Yup. That's Webster Pass, with Red Cone in the background. Trailhead is 1.5 hours or so out of Denver. One of my all-time favorite trails...



Here's the SuperEnduro on Red Cone, different ride of course. *Way* steeper than it looks in the picture!

I think on Rennlist I'm just "Cole", Pelican it's "Streetcrawler" Just kinda depends on the screen name rules of a particular site

Congratulations. The 3.2 Carrera is hard to beat. And you've got the Fuchs wheels and the G50 transmission.

Did you buy from a dealer?

It's going to be a long winter for you.

Yes. Was hoping to buy from a private party but this one fit the bill and was only a couple of hours away. The dealer seems to be a good oufit. It will definitely be a long winter. Counting down the days to spring already.............

Me too. I graduated in 1985 - at the time these along with the BB512 Ferrari and the Countach were the bomb.

This one looks so, well...decadent, Wall Street 1980's, I just love it.

yeah sometimes buying from a dealer just fits the bill...

This THREAD definitely, DEFINITELY pushed me over the edge. I had been lurking over at rennlist since 2005 and bought my first PCar this year... I drove my 911 to work today and enjoyed every bit of it.

Lurking for seven years? You are a more patient man than I am! I found Rennlist and Pelican a few months ago after following this thread off and on for a year or so.

Just got back from my first drive with the 911. Never drove a Porsche before or any sort or real sports car. Drove a car with a manual transmission once 30 years ago. First five minutes were pretty shaky, next hour was a blast. These things truly are like go karts. Drives just a bit different than my 530 .
