Hello eyveryone, BFR13 speaking, but my real name is too complicated to be written :mrgreen: .
I've 36 y.o, live in the south of France near Aix en Provence and owns couples of 924 & 944 since 2008.

My first one was an '80 924 2.0 Minerva Blue with A/C from Netherlands, i missed her.

Followed by a couple of 924, a 924S.

Actually, i have an badly yellow custom paint '84 944 i'll respray in the future, a '76 924 one of the oldest alive and a little bit rusty, and a '79 924 both bought as scrapyard cars but i'm currently rebuilding them, i'll present all my beauties in another topic.

Pls excuse my grammar, i'm french :lol: :mrgreen: :lol:

Cheers.

P.S : It is possible to be a member if you're not in the UK ?, i want to join :beer: .

Thank you all for your kind words :beer: and "Merci beaucoup pour l'accueil en Francais Fevs, je supposes que tu l'es aussi ?"

Here is some photos of my 924's taken the day i picked up from the previous owner.
He sold the 3 as a bundle and it was impossible to buy just one, despite of the lack of storage space near my house, i've picked them all.

The yellow damaged was only a parts car

File comment: The '79 gray 924, with a lot of parts missing (K-Jetronic, interior...) , i've already installed most of the missing parts from the yellow on it, but struggling with the bad wiring caused by an aftermarket A/C fitted by an idiot.
