Hi, I saw this thread at another forum so why not see who is here.

My name is Brad.
I live in Fort Mcmurray Canada.
I'm a automotive and heavy duty mechanic by trade.
Always been a high performance nut and speed junky.
I took a job in the oil sands as a mechanic at a GM dealer and then 2 yr later for a contractor fixing what ever was needed fixed.
I now work up here for Syncrude as a training coordinator to provide and monitor all of the trades that work in the open pit mine at Syncrude - base mine and Aurora.

I found this 89 928 while on holidays in BC and got to drive it for 3 weeks before it snowed last year.
Going through it now, replaced mains so far and anxious to get it back on the road.
I'm replacing the cats with straight pipe and would like to increase the power by a 100 horse or so. Pipes should give me 15-25.
I am looking for this air intake.

But thats enough about me, now its your turn.

Race car is still waiting.
'90 928 GT street car and '96 M3 track/street car are being kept running :)

I own/operate Excell.Net. Our focus is in developing and hosting websites, as well as providing the supporting services, email, search engine optimization, shopping carts, etc. 14 years in business, about the last 10 full time for me.

A website that may be interest we will be developing is perfexmfg.com. Ed, the owner of Perfex developed the revolutionary water pump for the 928 and is also restoring the Holbert 928 that set that production car speed record in 1987.

Hello my name is Dave and I am an Aries. I like to take long walks on the baech and...oops wrong site.Don't tell my wife.
I am a liscensed general carpenter and heavy equipment operator. I have worked for the city of Ottawa for the past 27 years. I also own and operate a small home renovation company.I've been hooked on cars since I was a kid,and finally found and was able to buy the 87 s4.My kids are both out on their own and it's time for my wife and I to enjoy our time together. The car will be a big part of that.We plan on touring as much as possible. Hope to meet some of you various functions.
I found the car here in Ottawa after a 9month search.It was built as a cdn car.
Here's what's been done so far:
8"headlights,new rad, new clutch(5 speed),belt and wp pump,control arms tie rods,brake rebuild,17" cup wheels,rebuild axel, ss brake lines, new gts style back end, bilsteen shocks (adjustible ride hight) on rearand new blaupunct cd stereo. Some of the work was done when I bought the car, some I have done. I should say the list is ongoing to my wife's dismay. Guess i've been hooked by the shark.
