Good day my friends was created by mm928
Just got back from The outer Banks (OBX for those that know) of North Carolina. Great vacation, pretty nice weather and great food!

Checked on the progress of the new interior on the Shark and it is coming along nicely,,,maybe a couple more weeks. He has almost all the parts done then needs to re0install after the carpet is done, which is what he is doing know. He is doing a nice job, and adjusting a few things (like the rear A/C leather won't work for me because I don't have one on an 83!) when he gets to them. I am hoping we can use it elsewhere

One interesting quote from the guy to doing the interior....

"I will never do another 928!"

:eek:,,,,looks like I am first and last. He got the dash out and now it is back in and he wanted to show me the spaghetti strings of wires in a pic he took. I kinda laughed and just shook my head and said.. I know, I know....:)

Now he knows what I meant when I told him they can be complicated compared to almost any other car that age.

Anyway - nice to be back

UPDATE - UPDATE - The Shark is home with a new Blue (mostly) Leather interior - Pics and more info tomorrow night.... - I am a happy dude today

LOVE the OBX! That's my favorite spot in NC now. My wife and I really don't want to bother going ANYWHERE else on the coast. Good food, good atmosphere, I'll just have to take the 928 next time!

Absolutely !

Some of the Favs we tried this time
Kill Devil Grill - AWESOME and on the beach road
FireFly - Southern neat and different foods (dep fried moon pies....HA)
Tale of the Whale - for the big time seafood fix,,,,you will be STUFFED
Mulligans for great burgers etc.

among others, but you also have to eat by 5 or 5:30 or like to wait in lines....so many good places.

Taking the shark would be fun!

Micheal,

Keep your eye open for a "Sharks at the Banks". It's something I've been thinking about ever since we went. We could have some of the NC crew AND the SOVA crew out for something cool I think.

Wouldn't be until sometime next year, but I've got a few ideas for the NC area that I think will be really cool.
