Re my 960 driver's seat: I got a price of 400.00 to re-leather the seat. Cheaper to buy a correct used seat from a recycler for 200.00. Also, I found seat covers designed specifically for the 850-960, in Europe (Greece), for 80.00 each. So I'm buying two seat covers, to keep the original seats and match the two front seats up, and stay in my budget.

Question on 960 radiator: There is a capped stub-out midway on the right side, it is dripping, and I cannot find a part number for the end cap (rubber) and clamp. All I find are complete radiators. The coolant loss is slow, but needs fixing.

Thanks George! I'll make every effort. That's a busy weekend (Formula 1 in Austin, Houston Air show). That wouldn't dissuade me, but I have a 7 year old son and in-laws to contend with.
Lovingly preserved and original '67 122S
Rough and rambunctious B20 swapped '65 PV544

On your drive to watch qualifying at The Circuit of Americas detour by the Monument Café so we can take some pics of your spectacular green Amazon!

Thanks.

Thanks George. I will bring my 1997 960 sedan. I have been working on it, learning the ropes on this complicated vehicle. All good for a retired engineer. The 960 drive train is excellent, surprising power. October 17 is my 70th birthday, so the meet is a nice birthday event for me.
