Anyone else see that article about the guy who's clocked up 725k miles in his 1975 Porsche 911 Turbo? Now that's a life long dream if ever there was one.

This is a great story if ever there was:

What a great story, good find Alex. It puts the garage queens to shame and just goes to show that the cars don't vapourise once they pass 100,000 miles Bandit

This guy is living the dream and winning at life! Love this story!

Would like to know what work it has had. Got to have been one or two engine rebuilds, re-sprays etc

Well I suppose when it got to 100k he thought.. I might as well keep it now it's worthless... obviously now it's 7 times worthless so he would need to pay someone to take it away.. Hand
I'd not seen it before so thanks Alex and Ragpicker for the links Thumb

Although compared to this one it's barely run in Laughing
