C2dwellerI took it to the Nordeschliefe for my 40th Birthday 5 years ago. Not just me, but my wife and two kids! 2.5k miles without a hitch. The made a really memorable holiday driving around France, Germany and Belgium. On the next outing, a track day at Silverstone, the clutch and flywheel disintegrated! Lucky, I guess.
964_Driver...light weighting (<60kg), exhaust..
mcgc0Bit of 964 background from myself; 12 years on and on my second C4 now after writing off the first one between Rouen and LeMans only 4 days back from a bare metal body resto! Put it into somebody's concrete garden wall.
964_DriverThe most weight was lost replacing the OEM seats with RS replicas. Next, as you suggest, was the primary muffler to cup.
James Ball:( I remember seeing your car when it was delivered to the garage that worked on it. A shocking story. So glad it had a happy ending.
James BallI’ve become a bit too precious about it to track recently but I’m very keen to follow some of your example by doing some European road trips in it, perhaps with the original seats out back in first as I really don’t fit properly on PPs. Sadly the Mrs isnt that keen on it so road trips might have to be a “lads” thing. Even more sadly, my 15 and 13 year old sons have recently stopped wanting to post themselves in to the back of it (past the buckets!) so it isn‘t filling family transport duties anymore. But they do still like passengering up front so all isn’t lost. I fluctuate between thinking “she’s a keeper” and “wouldn’t it be nice to make a tidy profit on it and try something more modern” but I can’t bring myself to part with the old girl.
mcgc0 RPM? Ollie helped massively. Chassis was twisted by few mm's forcing the rear screen to lift out the aperture - killer blow. At the time I was told that if to straighten whole car then looking at £20-30k to do properly. Today would have been worth doing! Within 3 hours of posting up the engine and gearbox for sale I had covered my insurance buy-back.
vitesseI have a list I can send to anyone interested -cost 10 yrs or so ago circa £100-will part with them for £ 40 inc postage.
daviespajI have considered rebuilding the engine myself (done a few 'normal engines' in the past) but will probably send to specialist. Bodywork and paint will also be done by specialist. The rest I plan to tackle myself. Hopefully taking early retirement next year so more time should be available?
