2006 Porsche 911

PostPosted: Sat Apr 04, 2015 9:33 am    Post subject: The watercooled Porsche challenge. My 1980 Porsche 924 Reply with quote

On Wednesday the 29th April I will be driving to Germany with a few other friends in our Porsche's to the Dinslaken Porsche show in Germany.

My friends have Porsche 944's and I was of course booked to go in my GT3.

Anyway having giving it some thought I have set myself the challenge of buying a Porsche as cheap as possible and getting it roadworthy and driving to Germany in it..Am I mad?..possibly. Grin

So having scanned ads in the usual places I spotted a 1980 924 that had been badly listed with poor pics and text that had failed to sell..the best thing was it was only 10 miles away.

The car has not been on the road for more than 6 months so will need to be collected on a trailer.But crucially it starts and will drive.

It is remarkably original with 124k on the clock but does ideally need the wings replacing but that is the only rust on the entire car.

Here are some pictures of it at the vendors house.
I am hopefully going to be collecting it this weekend and then will need to burn the midnight oil.I might not make it,but I will give it a damn good go!

The clock is ticking!! thumbsup

That looks ace, good luck with the drive over. I keep looking at 944's for some unhealthy reason, I think they are a great looking classic at the moment.

Nice one. What could possibly go wrong.

Had the use of my chum's 924 back in 1983 Grin
That psychedelic interior looks great. Would love to tag along but unfortunatley will be overseas PC

You should have chanced your luck with this turbo Here and as it's met the reserve there's a BOGOF thrown in the deal Grin

Get to The Tryp Hotel at Oberhausen for breakfast. It's only about 10 miles from Dinslaken. I'm sure there'll be plenty of pax seats available. You can share the entry cost. £25 per car + 2 passengers. Thumb
