    Will you be taking it to Adelaide for the Classic? I'm hoping to be in a e36 M3 there.
    how much will it cost to enter? i'm kinda strapped for cash right now..

    a very cautious few weeks of driving is coming up for me.
    You got the VN back!!!

    Woops wrong death trap..

    Man you will have sore arms and the Germans will know you drive a porshe as they will notice when your eating your arms are still turning the steering wheel..
    But looks like one hell of a buy congrats.

    P.S can you spring a plane flight for me and a Babarakes cloth so i don't miss your funeral.

    Couple of things:

    -I'm supremely jealous that you fit in a car like that.

    -Peel off the decals, stat.

    -Did the 1977 Aussie model SC's have the emissions restrictions that the US models did?

    -Good purchase, looks like it's got some cool upgrades to it!

    So... midlife crisis, eh clutch?

    I though only 40-year old, balding men who want a last chance at youth buy Porsches like this.

    j/k man, I love 911s. Great purchase- you saved yourself some money by buying it with the rollcage installed.

    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.

    decals will come off, only there for now because the car competed last week. i don't know about emissions, exhaust is not standard and engine came from a completely different model, so

    that's pretty much what i figured, i'd be spending more initially but saving money in th elong run

    edit: got some daytime pics when i took it for an early morning cruise. seat of the pants estimation is that it is almost as fast, or feels almost as fast as the GT3, no doubt thanks to the low weight and the 993 engine.
    will need a different set of wheels with street tires as soon as funds allow. the previous owner is sending all the oem equipment as well as a spare race seat to me in the next week.
