    Hi Xavier

    Are you living in France? If yes, how do you manage to register the car for a drive in the US? I am also interested in buying a Porsche there and drive around before returning but it seems quite difficult to register the car as a foreigner. Any tricks?

    Thanks and have fun with your car

    Hi Xavier

    Thanks for your answer. I cannot send you a PM (I think I haven't enough posts) but you could send me a mail to zhivago@gmx.ch.

    Thanks
    Rick

    De-racing a bit Ruby or make it a streetable version (either way works) is in progress and soon complete.
    Install a RS lightweight carpet in the cockpit
    Install a perlon headliner
    Re localise the extinguisher
    Change the FIA bucket seats to more period correct and comfy ones (pepita yummy)
    replace the ATL fuel cell by a 85L tank
    install 2 fuel pump (one primary, one backup) - remember I'll do a 3000 miles roadtrip
    Install wipers and windshield puk tank
    Replace the exhaust headers and install a Dansk steel peanut shooter

    Remaining is the external lighting system all around.

    Ruby is now registered in the USA, and am about to get her insured.
