Nah. We could talk about values as well.
Ignore me, I'm only jealous of your car. Lovely stuff.

Darren, the car is stunning and I love the details .. its odd to think that the majority of 'modern' porsche fans who see the car won't even notice most of them

Me too :) .......and to be honest I was expecting way more ribbing than that.......it's why I've been holding back! :wink:

But then the restoration thread is done and at over 90 pages long is way too heavy and tedious to attach to my signature!......

....time to stop calling the car a 'DT Special' or 'Mongrel' and move on........now this is just a simple diary about driving and living with my T.....promise to keep content to a minimum.....




....kinda! :wink:
