I love the way Sport Classics look on the 986!

I think I know this car, was up for sale in Michigan 3 years ago for $15.8K at only 8K miles on the clock, came across the ad right after I bought one, of course silver/ red combo, with 59K miles for $8K, probably I would have not put down that much for an intended daily driver but it made me think quite a bit...

I got chucked that it includes an original double-row bearing out of the car... that should bring extra bucks!

Have a picture of the wood 917 knob? Would love to see how you installed it and how it looks. Very cool retro thing that only Porsche geeks would get!

Here is my knob made of mahogany, matching my factory riveted wood steering wheel.
