Sounds well good :cool: I’ll be there, not sure in which car..


996 is as hated as a 924 (possibly more) so you'll be welcome in either :lol: think the 924 is more appropriate though ;-)

I'm lucky I'm young enough to take on the challenge of owning one then!

Absolutely nothing wrong with turbo ownership Stan. Like any car, what is wrong with turbo ownership is lack of previous owner maintenance. No issues with that on an ex Kozzy car. Mines been turn key for quite some while. In fact its just returned from a morning of errands in Bristol dealing with torrential wind and rain, axle deep puddles and long traffic jams. In between that it was boosting nicely

PS the Uniroyal Rainsports are superb in this weather!

I am quite content to leave ownership of a Turbo to those that enjoy them (and curse them occasionaly) , I am sure it is a pleasure I will have missed.
