Now that my GT is running well, I will consider selling it.

I put up some photos, they are quickly done, and I think I have a number of duplicates, but better than nothing :)

All maintenance has been done in the 5+ years I have had the car:
Timing belt and related parts reviewed and refreshed as needed
Full under intake refresh (all sensors, modules, gaskets, hoses, etc.)
MAS rebuilt
Fuel Injectors cleaned and tuned
Magnecor spark ignition wires (red)
Ignition coils new
Ignition control new
Intake and cam covers powder coated black with red lettering
Motors mounts replaced
Oil pan gasket replaced.
Clutch upgraded to dual disc
Stainless Rear Muffler Bypass (RMB) - stock rear muffler available
Short Shifter
A/C was upgraded to R34, has rear A/C
Upgraded stereo and speakers
Recovered door panels to accomodate single door speakers
Padded arm rests on doors and center console
Turbo twist wheels
Kumho ASXs 225/45 & 255/40 (perhaps 5k miles)
Ott sway bar end links front & rear.
Not installed yet - recovered Pod
I have records & paperwork for what has been since I took ownership.
163950 miles (on 1/1/12)

It isn't concours and has 164+ miles on it, so the buyer will be someone who wants a 928 GT to drive.

Currently has two unresolved issues.
1. PSD and ABS lights sometimes display shortly after beginning a drive, suspect module under driver seat to be cleaned.
2. Alternator gauge indicator sometimes reads zero. When checked battery voltage was still 13+, so suspect connections need to be reviewed, perhaps behind POD.

I understand that it will be the right buyer that wants it, and don't need to sell, but as I bought some property, I could use the money to get started with the building. Realistically I also know I have too many projects, and would like to get back to work on my 928 race car.

I certainly understand and respect your perspective.

While I am open to offers, the price is indicative of what it will take me to sell. The further from that price, the less enticed I would be. I won't be in any distress if nobody wants it more than I do :)

I bought it with deferred maintenance and high mileage. It has no deferred maintenance that I can think of, and I replaced anything that was questionable, as I intended to keep it forever ( I have had my '80 928 for going on 23 years and my '96 M3 for 13 years).

If an offer won't get me a long way towards putting up a building on my new property, then there isn't any reason to sell it.

Of course I already searched the 'net to see what an 888 looked like :)
Looks like it would be fun!

The bike is an interesting story in that the owner lives not far from a mod of Rennlist. The mod was kind enough to take a trip, look at the Ducati, send 44 pics and a short video of it being started, warmed and revved.

Sweet bike and tremendous support from a fellow 928er.

How many miles on the GT? was it raced? good rubber? rear a/c?

How many miles on the GT?

163950 miles right now

was it raced?

Not raced, or tracked by me, no signs that it ever was, as it was stock when I bought it.

good rubber?

Kumho ASXs 225/45 255/40, perhaps 5k miles

rear a/c?

Yes, rear A/C

Technically I have a pile of parts that in theory would assemble to be a stroker motor. If the GT sells, I would have one less distraction to keep me from working on the stroker motor.

Although I did add a distraction with the pending land purchase, but that is part of a nearly life long quest :)

I don't recall anything being done while the cam covers were off, just a review of the chains and sprockets, but there was anything that jumped out as needing to be done.

Under the intake everything was replaced with new parts. My intent was to replace anything that might need replacing anytime soon. I did not spare any expense.

I have set the cam timing since, using the Porken tool.

I only vaguely recall a discussion about it, as it was 4 years ago. I have the paperwork, so it could be reviewed for the parts purchased, that would clarify any questions like this.

I don't mind it being mentioned, this is a public forum, so anyone can find it who wants to. I do appreciate you thinking to ask me.

My intent is to still work on it until spring when interest might be higher anyways, at least get the POD swapped. I do drive it nearly daily now since we haven't had any snow. :D

Would you believe me Stan if I told you that,
at work, if I drive down to the pit, I could get out of the truck, reach down and make a tar ball as easy as making a snow ball. The oil runs out of the ground up here.

It was always easier to just drill the deep pockets because to extract the oil from dirt is not easy or efficient until new technology came along.

Its a shame in todays day and age we still burn oil though.
It could still be used for many other things. heck the creamer in your coffee is mostly oil.

It spends most of it time waiting in the garage, but I do try to drive it at least once a week. At least it gets more time and attention than the poor 928 race car :eek:

Just a quick update on this car, for prospective spring buyers, I am in the midst of the timing belt maintenance now. All looks well, recoated cam gears look good, tension on belt was correct, no signs of any leaks. I plan on taking some photos for review as well. The bottom of the motor is still dry as well (since the oil pan gasket was done a few years back). As the pump was changed last time, I am not planning on changing it this time unless I find an issue.
Happy New Year :)

No, I still have it.
I am doing the timing belt maintenance over this off season (winter) in preparation to promote it again in the spring.
If someone were ready to purchase, I could quicken the pace of the maintenance :D
