Spent a few months looking for a 997.2 and finally picked one up this past December. Pardon the bad cell phone pic...

Switched to an Audi A4 B6 with 2.7tt conversion for my daily driver. Much better mileage than the four door wrangler and pretty fast.

Doesn't look like much which is the sleeper idea I was going for.

Welcome to the club, Ubi! emoji41.png

 

Thank you! Been thinking of a 911 for a while... The timing just seemed right.

 

The decision came down to a 997.2 and an early 991.1; ultimately went with the 997.2, keeping with a more analog experience but with the reliability of the 9A1 and I also wanted PDK. Plus, I can fit the kids in the back seat  :)

Excellent choice! Coming from a maniac watch collector, the 997 has perfect proportions!

 

It's amazing how it can be used daily, trunk space, rear seats in a pinch (or for kids)... It's the perfect daily driver. And yes, the saying is somewhat of a cliché but life is toooo short to drive a boring car

 

It won't be your last (or only) 911!

 

Cheers ol' pal

200,000 on that engine is just nicely run in. Keep on top of the maintenance and you can drive it indefinitely.

Mine is the 3.2 so it cooked the engine wiring. I've just finished a top end rebuild and new wiring. At Euro 2000 in parts it was more than the value of the car, but I don't care as I'm not selling.

100,000 miles before it's back to zero. How many times has it gone around Minty? 

I always thought the red was a repaint at some time, but it looks like the original paint on the dash. Was it something interesting like an airport fire truck once?

Nope this is Poppy Red, one of the original colors from the early 60s, with Limestone wheels and top.

 

How many times has it gone around? In 54 years? If it did 6,000 miles in a year that would be three times. I've personally done 65,000 miles in it so at least three. Maybe four?

U.K. Ones seem to nearly all be green with the occasional blue one. I guess Americans were more adventurous than British farmers in the 60's ?

Tell me about it, Euno. I was driving down for a mtn bike ride tonight and our road is pretty bad :ph34r: right now. I hit a pothole pretty hard and she quit charging. Pulled over, took a quick look, the Field wire was knocked off the generator. I re-crimped the spade terminal with my Leatherman and slipped it back on its post... problem solved. :tu: of course I left another square inch of skin on my exhaust manifold, again! You'd think I'd learn.

Keep on trucking! Love it. Not that you left more DNA in the bay, but because these vehicles were meant to just go. Nowadays without a computer most cars will just be dead.

Wow, I can't remember when. Last saw one of those. Always good to drive something a bit distinctive

Not got it anymore as moved to inner city with excellent underground service, but my most recent car was a Volvo V70 T5. Absolutely love that car.
