  1. Service today - nothing really exciting. Usual oil and all filters. Decided to change the Transmission fluid so will see f it help with the sometimes notchy gear change. Redline 75w90 - see how we go. Rapidly approaching 150k km and all is well. Jim.
  2. There is a car history report available as a link in the ad - looks like it was generated yesterday. Could be made up - but would be a lot of effort. States not written off / stolen. I was thinking outstanding finance + $60k but the documentation does not list a finacial incumberance. (Maybe wrong terminology)! Its about 2 mins from me! Jim.
  3. So my company needs to do about 110% of budget and then I sell the C2 right at the top of the market and I'll be close to making an offer! 😂
  4. It would be nice power wise but im assuming originality wins in the end especially on what looks like an unmolested one. They do quote 3.6 hp numbers as well though. Fresh engine is a massive plus - wonder if all the other bits and bobs are done? If so someone should be all over this. Trade an 04 for a 98......
  5. https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-Carrera-1998/OAG-AD-16757465/?Cr=2 Still cable throttle?
  6. Would be ideal candidate - absoulte basket case turned into a go-cart. Wholeheatedly agree...then again I do have "authority" issues.
  7. why is this still for sale? https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/2005-Porsche-911-Carrera-S-997-Manual/OAG-AD-16883361?pageSource=details&id=OAG-AD-16883361 I know its been detailed with chip fat (hot chips fat) but can be easily rectified with a 2 weekend / give it to a pro detail. Lobster claws actually look ok in this colour. Cheeky $65k ish offer - PPI / lowering springs and a detail...badda bing badda bang.
  8. Same here - my old man who has a 40+ year background in electronics more recently with heavy industry elcetical control module design basically got laughed at when he tried to apply to emigrate. He was here on holiday and went to immigration to have a chat - got treated like a twat. Had $$ to support himself well beyond retirement. Sold up in England and moved to Spain!! Sorry off topic - should be in rant..
  9. A lot of people would regard this as a crime - flat 6 soul gone - sound and smell etc being the main crimes I'd assume. When I'm older and can't be bothered worrying about engines exploding (I have a 996) this might be the way to go. BTW - Why am I on carsales looking for unloved Targa's 😂 Interceptor eh... Heinous crime to some -
  10. Tidy build. https://tinyurl.com/y4vnb8wk Would like a Targa of this era but not sure it would survive the daily grind in Sydney to be honest so this looks like the perfect way to make an older car a reliable daily when you only have access to one classic car. I'd image range / recharge times are the current negatives using this technology. When we are inevitably forced away from the internal combusion engine I'd much rather be driving a vintage electric v some KIA B/S to be honest. Wonder when DANSK start making replica door panels with solar cells embedded? Anyone doing this type of thing in Aus currently - motor wise? Interesting.
  11. Couple of 996 Cup cars giving it the beans.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FlCyb3Vs0o https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnsmPS5bqOg
  12. I've got a 04 - C2 and love it. It was either that or an early one as mentioned above. If I'd come across one of these I'd have been all over it.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6jCiB9dt0A Mad colour and all the right tweaks....This video has done the rounds already but would convince most people..
  13. Took the old girl for a blast from Brighton to Coalcliff through the National Pak (again) quick coffee and then back for a scrub / ultimate compound / wax and headlight restore. Rain X'd all glass / scrubbed the shite out the wheels and slapped on a bit of wheel protectant... Then had about 104 beers..
  14. I'd be cautious with this model - especially with the recent gastric luchini pin issues that have been reported. Trevelled spunions are also a concern. Be safe...
