Hi,

You may have seen my lament about my wife's insistence on a guards red, manual, 964 coupe or Targa, versus my wishes for a 993 or even an early 996....well here she is with her winning argument, a 1990 Targa 2. The neighbours know which of us is driving by the great difference in the rate of progress...even more so if she is not with me! It was her dream, not mine....I have my '7'.

Colin.

Collin, she looks real good! 964 in red is beautiful! It looks both classic and classy. I used to have a 964 cabrio in red with 18' wheels and it looked a lot better than stock 16" wheels

She's a fine piece of machinery. The rearward bias of weight takes a bit of getting used to and makes for tricky handling, especially when its wet, but apart from that, and as long as I'm careful, she's a dream. The Porsche on the other hand gives me no problems!

LOL! I hope Shirley has a sense of humour or is not web literate.
