That would be great. Thanks.

Oliver,

Really? That is very good to hear. Has a collector bought it? a vintage racer? Any idea what livery is on it?

My dad and I went to the Porsche factory in September and we were able to look up some of his results and photos in the archives. It was really cool.

Hi Derek,

I bought it in derelict state off the guy who wanted to use it in club racing but aborted the project. I also own No.5 which is totally original. So I would like to get No.2 restored based on the No5 car and based on pictures from period. All the trick bits are still with the car.

Will keep you posted.

Oliver

Just an FYI... I updated my 924/944 racing playlist to include some clips from an SCCA National at Summit Point from 1991. Not the greatest quality but it was nice seeing the car race again.

Also added a few other SCCA Trans-Am races and SCCA Runoffs clips that included the old D-production / GT-3 924s and the GT-1 turbos.

Also added a few more photos to page two of the gallery. Updated a few rally pics from the Sinsheim Museum and 924 models.

Those pictures are awesome.

The number 76 on page 2 is Mike Cyphert. That was Tom Brennens car, and it won the GT3 runoffs with Tom driving it.

Tom sold it to Mike, who ran a lot. Mike sold it to a guy nemaed Braunlich from the Pittsburg area. Didn't run a lot. I bought it in 97 after seeing an add for it in Autoweek, ran it for about 5 years after a complete rebuild, which was done by John Truman. I believe John might have worked on your dads car. I know he did Stephan Edles's (sp).

Mine is siting in storage at my shop, in good shape but with a broken valve spring. One day I'll get around to fixing it.

Mike Cyphert is a great guy and was fast in that car. Especially at Nelson Ledges. My dad and I have reached out to him lately.

I believe Braunlich had a brother and they actually ran two 924s together. Cyphert sold his 924 and raced the Honda CRX and soon after two 924s would enter as a team and I think they were brothers. I believe it was the Braunlich brothers or at least if not brothers Braunlich ran one with a team mate. I think they were lime green and orange.

In this picture you can see Cyphert is in his Honda, my dad is still in the Porsche before he got the Toyota, and there are two other 924s in the field. One is orange and one is green. I think that is the Braunlichs.
