    I just picked up a 968 for toodling around town. Fun car. It's clean and well kept, but needs some updating. Shocks/struts are soft and I suspect that various suspension bushings could do with freshening up.

    Nice. If you'd like a set of OEM 16" for a "Winter Set-up," shoot me a PM. With my Cabriolet on the market, I won't be needing them any more.

    My first Porsche. I knew it had to be a 911, but other than that, I knew relatively little about the differences amongst them other than they switched from air cooled to liquid cooled engines at one point.

    I lucked in on this very nice and unmolested 1995 Porsche 993, the last of the air cooled 911 series.

    It goes well with my other boxer, a mint and unmolested 1990 BMW R100 GS.

    No regrets.

    Thanks to a cell phone yapping driver, or I would have never considered buying the car I had always wanted.

    How true. I got talked out of a 996 and after a test drive in a 997, my mind was made up.

    So a 993 it was. :D

    Got all your winter projects done on it, Alex?

    I'm trying to decide when to pull mine out of storage; the weather has been flukey here lately.

    My spring project is get rid of a bit of front wheel fight between 80 and 100 km an hour. The plan is to re balance the front wheels once more, and if it won't go away, perhaps change out the front control arm bushings to Elefant ones.

    Also, I may change out the master clutch cylinder to eliminate an intermittent grauk.

    But everything is working well.

    Oh yeah, and the ST is going into Anderwerks to have a Beemer Boneyard fuel pump flange clamp installed, along with BB quick disconnects.

    Nice Yellow 95! I drive mine way too much to clean it like that underneath... but I am jealous!
