Look forward to the next trip with you in a Boxster! Grin

Thanks for the intro Andy.

I am the new custodian of Andy's car, and what a lovely car it is to. I've always liked 993's, I love the shape and the fact that it is aircooled.

I'm looking forward to adding some fun filled miles on the car, like I did in my 73 911T pictured here from a weekend drive in Yorkshire with the DDK forum guys.

Welcome Mike. Congrats on the purchase - you've a well-cared for car there and I know Andy was sorry to see her go but pleased to sell to a fellow enthusiast. I hope you get the same enjoyment of the 993 as he has over the years. Will no doubt see you around at a meet or on the roads around NW London.

Love the 911t too!

Rob

Welcome to the forum Mike Thumb

Great to see that Andy's 993 is continuing her journey with a fellow enthusiast - air-cooled all the way!

Loving that 911T - looks awesome Grin

It was strange seeing 'your' car at The Fairmile knowing that you weren't there.

Some might say I got the best of both worlds. Grin

Nice one Mads. They are fabulous cars but not the be-all-and-end-all at the end of the day. Plenty of just as pretty and very fine cars out there.

Not really in the same league but I know you are after a soft top so how about a 356 replica? You may have the pockets to facilitate an original but I was doing some digging a while back and came across these chaps who also do coupes. There's also Chesil who are well regarded (also very pleasant on the telephone).

Yes I don't think a Chesil would quite cut it on a Euro road trip! You mentioned a Boxter I think; that would be fab Thumb

The car is still here. I had it up for sale unofficially and came to a provisional deal with another forum member (Bund). We couldn't quite come to a deal due to some items which came to light on the PPI. I have since rectified most of these at some expense and enjoying the car more than ever. No doubt it will be for sale again some day. Just not yet as need to now get my monies worth in smiles-per-mile!
