"Porscheless" Andy?!?!?!?

On a more serious and sadder note ....... has there been any news of Stimpy (Seb) and his car? ........ hopefully they both got safely back to the UK. Check in if you can with an update ....... that's if you feel like giving us an update.

I didn't see the car after the crash but I wonder if it is repairable? ..... I hope it is.

Seb it was good to meet you and sad to see you have to leave before we got to Stuttgart let alone Dinslaken.

Take care mate and I am glad you were not injured in the crash.


I've just got back from the Spa Classic and Nigel (tdiquattro who suggested the trip to Seb) joined us in his lovely 964 Targa. The latest news is that Seb's car is back in the UK and he is negotiating a mutually acceptable settlement with his insurers.

You're right Andy - the good thing is Seb was OK. After having spent some time at the scene, looking at the car, etc, I can confirm he's a very lucky boy to have escaped unhurt...

That's fantastic news about Seb - from the description of his "off" the same evening that it happened, I was really surprised to see him in one piece that night at dinner.

I really hope he manages to get the outcome that he wants with the insurers.

Yes, it may well have been you, thanks! (Think a couple of people told me before I actually went and got them).

The frames are from Amazon... Rotterdam Plastic Photo Frame 40,2 x 29,9 Inch ( 76 x 102 cm ). Not exactly cheap, due to the size.

Hi there chaps... Have been on here catching up with things for a while but keeping schtum till i have some info. Looks like the rest of the trip was excellent Thumb

The current situation is that the insurers are trying to write the car off and i am fighting it. If not ,dependant on final figures i shall be buying it back and fixing it. I'm definitely not done with 964s yet, and just not ready to stoop to a watercooled... Laughing

Many thanks to everyone for their support and kind words at the time. I'll ask for this not to turn into a discussion thread but shall update you all when i have finalised with the insurer.

If anyone has any pearls of wisdom re insurers then please feel free to pm me.

Cheers lads!
