Hi.

I would just like to introduce myself. I'm John and a keen car enthusiast. I have owned an air cooled 911 for the last 13 years or so but took the plunge and bought a 2004 996 GT3 in the middle of last year.

Looking forward to getting to know my car a little better and learning from this forum.

Kind regards

John. Smile

Thanks for the kind comments gents. Must admit I feel very fortunate to have a great couple of cars. I have owned the early car longer than I've had my kids. It's been restored and I can't see me ever selling her. It hasn't always looked this good.





















Kind Regards
John.

When I bought the car it had been "restored". I found out that it had been very badly repaired.

I ran the car for a good few years until the floor and sill dropped out of it. I then decided to restore the car properly.

Barry Carter carried out the metal work, Mike Bainbridge the engine and gearbox.







Sophie dosent look like that anymore!!







Car was finished in May 2012 and has since been used as often as I can. We have been to Euro Disney and Annecy, Classic Le Man twice, a run around Germany, Spa and a run around Scotland. Its fantastic.

Hoping to get about in the 996 GT3 too.
