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

Saving your 928 for the next owner is like saving your girlfriend for her next boyfriend... it's INSANE! Drive them both hard and they'll love you for it... especially the car
