As much as this pains me, my baby, MY 1984 Hellbronze Metallic 928S2 Euro (310 hp) 4 speed automatic with shifter kick down switch will be FOR SALE soon… Thought I’d let Rennlist members have first crack before I list her on Cars & Bids.

She’s a fully sorted, “turn key & go”, shark that was reassembled / rebuilt & serviced by the 928 Buckeyelandsharks club members in 2015-16 after a full window / interior out repaint. She's a one off custom 928 that had $14K in new parts (doors / hatch seals, H4 lights, gaskets, steering wheel, GB fuel hoses, GB injector kit, Recovered dash, pod & consold, etc) awaiting reassembly. She has more upgrades than I can list or remember. The list of work / parts is extensive and the build book with all of my additional parts receipts comes with the car. The total parts costs, body & paint work, and hundreds of hours of labor were never tallied… but the costs WELL exceed the asking price by a LOT!!!

This is a custom built 928 that is instantly recognizable in the 928 community (Frenzy / Amelia Island). The custom dash, pod, center console & glove box cover stitching is unmatched. The black leather front seats are manual & super comfortable while the rear seats were deleted with the stereo installation. The custom SS exhaust is slightly louder than most (especially above 4,000 RPMs) as is the Brad Smith custom built stereo system (WAY louder than most). She is a factory sunroof delete model with custom shaved body panels to show off the car’s lines (DELETED rocker panel rough strips, flag mirrors, side markers, rub strips, head light washers, radio antenna, rear wiper & duckbill spoiler). The added GTS Aero mirrors & custom 80's rear wing bring it all together & she’s covered in a one off, close to Hellbronze Metallic paint (this color has more metal flake) that just POPS in direct sunlight. While the paint is no longer “perfect”, it's still VERY nice and the entire front of the car including bumper, hood, fenders, mirrors & rocker panels is covered in Expel (clear bra) protection package. She shows extremely well from all angles.

She is literally a custom one of one car - there is nothing else like her. People gawk everywhere I drive her and she’s an instant hit / trophy winner at large Car Shows. She has two sets of wheels - Stock manholes w/ new all season tires and Silver / Polished Aluminum RH 3-Part Cup Wheels with new Continental DSW on rear and Hankook Ventus on front. The RH wheels are not the correct offsets, but they’re GORGEOUS on this car! To say this shark is a “head turner” is a gross understatement.

She has 142K+ miles on the clock, but you’d never know it looking under the hood, or under the car, and she starts & runs like a sewing machine 😎. Most of the miles are highway (of course) from OH to FL, TN, PA, NY, NJ, VA, MD, DE, WV, KY, MI and IN... Everything works as it should and all services are up to date with a complete TB/Tensioner/Roller service prior to sale.

Dave Kindig called it a “Bitchin’ Ride” while Judging the 2019 Columbus Zoo Car Show (Top 20 Winner out of hundreds of contestants). She won Best of Class at the Red Brick Reunion all Porsche Car Show in Oxford, OH, and was a featured display at the 2021 RBR. Most recently she was featured in the September edition of PCA magazine Panorama (Shark Tank pages 86-90) while participating in 928 Rendevous - Sharks Circling Amelia Island, FL. Previously, she was pictured in the July edition of Panorama Editor’s Note.

The only flaws are a slow leak auto transmission pan, the rear hatch trim needs a repaint, and one key each for the ignition, doors & hatch. The RH 3-Part wheels are original 80’s and have some minor cosmetic flaws & curb but still show very nicely... They sparkle going down the road - love the 80's bling!

Asking $40K OBO for Rennlist members, as I’d like to keep her in our community, before listing on the Cars & Bids auction site. I also listed it in 928s For Sale.

If interested, or you'd like pictures of specific items please call me at the below phone number or email “[email protected]”.

Sean, I know…. It’s a tough call.

Not really as I have another P Car in the garage. The reason for selling is simple. The Euro was a project car the BLS club finished for an elderly couple in our club - they wanted to see the car finished. It came together very nicely and they were thrilled with the results. Now that it’s totally sorted, I’m at the point where I “don’t want to mess it up”! So like Ed and Blu Max it may be time to let her go to the next care taker. The Euro is a custom car and not for the P Car “purist” as Dave Mathews pointed out in Panorama, but the right buyer will fall in love with her! It’ll be tough to see & hear her drive off…

If you know anybody who's looking for a really nice, turn key, shark then send them my way and make an offer. I'd rather not go through the hassle of the car auction houses and the BS comments from nit-picking nut jobs with no intention of actually BUYING the car.

Well Joel, you would also have a pretty strong support section in the comments too. A lot of us know the car and you, and could give it a pretty good boost through the comments.

Yes I know and I appreciate that fact more than anything. I’ll keep her for sale in here and over at that “other” place for a bit. Not a lot of responses on here or there… Thanks brother!!

I tried listing on Cars & Bids but they insist on a ridiculously LOW reserve price in order to guarantee a sale. Like they know anything about the value of a 84 Euro that’s had $20K in new parts installed… and custom body work & paint (with clear bra)…. and restored interior… totally sorted AND brand new TB, Porken tensioner, Roller, etc, installed TODAY! 928 prices are higher than ever and their uninformed opinion on the car’s value pisses me off to no end!
