Also have a 74 914/6 conversion car for sale,( roller with conversion parts. Any info on 641-4122 would really be appreciated. Steve

Bernie-I loved the article on the "Yellow Slugger" that Clay Dopke built. He's considered one of the best in Porsche circles. I also have a 935 copy by Clay. It's a red '85 930 car built when he had Bavarian Coach Werks in West Carrollton, Oh. It's been a great car. I've been trying to contact Clay about some mods I'm planning on the car. If you have any contact info I would sure appreciate it. I'm sure Clay will remember my car. .
Hi: I found your article very interesting, especially while refering to Clay, I have lost track of him! I also have Porsche owned and built by Clay for his for his personal thrills. If I remember correctly he nick named it Satin!
It is a 1984 930 (15,000 miles)fly yellow with a matter aluminum roll cage, the engine has been recently rebuilt to a 3.6 liter twin tubo, Motec engine management etc. At 1 bar on the chaises dyno it produced 558 HP(5600 rpm) and 593 ft lbs of torque (4500)RPMs. I bet that you will agree that the front wheels must pointed straight when giving it a lot of throttle!!! Best of luck and if you know how to get in touch with Clay, let me know.
Bernie -- I see you have the redux article of the Banana Slugger on your site. It made me smile when I saw it. I guess I just can't get away from that car! Enjoyed talking with you last week. Best and stay in touch
THANK YOU! for giving 935 addicts (like myself) such a awsome site. I wish you all the best in the future.
Hello, Jacques Rivard of Deschambault, Quebec, Canada may be trying to sell Automotive items on websites that he never paid for.
