So I can trade the Beemer over for an older Carrera 4 in great shape with a good service history and have enough for a beater pick em up truck for truly icky snow days.

My son Josh somehow has an M3 now :confused: so game on. I am moving in sharing a little hobbit house with Michelle, my rent and utilities are going to be 300 bucks, I am some sort of engineer and it shall be mine.

Yes, it shall be driven in the snow and rain and gravel. You gotta live. I am sure that touch up paint is available in Guards Red.

My mechanic back home will look at it tomorrow then will let you know.

Thanks for the thought. Headed down this weekend if the deal is still happening. My son is doing the legwork and my buddy is doing the deal.

Perry, beware the dark side.

A Bimmerhead's strength flows from the Force of finesse. But beware the dark side of German engineering. Anger, fear, aggression, Porsche; the dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight.


If once you start down the dark path, forever will the Porsche dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan's apprentice, young Master Bangle...

I did a little due diligence and will just keep the Beemer and will live on my memories of my 72 911 with the later turbo retrofit body, a 2.4 update and double triple webers.

Still getting a date now and then with the Beemer.....good enough for getting around from point A to point B.

Two more months then get to see how my son's 2002 M3 coupe performs when I head down for my submarine reunion.

Glad I got the last year before Mr. Bangle brought origami technology to the styling dept.

I think you should keep your beemer and pick up a 70 Porsche 914 project car. Pull the engine and replace it with a Rotary (Wankle) motor. It would be a really fun car.

Umm if I get a another Porsche again it will be one that Dr. Porsche would approve up. A 912 possibly would do if someone gave it to me, but a 911 is awesome. However got the Beemer pristine and can take my dog and a date to the drive in and road trip in comfort so set for now.

Bleh rotaries are nice in an RX-& I guess but with all the problems with the seals, poor mileage and cooling problems I just don't see it. If I do try another project car it will be a 911 motor in a VW bus.
