Hello everyone,
after a year of looking i finally bough my first 911. The car belonged to a forum member on here called me&my997. I collected the car on Saturday and drove it back up to Dumfries, Scotland.
I am an enthusiast and have had various cars & bikes over the years my last car being an Audi S2 Avant which i sold in November. Here is a link to the build thread:
https://www.s2forum.com/forum/member-s-area/member-s-cars/76829-red-s2-avant

I also currently have my 02 Ducati 998s as another project:
https://www.ducatiforum.co.uk/threads/998s-japan-import.73161/

I have always wanted to own a 997. I just love the way they look. Usually keep a build thread of the up keep and documenting the ups and downs of ownership of my vehicles. Here is a couple of photos of the car. Some of you might recognise it.

That was my old car (from April 2017 to July 2019), just found some old bills yesterday while sorting things out. PM me if you have any questions.

Welcome Andy.

Lovely car and great bike. I’ve just read through your thread. Cool

I have a love/hate relationship with Ducati. Had a yellow 748 years ago but it was nothing but bother, despite buying it off an older guy in our group who’d had it for years with no bother. frustrated

I’ve always stuck to jap stuff since. 748 and 996/8 is probably THE most iconic bike design ever though. Gorgeous. Thumbs Up

It is indeed!

Ridden it with friends over the years but especially enjoyed it on an 1198S. Emptied a tank full in 75 miles but worth it.

Really need to try it in my 997T some time.

Nice car btw Thumb

I have a 748 which is track bike aswell as the 998s and a 1200 monster. I managed to get 2 track days out of it before someone run into me at knockhill. While rebuild the bike I decided to do the belts and check the valve clearances followers. I soon found out why the guy i bought it of had sold it. Most of the rocker arms were knackered. Just spent a year slowly gathering bits and putting it right again. I hope to get a few trackdays on it this year.

Brilliant bit of road the Dalveen pass. I'm spoiled for choice round here. There is a lot of good roads around where i live for both cars and bikes!
