We're glad to see more folks crossing the fence to the Open Road from The Site That Shall Not Be Named.

If you've just made the crossing you can check in here ...

... in this one-stop-shopping sticky thread.

Although not always clear, you can reach out to me directly if you need any assistance with logging in, using the site (since we use different software than other forums you might be used to - and yes there is a reason why!), suggestions, and even complaints.

Just reach out to me directly or fill out the form under "Contact Us" (all the way on the bottom of the screen) or this link:

https://openroad.site/pages/contact-us/

In any case, welcome all!!!

Sharks Circling Amelia Island label.png
Hey Sharks... Joel Roberts, aka JBRob007... from THE 928 BuckeyeLandsharks. Just joined and happy to be here. Still figuring out how to import an avatar, etc. In the news. The above pic is the 928 BLS Bourbon Whiskey 100 proof label for our club's limited edition bottling. We'll be bringing 30 bottles to Amelia Island in May and will be available for purchase to 928ers in attendance (if we don't drink it all on the way down). Price TBD, but it won't be expensive - all proceeds will go to the distiller (a 928 owner / club member) and our club coffers to fund our 928 BLS website.

In other news: I just bought a dust covered 82 Chiffon White w/ Rogerbox barn/garage find. Needs a leather dash & pod and driver seat recover, but the rest of the leather interior is in VERY good shape - needs a LOT of cleaning, scubbing, and TLC. It has a 928 Motorsports built 5.0 liter short block w/ 84 top end (cams/intake), complete top end refresh, forged pistons, steel sleeved cylinders, oil pan spacer, mini-starter, MMs, steering rack, 1/2 shafts, engine harness, green wire, race radiator, etc, etc... A TON of work done in 2016 including a working 928MS Stage I Super Charger kit with all the gauges. Took us a day to get the car running and a week to get it running well (after we removed the SC kit and replaced the fuel pump, new gas/techron, hotter plugs). We adjusted the transmission modulator (after removing the SC kit) so it starts right up, runs great and shifts smooth at well over 100 mph. The car was owned by a guy who doesn't know a screw driver from a wrench and it was sitting in a dusty garage since 2017 on 16" phone dials / Toyo 888 racing tires and a spare set of 15" phone dials leaning against the rear bumper. The BEST part is the tool box is complete including the yellow handled screw driver & plastic orange box of spare bulbs/fuses, tire pump, & aux belts from the factory / owners manuals. The plan it to CALL ROGER (help fund his summer vacation plans) by reverting back to stock, as close to stock as possible, without replacing the 5.0 liter (damn car MOVES even with a 3 speed), replace the enginebay fuel supply/return hoses, clean the interior & work on the seats while Mike does his magic with the all ORIGINAL (single stage) Chiffon White paint. I'll post pics as soon as I can get them off my phone. Sorry for the loooooooong intro, but I'm pretty stoked about the find. :jumper:

Oh yeah, is anybody in the market for a complete 928MS Stage I Super Charger kit for $2500 OBO? :evilgrin: If so, call me at (614) 886-three, five, one, one. See ya'all at Amelia Island!! Fins Up!!! :rockon:

Joel, would that SC work on a 10:1 euro engine? Is that the kit with the intercooler?

Just found this site and signed up! I'm getting a bit tired of the silliness over at that "other" forum. I've been a paid member, but I doubt I'll be renewing........

Heard about this forum on that bird site. Was on that other one for a year, posted twice, was getting a little too weird over there, and the whole thing with Roger, really, wtf. I joined here tonight.

Registered here back in August but my account was blocked for some reason but OK now.

Haven't been very active last year since I haven't been able to get home to Thailand for 15 months due to COVID.
Will go home on April 2 and after 16 days prison (Quarantine) I hope to see the 928 again (and the family :lol2: ).

Hope my bumpers I sent away to paint before I left for work in December 2019 is still OK :burnout:

Welcome “Bird Site” folks!

This thread might as well be a place to ask questions about site functionality if you run into trouble.

Nice to see you here my friend.
Many of the old gang is here now!
And you're for sure part of it. :bigok:

Bertrand,

You certainly got the 'old' part right - ha! Hope we can get together at Frenzy '21 this fall (or maybe the Carlisle Swap Meet if you are heading south for that). We've had one 80 degree F day, and Easter Sunday is supposed to be mid 70's, so May 1st should be a great day to get some warm southern sunshine!!

Cheers

Gary

Well, shit. How did Daniel get in?
[EDIT] Crap! He's been here all along?
OK, legit question: How do I add a pic to my signature? I could only get the avatar one to go when I joined.
[EDIT II] is there a way to shrink that photo V I just uploaded?

Sure. With a program before you upload it.

What 'device' are you using? iPhone? Windows PC?

If you can't do it let me know and I'll take care of it. But it's pretty easy using either desktop or online tools.

Yeah a lot of us were previous forum veterans for sure. I know I personally did 18 years at the other site.

But we're in this for the long haul so with our first year approaching here fast I look forward to celebrating many more!

Sewickley. It's that '85, black, euro S with the german plate that shows up to the PVGP.
Well if you aren't doing anything April 30th - May 1st, a few of us are leaving from the Sheetz lot on Rt 8 at 12;30 to caravan to Carlisle (formerly Hershey). We always have a blast, and the ride up is quite spirited. Hotel details on the renny thread
