It is today with regret that I can confirm my forever car has been sold....never to be seen again nooo

Unfortunately it had to go to fund a building project!

Thank you so much to Simon of Cameron Sports Cars for their professional and honest service and for finding me a buyer in this less than ideal Brexit mess we seem to be in!
I will certainly consider them when I get back into some pork.

Thanks to everyone on this forum over the 9 years of ownership, a wealth of knowledge and some true enthusiasts.

I'll still be lurking around in envy until I manage to get back on the pork ladder Thumb Very Happy

Photo attached from end of October when I last drove the car to Bath and handed over the keys Sad Sad

Commiserations NIBrown.... Been there done that, though my wife loves he new home extension... You know what they say.. "Happy wife. happy life."

But have to admit that while the addition of new large kitchen, utility, cloak room, en suite, new dining room, sun room, patio, paving and Tarmac on the forecourt, I am reasonably happy too as I built a new large garage in the process Thumb

Was it worth it.. Question

1997 Porsche 993 Carrera 2S

PostPosted: Fri Mar 08, 2019 6:41 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

I am in the same boat

I sold my car outright to the trade late last year.

Currently for sale here: https://www.pearceanddale.co.uk/showroom/porsche-911-993-carrera-s-manual/

Will make a lovely car for someone.

Priorities change and time moves on. If I had my time again I wouldn't change a thing.

Enjoy whatever you use the money for.

Well done on the sale, although it is a bittersweet event. I really like the team at Cameron. They maintain my 993

Thanks Luddite, although I am gutted and will miss the specialness of the car, it is kind of a relief to not have the responsibility of looking after it since the prices shot up!.

It was a lot of money to have sat around in the garage and will be put to good use in building or new house Grin

I'm sure one day I'll find another special Porsche to put in my garage once I build it......hope you do too Thumb

Hooner, I think the sale was a bit slower than perhaps it would have been in the summer, certainly some uncertainty out there, but I still had reasonable money for it despite all the doom and gloom.......result Thumb

Thanks Rottenbend,

The money will be put to good use Thumb yours was a lovely example too.

You still got the 356 I remember seeing you post a few years ago?
It was you wasn't it? or is my memory failing me?
