    Which Porsche GT car?

    funny you ended up back in one as well. i am now dirt rallying an FC after selling my series 3 rx7 several months ago!
  2. yep "does it have park assist" mate if you have trouble parking a car as small as a 911, catch the bus

    Sad day, my ex car is dead

    talking to don and didn't realise this was one of the earliest cars they built back at T&D at the time would have been a special car

    When my triumph spitfire convertible top was damaged- they sourced some new old stock from the UK to replace it!

    Shannon’s has always assessed and paid out within with days for me. when the Gtr got a bingle in the rear quarter earlier this year they had it in a repair shop the next day and kept it til the job was done right - damn near repainted the whole car. Mint job. when the Datsun has an engine bay fire it was assessed within two days, classed as an insurance write off not stat write off, and back home within a week with a cheque for the full value in the mail the next week. given that what I pay is ballpark with everyone else, having a hard time moving companies when I know if it comes to crunch time they sort it out quick and painlessly.

    Blue tongue lizards...

    Most people can barely drive let alone recognise objects ahead on the road. Especially a pair of grey nomads in an asthmatic Toyota towing an overloaded caravan that couldn’t change direction in time even if they did see it. fun fact; blue tongues give live birth. I had to do a Caesarian on one. It’s weird.

    Air con upgrades air cooled 911

    i am the opposite - the retro air is a neat compact option and gets it all up the front of the car, keeps my engine bay clean (have ITB's as well), and experience with the electric aircon in the E9 showed it was good enough for a weekend drive or road trip.

    Air con upgrades air cooled 911

    i don't have the retro air system, but had a very similar setup made for the E9 (big open glasshouse). it worked quite well, not as good as a modern car system but better than a traditional 911 system (have one upgraded on the 964). i will be going the retro air system based off this, and to keep the engine bay free of clutter.
  15. yep. 2.7's were (are?) long considered a moving roadblock. now rose tinted glasses and scarcity has seen them become viable purchases. the aftermarket has kept up as well, so there are easier ways now to make the 2.7L cars able to move out of their own way. whereas before it was a lot of work and 3.6's were cheaper.. now it is the reverse. making a rev happy 2.7 with ITB's and decent engine management is much easier to do these days.
