear grille last year, although fiddly it got the look I wanted.

Hi Graham ;)
 
Really like the blue too, was never a fan but since owning a Boxster in a similar colour combo, I really like it, it certainly make a change from black and is not in your face.  I think you have created my perfect 964!
 
Use the upload option via the forum for the PCGB watermark.

Looks good, I saw a 964 on the rennlist forum where he had a similar grill but lost the centre section of the centre light panel, well, he cut it out along with the panel behind.. Not sure if that would help cooling but I think this car was a full on lightweight project so holes were everywhere!
