We are used to horsepower snobs; here in LA at Porsche events it's all show.

Both girls are good at the track and AutoX, the car I bought has a chip, reinforced towers, SS lines and looks like it spent a few weekends at events already. I'm hoping we can make the dentist in his GT3RS drive his mirrors for a few laps.
Per info and a sticky here, the coolant system and all bushings are being replaced, fluids, it already has new Konis all round. I would have preferred a 99 but Daytona over black nappa, the force was too strong, I couldn't resist. Easier smog here in CA might wind up being a plus. The "boy racer" seller is 68 and it has all vin tags and is otherwise all stock.

I didn't really buy the car as a collectible, I just wanted to make sure when it comes time to sell, there is a ready and willing pool of buyers. But reading posts here, once the car is part of the family, it may never leave.

Thank you very much for your helpful response, I know little about these cars, but if you need anything in the Porsche world, let me know.
I had a 95 low serial number that I installed the subframe reinforcements in for a few hundred bucks. Car has PSS9s, Cool Carbons, was corner balanced by me within something like 14 pounds with me in the Recaro SRD seat, and had 16" Kumho Rs.

I pissed off a few 911 drivers at DEs who didn't like me tailgating them.

^^^ Pissing off 911 drivers sure is fun, tee hee. I do it all the time to later model cars but there are some boys with older, stripped down 911 lightweights that go by me and then run away and hide.
Didn't Colin Chapman once say to "add lightness"?

I had a student in my 128i and I saw a buddy in his GT3 coming around about to enter the long straight. I told my student I was going to give the orange car coming up on me a point by, and was also going to break the rule and not lift. He glanced in the mirror, and before he had a chance to ask why it was over. Sometimes it fun, other times it's best to admit defeat before entering the arena.

I’m gonna piggyback off this thread instead of making a new one.

What would you value my car at? It has 100k miles, recent collision history, and a clean title. Full description in the link below.

Kong, I would probably pay $9k for your car, if I was feeling generous. I think the major downside is the fact that itís been in a pretty major accident and the paint isnít in the best shape. You should also address the minor things in your Cons list before even putting it up for sale (try and cut that list down to only a few things).

As the car stands now, it would be a great second/project/track car to mod and beat on. I probably wouldnít daily it and would keep it at least 10 miles away from any car shows.
