Hi guys and girls. Some of you may already know me and my car, I am Pete from Center Gravity, and I own a 1982 Porsche 944 2.5 Lux.
For those that don't know me, I am a thoroughbred Porsche nut, and spend all day, every day (and some nights) making your pride and joy handle as it should. But that is not why I am here.
My 944 was a barnfind. Some of you may of seen it at the Classic and Restoration show last year. It is now very near completion, so thought I'd join the club. The car has been off the road for the last 24 years, and has undergone some serious overhaul to get it to where it is now. I am hoping to have it road worthy for a Scotland trip at the end of July.
Anyway, hello to all, I will get some photos up asap of my progress to date.
Pete.

Hi Pete,

You & Chris worked on my (now sold) red 944 Cab in May last year. Also caught up with you at Curborough. You going this year?

Great to hear you've nearly finished the restoration. Looking forward to seeing some pictures of the progress.

Cheers,
Bryan

Hello and welcome.

I'm looking forward to see some pictures of your barn find.

I will be over to see you a bit later this year as I want you to work your magic on mine.

Hi Pete

I was very interested to see your car at the Resto show, so will be great to see the progress you've made. Am expecting a decent alignment at least! I'm another 'frontrunner' fan.

All the best

Adrian
