I drove my bookend yesterday for the first time since LeMans/Sepsis. It's covered in dust and is going to stay that way for a while. Damn

Yep, I didn't even think of that Duh

Hindsight is a wonderful thing, and in truth I needn't had bought an antique cast iron door stop.

We need a new 'Jackal'........I would do it but don't have the disposable income!

There's a guy over on the 996 board who has built a really interesting lightweight version - I like that idea, lightweight C2 looks with standard power Question


Do you have a link to the L/W 996 thread?

Thanks

I'm glad to seen Kim still posting- I hope you are coming to the farewell to summer Fairmile meet later in the month-17th I believe?

I can think of little else 911 related to post other than the fact I saw a 996 having new Michelins fitted at Costco earlier. Nice plate on the car C4 OUP


C4 OUP was my car until 2013. I bought the plate off ebay for £127 and left it on the car when I sold it.

Whoever has it now has been busy. Its done 40k since I sold it!
