I hadn't read it, so thanks.

Very interesting.

Came up with an idea for another mod too:

Quote:
The Turbo didn't stay stock for long. The first change was a switch on the dash to knock out the taillights and brake lights in case of hot pursuit by law enforcement personnel.

That wasn't all he smoked!

I've got a great book on his cars and bikes. I'll dig it out and post the detials. He is also a hero of mine. He realy didn't seem to give a f.......hard start in life, lived to the full and liked knocking around with the average Jo as opposed to the LaLa Land lunatics.

Right the book:

McQueens Machines - The cars and bikes of a hollywood icon. By Mike Stone, Forward by his son Chad. ISBN 978 0 7603 2866-8
It has the 930 in it.
His porsches:
58 Speedster
69 911S
930

I think there was one other 911 and then I think his company Solar owned some of the Le Man cars from the film.
