Default 944 Cup tribute build

Many years ago, before work, family and life got in the way, a young man drove a normally aspirated 944 and life was good.



Unfortunately that young man had to sell his 944, but he always dreamed of finding it and buying it back. This past weekend, with the help of a friend and the substantial financial backing of other friends, it happened.





But the dream doesn’t stop there. The 944Crew will be undertaking the ambitious and frankly ill-advised task of building a tribute to the 944 Cup cars originally constructed for the Rothmans Challenge Series in Canada. But 944 Cup cars are Turbo you insist! Correct, after 1987 they were, however to begin with they were normally aspirated and driven by the likes of Scott Goodyear, Paul Tracy and Ron Fellows. The livery we’re aiming for will be close to what was seen on chassis WP0ZZZ94ZGN455888 which raced in the Rothmans Series all through 1986 and 1987. It ran at all the races including Mosport, Montreal, Mont-Tremblant, Sanair and Shannonville, and finished mid to back of the pack at the hands of its first owner, an amateur driver.









Now the starting point…



First step, a bath…







Then seats and carpet out…



Now we’re making money!


Gross…


Strip out the back…


Check the corners…




There’s that wrench we were looking for!!!
